An idea worth spreading

One Million Bones - a large-scale are installation project designed to increase conversation and apply political pressure to stop genocide. Changing what's ugly in the world through the beauty of art. Found it at TEDx, and I'm sold, and working to make it happen!

I'm passionate about

Helping entrepreneurs, micro businesses with minimal capital, start up new companies successfully. I'm an implementation guy - I'm the guy on the ground who DOES things.

Talk to me about

Economic empowerment. Large-scale art installations. Non-zero sum in cultural evolution. Social entrepreneurship.

My TED story

I listened to the Dan Gilbert talk on happiness, and it changed my life. It introduced me to TED, for one thing, but also just made me realize that acceptable happiness can be synthesized, so no matter what happens just try to be happy, and you will.
TED has fascinated me, introducing me to incredible new technologies and ideas about the world and myself. It needs to go mainstream.
