Who is Octant8? 

OCTANT8 was founded by A PROFESSIONAL CULTURIST, award-winning, saxophonist, amateur poet, speaker, writer, and a mechanical engineer turned furniture designer, turned touring rock musician, turned inventor, turned business consultant.


Kevin Gosa

Kevin has played saxophone all over the world, from Texas to Thailand. As a cultural generalist, he's lectured at MIT and Baylor University, planned international conferences, published poetry, written essays on post-modernism in Latin-American politics, popcorn, and seersucker suits. He co-hosts a technology and culture podcast and can solve a Rubik’s Cube in under three minutes.

Bryan Horvath

Bryan has designed Cadillacs, run an indie record label, directed an international arts non-profit, raised millions of dollars, lectured for MBA programs, and toured 45 states as the front man of a modern rock band. He's an inventor, product developer, entrepreneur, engineer, and corporate advisor. He is also an semi-professional cake maker and master furniture craftsman.

Bryan and Kevin are exceptional communicators, useful in both pulling information from individuals throughout the organization, and articulating problems and providing sustainable solutions. I continue to refer to their work on a weekly basis.
