Creative Catalyst and Starter of Meaningful things
An awesome place I've visited:
Paris. Turks & Caicos. Hawaii. I want to travel the world. I have major wanderlust.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Love Actually and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. I love love.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I'm a creative catalyst + starter of meaningful things. Raised in Chicago, moved to San Francisco, and now loving life in New York. I live for inspiring people to pursue their passions and act on their deepest ambitions. I'm currently the chief evangelist of The Domino Project, a new publishing venture founded by Seth Godin and powered by Amazon. I love life and I'm attracted to deep, energetic people who relish the journey.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
How the brain works, how we make decisions, ideas around how we pursue meaningful work. Anything on psychology, behavior, etc. I live for this stuff.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Trying too hard. Be yourself.
What I would bring to show and tell:
Photos I've taken. Ideas. Hugs.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
My crazy move from San Francisco to New York. Apparently I do a lot of "crazy" things.
I secretly want to be:
I'm exactly who I want to be right now.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Just perfectly themselves, all the time. I do not tolerate superficiality.
An infatuation of mine:
Starting things. Talking about desires, fears, passions...
