I’m slightly more introverted than extroverted.
I love figuring out how the world works.
I draw when I talk and I speak with my hands.

I am a writer, open water swimmer, designer-entrepreneur, and urban nerd. My mission is to find and capture insights from everyday, extraordinary living and share them with others. I write about the psychology of navigating the professional world, the millennial generation, the ever-changing work landscape, staying motivated, and current entrepreneurial, business, management, and teamwork strategies.Stories and ideas are my forte. I write from both personal experience (the failures and successes) and I write to share the stories, research, and ideas of other brilliant people. This blog started as a column about making the transition to the professional world, figuring stuff out, and finding out what’s important for you and your career. It has evolved into a blog on business, generating ideas, entrepreneurship, management, design, and more. This is sometimes an advice column – on the days when I think I might have something valuable to share. Other times, it’s just an exploration into life, living and being. Join me for the ride.
Current endeavors, projects and quirks:
I have an obsession with streets and awesome streetscapes (those urban to rural realms that we navigate every single day to get from one point to another). Some of my current personal goals are to walk, run or bike every street in San Francisco, to develop a website about landscape and urbanism and to write and publish my first (fiction or nonfiction) book.
Some of my life goals are to swim across the San Francisco Bay solo, do a half-ironman, to run a full marathon, to learn how to Salsa dance, to write short stories and fiction books, and have a family. Oh, and be awesome. To see the list in progress, check out my life list.
My background is both right- and left-brained. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology & Biology (where I cultivated my love of statistics, graphs, science and technical research, among other things). In graduate school, I studied the art of graphic and landscape design. In both places I wrote prodigiously. Writing – and sharing ideas with the world – is one of my favorite things to do.
