  • What I'm Hoping to Do

    Start and Grow My Startup(s)

    I deeply enjoy conceptualizing and designing new digital products and platforms. At the moment I have 4 serious projects sitting on the back burner while I wait to find some interested seed investors. Im working on the design and Im keeping my eyes and ears open for a technical co-founder. If you'd like to talk and discuss please feel free to get in touch

    Do Work That Matters with Open Minded, Creative People and Contribute Continuously to Meaningful Projects.

    As a creative, ENTP, millennial I develop a bit of bile at the back of my throat at the thought of doing one thing for the rest of my life. I hope to work on meaningful projects that have a real lasting positive social impact. Profit is just one metric of success and I hope to create an ROI in many different ways. I'm a looking forward to developing new deep relationships with interesting people and collaborating together with them.

  • What I'm Passionate About

    Well it isn't a short list, I'll tell you that much.

    Social Entrepreneurship

    I firmly believe that the best chance we have of solving society's most pressing issues will come from the crazy ones, the ones that have the audacity and tenacity to reimagine a better tomorrow as well as the sweat and focus to go and build it.

    The Untapped Power of Social Media

     

    The social internet is still in its first iteration, we are playing with different capacities on a very simplistic level. I see a future where the capabilities of the web will expand to more than a communication technology, it will be a technology in which we join to create real communities that are purposeful and efficient in accomplishing their vision. I have conceptualized and designed just such a platform and I am currently looking for the right person to join me in building it out.

    Behavioral Economics and Positive Psychology

    I enjoy the often counterintuitive insights that these two disciplines continue to discover and I recognize in them a transformation in the model of what is predominantly considered the good life and the good society. I feel that by implementing policies and life choices based on these disciplines will bring us closer to the ever elusive and noble aspirations that us humans have.

    Social Psychology and Advertising

     

    I enjoy learning and discovering the ways in which we can use the insights of academia for creating campaigns that do more than create a financial ROI but rather facilitate real lasting social change in the areas that are of importance to all of us.

    Creativity and Innovation

    I marvel at the ingenuity  that goes on in engineering and design and I recognize in those disciplines the framework for an ever-evolving culture one that is able to adapt and problem solve. I enjoy learning about all of humanities creative projects as well as coming up with my own.

    Lifelong Education

    I am passionate about learning new things constantly and as a result I read voraciously. I also take advantage of the free educational material that is so abundant on the web. Currently I am teaching myself Web Development as well as reading a wide variety of books related to my interests.

    Philosophy

    The big questions are always inspiring and keeping a meta perspective helps me avoid sweating the small stuff.

    An Excerpt from 'Epitaph' says it best,

    You ask me:

    What is the greatest happiness on earth? Two things

    Changing my mind as I change a penny for a shilling;

    and

    listening to the sound of a young girl singing down the road

    after she asks me the way.
