This is more about where I come from, and what I’m interested in. For my concise CV see my LinkedIn profile.
I’ve cycled between providing organizational support and programming, writing, and creative research practices since I was a teenager, growing up in the Philadelphia area. I specialize in seeing the connections between different interests and cultures and helping them connect to each other for mutual benefit. As a bridge-builder, I have integrated into many types of communities and industries – from investment banking to construction, physics departments to spiritual communities and the hospitality industry. My writing, research, and organizing has evolved from an unhindered thirst for understanding the world and how humans relate to each other, with all of their attachments and fumblings.
My education in art and art history is a basis for this bridge-building, as like a garden with healthy, biodiverse soil, understanding artistic practices provides the richest ground for exploring the relationships of these many disciplines in society – and human experience – as a whole. Since 1997, I’ve also practiced meditation and formally studied the ancient traditions of Buddhism, which provides a helpful framework for understanding these various disciplines as they relate to human nature and the fundamental elements of the world we perceive.
With this background I am able to help organizations and industries communicate with clarity and inspiration with their customers (or employees) and the public about who they are, and how they bring the future of this world to a better place. Whether this is through scientific research, product and technology development, or educational leadership, I am able to bring my insight into broad cultural trends and specific industries to inform how companies share their work and grow with their audiences. In doing so I hope to keep building bridges that counteract the polarizing tendancies of our current social relations.
