“I started my life with a single absolute: that the world was mine to shape in the image of my highest values and never to be given up to a lesser standard, no matter how long or hard the struggle.” - Atlas Shrugged
I have spent my adult life and most of my childhood engrossed in imagining the future and the potentials that drive it. As someone with atypical curiosity, I found myself sailing with Captain Nemo, escaping the ordinary and discovering the wonders of the world.
By high school, I realized that the formal education system was more a pipe designed to feed the “norm” than a place to build up curiosity. This was a lesson I carried with me throughout life. Therefore, I chose a path that will always challenge me and the status quo of my environment, but also be governed by a unique side effect – enabling me to look back into the present. I've built my career on things I knew that I didn't know.
I always took on assignments I had never done before, as it was the only way to learn and develop. I am constantly pushing myself to explore new fields, tools, and methods that would redefine my vantage point on any given challenge.
My mission in life is to encourage society to question the narratives through which we experience our world. And to use that mass of critical thinking to enable conversations that will elicit the change that will better prepare humanity for the enormous challenges ahead. The focus of my work and research is to provide strategic insights with a focus on illustrating areas where technology, policy, and societal partnerships will be necessary to respond to constant changes in our world.
I address the fundamental building blocks of growth and prosperity – vision, collaboration, and structure. My sessions are intended to help you better understand your pain points, eliminate or design friction, and strengthen your resilience and sustainability abilities across the organization and individually.
My keynotes help you shine a spotlight on your ability to THINK, and more importantly, ACT differently.
