An idea worth spreading
VISUAL literacy may become as important as literacy in the future. The re-uptake of our native visual abilities is one of the best things we can do in service to learning and solving global, sticky problems.
I'm passionate about
Visual literacy, storytelling, subatomic reality, how the mind learns, survival strategies for getting through life and the development of higher E.Q.
Talk to me about
Emotional intelligence, whole-brain learning, perception vs. reality, the definition of sanity and your dog.
People don't know I'm good at
Because I don't suffer from an overdose of humility, most people know what I'm good at. The only exception: singing.
My TED story
My company was invited to participate as visual thinkers and graphic facilitators at TED 2009, TEDActive 2011 and TED Global 2011 and I was a speaker at Long Beach in 2011. I and was thrilled to be there, of course, and it was simultaneously the most nerve-wracking experience of all time.
