When former Washington Post high school sports writer B.J. Koubaroulis realized that media consumption habits were changing, he decided to start his own business. Named Synthesis Multimedia Productions, Koubaroulis’s company specializes in the digital production of live sporting events. However, as a result of COVID-19, there are no longer any live events or sports to cover. Here’s how Koubaroulis is looking ahead.
