I'm nomadic at my core, but happily, I've found a place to kick up my heels. 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 checking people in at the monthly talks, or leading FieldTrips around Austin.

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.
F*ck it. We'll do it anyway.
Casey Gerald Purpose is the New Bottom Line
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.
It should be a tattoo. "The revolution is me." So we can constantly look at it. That's a mission statement right there.
Individually, in every moment that you can, be the source of somebody else’s happiness.
A sketch is like a question mark: "What do you think?" It almost doesn't matter what they think; it matters that you asked.
Celebrate other people's successes. It's good for your heart, it's good for your soul and it promotes general goodness.
