I am just a human trying to understand my surroundings.
Self-Aware Value-Oriented Micro-Biography
This…blurb…is meant to describe me, but that's a difficult task. I am so many different things—sometimes all once. But there are a few specific things you should know:
- I play to learn I experiment with things that interest me, especially unusual combinations of things (board games and Dante's Divine Comedy, for example). If I'm not learning while I'm creating, I will eventually lose interest.
- I can do better According to my therapist, this is my core belief, an inner-mantra/motto which can be used for good or not-so-good. I try to use it more for kaizen than self-flagellation.
- I will make you think sideways My personal guarantee is to make you to see things in ways you've never looked at them before. I'm a practiced lateral thinker, a purposeful generalist, and a student of human nature.
- I see what's going on here I can distill things into their most salient, general parts. I like to edit, distill, and find the essence of ideas—and then connect them to other essences to see a bigger picture.
All of these features combine to make a creative consultant, and artist, a writer, a teacher, and a coach who can help you bring your ideas into the next dimension.
