I'm nomadic at my core, but happily, I've found a place to kick up my heels in Austin. I'm passionate about helping people connect the dots and make sense of their universe, as a friend, mentor, marketer, and creative problem solver. I was 100% sold on CreativeMornings the minute I set foot in a talk, and I've been an organizer ever since. You can find me leading CMFieldTrips around Austin.

As I get older, I start thinking how much [fiddling] enriches my life and what a key component it is in my happiness.
Zealously pursue small delights and diversions, especially little artistic ones.
You have an innate ability to connect.
Nothing, absolutely nothing, can replace face-to-face communication.
The worst punishment, besides death, is solitary confinement.
I believe in connecting. We all do it. We all need it. And, we don't get enough of it.
Sometimes, to predict the future, you have to kind of look in the past.
There's no line item on a balance sheet for 'give a damn,' but it's the most valuable thing you've got in the business.

Be bold, be respectful, be kind and be happy.
The things that made you weird as a kid make you great today. But only if you put it in your work.
It's my turn to raise my hand and roll up my sleeve and say: How can I help?
It's the 'why' that sparks the revolution.
As we become adults the pressure to be normal, to conform, to fit into that square body, to fit into that square cubicle mounts.
Another key to "The revolution is me" - you are not for everyone.
