Serial entrepreneur, spatial thinker, autodidact, polymath

Synthesizing practical solutions to hard problems. My particular skill is an unusual ability to intellectually sort through vast constellations of clues. Started thinking about patterns ~age 3. Corrected my father’s tax arithmetic at age 5. Figured out nuclear fusion ignition sequence in a week in adult high school physics whilst prepping for industrial design school (our instructor, PhD physics, locking it in the school safe).

My skills were trapped behind a severe stutter for many years; now minimized through use of the SpeechEasy anti-stuttering earpiece which boosts my fluency to ~98% if the conditions are right. Got crushed in my previous major venture: developing novel avenue of neuroscience for audio medtech, to help allied veterans overcome Combat PTSD and suicidal thoughts. My current one is private sector datatech. I’m terrible at stand-up pitching. And do it anyways. And business development calls.

Practical Future Now

Constantly learning. Looking for ways to ‘invent the future now’. Known for imaginative “wraparound” design thinking—possessing a talent for solving difficult/wicked/systems mysteries by synthesizing hybrid solutions; and for repeatedly being the first to notice tiny clues. These become levers, that when pulled, ripple operational efficiencies through complex networks/ecosystems – reinvigorating systems – unlocking cascading roadblocks.
