After ten years "by the board" in Taiwan, I'm now a digital nomad - travelling the world and making things up as I go along. There's plenty of work to do online and in meatspace, so I'm as busy as I want to be.
Usually spending my summers in Bulgaria recently, and loving it here.

An idea worth spreading
the idea you don't have to wait for someone else to solve your problems
I'm passionate about
Better ways of doing things. Everything. I want to live in a clean, low-threat environment, which means changing the way the world does just about everything. Start with language, our primary tool.
Talk to me about
1. The relationship between The Art of War, Leonardo daVinci, and improvised comedy.
3. International living & Lifestyle design
4. Pretty much anything else, especially sailing.
People don't know I'm good at
thinking of answers to strange questions.
My TED story
I was a huge fan of TED for a long time, and eventually became a TEDx curator in Taiwan. After three events, the magic started to wear off and the phrase "opportunity cost" started to feature in conversations about what's next.
After leaving Taiwan to travel again, someone said to me one day "I'm bored with TED talks, they're all the same..." and I realised that I need to spend more time doing things than hearing about things.
Still love you guys, but don't have as much time for you as I once did!
