It’s Bohemian | Travel I love sharing travel stories about my adventures around the world. I have been traveling all of my life, and finally took the time to do some extended travel in 2010. That adventure took me around
Living Life Without Walls | Life Coaching, Mindful Meditation, Personal and Professional Counseling It’s difficult to say where it began, but a search for freedom has been a theme in much of my history. I was born into conflict, and
I was a geneticist once; for most of the past decade I’ve been an internet professional, leveraging technology to enhance user experiences through customer centric product strategy. With extensive start-up experience my passion for emerging technologies and new media have drawn the attention of large brands seeking innovative marketing and customer experiences. Here is more about me; you can follow me if you’re so inclined; or you can interact with me if you dare. You can even explore the artistic side of me, or read about my exploration of the world, my musings on my human experience, and yes, I’m on Google+.
I am connected across the internet because I love information. Technology has made it so much easier to gather and share information, and people like me help bring usability to that technology. Right now it’s all about mobile (and tablet) compatibility; it was once about Web2.0 and social connectivity; I think very soon if not already, it’s about navigating the social and digital cloud.
People come to me for ideas. Applying principles and innovation to the areas of product management, internet marketing, and engagement optimization.
I find myself often dreaming up a new idea. I am passionate about life and as a result have many interests. It helps that I require little sleep – and I enjoy large quantities of sugar in its many wonderful forms – so I am also always on a question to better understand and create through new experiences.
I started out as a traveler when I was young. Though born as an American, I spent a lot of my younger years overseas. I travel often and travel light, and as I explore the world I find new ways of sharing it through images, video, and words.
I spent a week in the desert with Bedouins in Jordan, stayed on an island with 9 foot Monitor Lizards, eaten snakes and silk worms and fish eyes, swam with sharks, and enjoyed more beautiful beaches than most people. I’ve also spent more nights sleeping under an airport bench than most people.
As I travel I consult for different companies in the areas of management, marketing, process, user flow, design, customer service, and user experience. I also build websites from time to time, manage social marketing campaigns, write, speak, and occasionally sell catchy products.
Along the way I hope to make a difference in the lives of those I meet. I have high expectations for what life has to offer and I’m always out to seek how I might be able to push my limits, hoping to create extraordinary moments and experiences.
