Great ideas spark great growth.

I ignite game-changing creative ideas for leading individuals and organizations world-wide. I’m a trained philosopher and keynote speaker who has spent 25 years connecting the dots between trends, innovation and growth, with healthy doses of economics, technology and art. As a photographer, I illustrate perspectives that develop new opportunities for companies and individuals to pursue growth. I believe our work must be noble, add value, and do good. I’ve worn many hats – salesperson to CEO – and travelled to 49 U.S. states, 16 countries and worked in multiple languages. I share the connections between history, science, commerce and culture that spark renaissances and change lives.
