New York, New York, United States - 02-28-2023 -

Samantha Tauber, award-winning Australian multimedia artist, music producer, entrepreneur, thought leader, storyteller, live performer, and Chief Metaverse Officer for her company, VNCCII, was recently selected as the Top Chief Metaverse Officer of the Year by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for her craftsmanship as a pioneer in the Metaverse industry.

These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, longevity in the field, other affiliations, and contributions to their communities. While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor, only a few members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. All honorees are invited to attend the IAOTP's annual award gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achievements.

Samantha Tauber, otherwise known by her Metaverse persona VNCCII, is a creative futurist, technologist, Metaverse storyteller creator, worldwide keynote speaker, electronic music producer, rapper, singer-songwriter, D.J., and visual artist with a unique, original voice and vision. Storytelling, music, gaming, audio/visual, virtual production X.R. cinema, technology, and digital fashion are just a few of the Metaverse's many industries where VNCCII has made significant contributions via innovation.

As she travels into either a "Utopian or Dystopian'' future, she aims to help raise humanity's collective awareness and consciousness. An experimental audiovisual venture that merges "phygital" X.R. and V.R. live stage presentations to take action from the screen to the real world. Featuring a cast of future Sci-Fi characters who have come to Earth to reawaken mankind, VNCCII is a fractal chapter in the bigger saga of Space A.IPERA.

At the forefront of Metaverse thought leadership and technology, when VNCCII isn't touring the globe speaking on topics such as personal sovereignty, avatar identity, and the Web3/Metafi creator economy, she's hosting a live broadcast show called 'Future Humans' streaming on Unreal Game Engine, to answer your most profound questions about the technological and philosophical future.

Samantha Tauber began her career as a singer-songwriter and live performer. Still, she quickly expanded her skillset to include creating production and multimedia content using programs like Ableton Live and Unreal Engine 5. Sami was an early adopter of the multimedia creator route for the VNCCII project in the Metaverse and beyond since she was a self-taught technologist at the dawn of technology's era of widespread accessibility. 

In 2018, Sami was inspired by the potential for the music business to converge with the gaming industry and Hollywood for innovation in the Metaverse and beyond, so the VNCCII tale was born. She also enjoys reading about future science fiction books with powerful female Superheroine characters. She developed a virtual avatar named VNCCII to serve as the driving force behind all of her imaginative endeavors so that she could demonstrate her skills in multimedia storytelling. Sami has developed a science fiction Space A.I. Opera in which the main character is a fictitious figure named VNCCII, a future galactic Super Sentient Superheroine. With the Metaverse in mind, this I.P. was developed to inspire new tales via collaborative real-time world construction between the creators and their followers.

Throughout her illustrious career, Ms. Tauber has received many awards and accolades and has been recognized worldwide. In 2023, she is being considered for an exclusive interview on TIP radio. She has also been nominated for an award in the ‘Music Metaverse’ category for the Metaverse Entertainment World Summit & Award Show alongside star-studded nominees such as Gorillaz and David Guetta. The nomination was supported by Tony Hollingsworth, one of the world’s largest braodcast event producers over the last three decades, like Nelson Mandela Tribute Concert, One Humanity & THE WALL (Pink Floyd) stating that “VNCCII is an amazing music artist, but also a thought leader on web3 and the metaverse.” She was selected as one of the Top 100 Women Thought Leaders of the Future for Metaverse and Web 3. In 2022 she earned the acknowledgment of Top 10 Personality Disrupting the Music Industry and the Most Dynamic Entrepreneur from the Entertainment Industry to Watch in 2022 by APAC Entrepreneur, as well as the next music Metastar by IPSOS 2022. Samantha recently performed a headline show as VNCCII at the iconic venue the Lower Third in London as part of the Brit Awards event week sponsored by Mastercard. 

Further, she has been the most in-demand speaker at events all over the world on the topics of the Metaverse, the Web 3, and creative leadership, the symbiosis of creativity and technology with artificial intelligence including World Economic Forum, SUPERVERSE Dubai, the Immerse Global Summit in Europe, NFTCon, the NFT Show in Europe, the World Metaverse Show in Dubai, the Leap Conference, the Creativity Conference, The State of the Story |VIP Summit [Magnet Media Films], and many others.

Stephanie Cirami, President of IAOTP, stated, "Including Ms. Tauber on our panel was a no-brainer. Samantha is a very knowledgeable and talented artist. We hold her in the greatest esteem as IAOTP's 2023 Chief Metaverse Officer of the Year. We look forward to seeing her at the 2023 Annual Awards Gala."

Looking back, Samantha urges aspiring business owners to keep going even if it seems like no one is supporting them. To form an opinion based on how you choose to frame the world. It's never going to be simple, but remember that adversity is a natural part of the human experience and uses it to strengthen us as people. In your own ways, everyone plays the role of a hero. Contribute to the good by becoming a catalyst for change. Right now, humanity needs each of us to become fully authentic.
