Welcome to AR Media
AR Media is a consulting firm located in Austin, Texas that is dedicated to providing an equal opportunity for creative visions and voices that are often overlooked and unfairly measured against social status and wealth, with affordability and accessibility to thrive.
By empowering the everyday entrepreneur to define their own “success” outside the confines of today’s rigid media landscape, we provide expertise to those who think differently and understand what it means to operate outside the box of society’s expectations.
Founded by attorney, and tech journalist, Andrew Rossow, AR Media was born at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 as an affordable, accessible resource for creatives, startups, and SMBs who were struggling to just get by with their everyday business, and if lucky, the necessary media exposure.
Coming together during the pandemic, Andrew and his now wife, Cassie, pledged their passion to supporting socially conscious innovation, while lending a microphone to those whose voices have gone unheard.
Andrew is the founder and CEO of AR Media. His academic background in law, which fuses his love for reading and writing with media journalism, has enabled him to bring the specialized skill sets and ethical responsibilities of a lawyer into the client relationship as he helps guide entrepreneurs who think differently and outside society’s expectations, through the court of public opinion (mainstream media).
At the start of his legal career, Andrew chose to take an unconventional path that differed from that of a traditional lawyer, and immersed himself in the evolving media landscape after his 2016 legal thesis, “Gotta Catch a Lawsuit” – highlighting the legal implications mobile augmented reality gaming would soon bring to consumers and SMBs, using the newly launched Pokémon Go game as a case study – garnered significant attention from the legal/tech communities.
Throughout his active legal career, Andrew has simultaneously balanced the life of a tech journalist and editor across industry-leading publishers, including Forbes, AboveTheLaw, HuffPost, Hypebeast, Entrepreneur, Bitcoin Magazine, CoinTelegraph, and more.
His knowledge and expertise has been featured on local and national programming such as BBC, NASDAQ, Bloomberg, Forbes, Ticker News, CoinDesk, Decrypt, and ABC/NBC/CBS/FOX affiliates throughout the United States.
He received his J.D. from The University of Dayton School of Law and obtained his Bachelor’s Degree from Hofstra University in New York.

"Ethics are what keep lawyers accountable to themselves and their clients – today’s digital landscape and evolving media landscape is no different. The one constant is the power of a captivating story that is the heartbeat of every successful innovation."
