The best piece of praise I got from a client was “you’re intuitive, talented and wise.”
It was humbling and heart-swelling. Providing a wider frame of reference that sparks another person’s creativity, which inevitably expands their own contribution, is a juicy thrill ride
that drives everything I do.
When I’m not learning how to build something better, I’m usually learning about something else:
+ hemp textile production in the US
+ post-growth and prosperity-without-growth economics
+ leaning far enough to scrape the footpegs turning
my motorcycle at 5 mph
If you’re dying to know more, I used to be a classical pianist, but while finishing my Master’s
degree I kept skipping practicing piano to visit the Arms & Armor Room
at the Art Institute of Chicago’s museum.
I also sometimes wish I was a blues-playing veterinarian anthropologist, and I’m often listening to ’70s and ’90s rock.
