What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At work, and I love my work, I get to spend my time inventing,
leading research teams, and generally indulging my diversophile
instincts. This year, I'm working on reinventing education. Last
year it was smart personal assistant technology. Before that, next
gen email. If you spend time with me, there's a risk I'll talk
about all of this.
At home, I am a parent to two amazing kids and caregiver for my
wife. For a long while, my focus was entirely on getting a good
outcome to her extraordinary medical situation (long story there --
I'm happy to share details in person) and on fighting off homefront
Now that the craziness is settling down, I'm looking outwards
again. With my wife's encouragement, that includes dating. It also
means more sun, more music, more movement and more connection with
My idea of fun ranges from world travel (the only really good use
of money in my opinion) to trading stories, trying new food,
talking about ideas, fixing things, making things, climbing
simulated rock walls and trying activities that have been on my
fun-todo list for way too long.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Unwavering adherence to rules
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Happiness -- not mine specifically, but how it works for
How to transform things that are awful into things that aren't so
bad. These days: how to make a game out of recovering from stroke
and other neurological damage
Making the time to breathe freely, feel deeply, and connect with
people who love to be alive.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home being a fun Dad and a caregiver/companion for my wife. Or
else out with friends, recharging batteries.
