The power of filmed-media to influence societies positively through engaging and memorable entertainment. Utilizing my skills, intuition, and experience to meaningfully consult brands and people.
I'm inspired by individuals and companies who possess an elevated level of awareness and are able to translate that elegantly into their messaging, branding, and actions. One of my clients is a start-up non profit called 1 GIANT MIND. The organization's tagline is "The World's Largest Experiment" and it aims to inspire simultaneous mass meditation events for the purpose of scientific research on its potential collective effect. Projects such as this are intriguing because they are relatively new territory and the approach is based on a carefully orchestrated strategy that is objective and open to the world to participate. Any idea which has the opportunity to recalibrate humankind's compass in the right direction...is an idea worth spreading.
Power of the media and communication to influence positively.
Strong intuition and ability to forecast trends, events, and outcomes.
My first TED event in Edinburgh was the perfect intersection of my life-long desire to visit Scotland and experience TED first hand.
