I like to think of myself as an HBAPer, Explorer, Leader, Digital Transformation & Technology Consultant, Problem Solver, Entrepreneur, Designer, Data Analyst, Collaborator, Educator, Student, Maker, Artist, and a Toy Maker. I believe that the meaning of life is to Love and to Learn. I love my family and friends, and I love learning. I learn something new every day. I am perpetually curious, and I want to know everything.
One of my favorite things to do is bringing products and services to market. Design Thinking. Coming up with new ideas. Collaborating on a team. Going from sketch to finished product. Solving problems. Building things. Fixing things. Breaking things. Sometimes... even fixing things until they are broken. Working Agile. Continuously improving. And I'll say it again... being on a great team. There is something so delightful about having the privilege of being on a great team.
Career wise, I am a Consultant/Entrepreneur/Startup Investor with over 20 years of experience in Technology for Media & Entertainment. I have worked in product development, design, post production, advertising, animation, VFX, technology, R&D, IT, gaming, and interactive entertainment. I used to be an instructor in the MFA Computer Art Department at the School of Visual Arts for 19 years when I stepped down to travel the world.
In other words... I love creative problem solving and making things.
If you are looking for someone to help you solve some complicated creative, technical, or business problems, then I would really love to hear from you! Please email me!
My most recent endeavor was graduating "With Distinction" from the Harvard Business Analytics Program. While at HBAP I was elected to be a Cohort Representative, and I led the creation of three highly influential projects at the program:
HBAP | OVERTIME - is a culture-shifting series of after-class meetups that enables students to continue the conversation after the Live Session and grow their personal network.
HBAP | STARTUPS - is a student led club whose mission is to help HBAPers build businesses. We cover topics ranging from Design Thinking and Ideation, Business Model Design, Finance, to VC... and basically every aspect of building a startup.
HBAP | REVIEW - is an 8-week "post-graduation course" designed to review the entire HBAP Curriculum from the perspective of the C-Suite.
Side Note: I had a lot of fun working on the Untwist Toy. I wanted to make something "fun" so I just started sketching. One thing led to another; design, research, production, marketing, and manufacturing. Also, I am super excited to have been awarded U.S Design Patent #D843488.
Oh, and if you are still reading... my "Coin Series" are some of my favorite things. I really love these.
