I’m not good with straight lines. As a child, I didn’t care to color within them, as a teenager I wasn’t able to drive within them, and as an adult my career path has completely avoided them. In college I studied post-modern political philosophy, and since then I've been a concert promoter, a digital marketer, an entrepreneur, and now an innovation coach. The only constant thread has been a passion for new ideas and creating communities around them. This website is an attempt to begin developing a new community of like-minded individuals, interested in the intersection of innovation, technology, and culture.
Change has never been this fast before and will never be this slow again, as Graeme Wood said. Companies which are serious about keeping up need a reliable and proven framework to innovate, which is exactly what I provide through my work with the LUMA Institute.
A company's culture is simply the sum total of its behaviors over time. I specialize in helping clients create indigenous cultures of innovation so that they only need to rely on their own team members, rather than external third parties, to generate innovative solutions.
Digital strategy is in some ways a redundant phrase, since any strategy that doesn't include digital has no chance of success. I spent six years running my own digital strategy agency helping SMEs find new customers through digital channels.
