Do you consider yourself a 'successful thinker'? Why?

Yes and many ways I am, thinking outside the box, traveling, making things, talking myself into raises. But other times, I wish for more, think I could present myself better, ponder more, have more complex ideas if I didn't rush forward.

What is your Passion?

Creating things, particularly tangible solutions to household problems.

What is your 'Why'?

Why? Why not?

What are some of your favorite Books?

The Glass Castle; 2001: A Space Odyssey; Full Catastrophe Living

What is your 'Story'?

Grew up in Vermont; travelled in Europe after high school, learned French cuisine, spent 10 years at it; went to college at untraditional UC Santa Cruz, discovered economics; 15 years of litigation consulting is enough of working with lawyers. Seek more creative, tangible occupation like business design at IDEO or food product development/finance in food or innovation company.


I can read, write, and count--and also cook. After 15 years in litigation consulting, I’m looking to combine my backgrounds in economic research, qualitative and quantitative analysis, and classical French cuisine into a more creative role.
