I help people focus on what matters most...
My ultra-short bio...
As a ghostwriter, I help thought leaders focus their insights into easily digestible nuggets. As a photographer, I use images to remind others of the power of being present. As a speaker and moderator, I keep large groups of people focused on insights they will actually use.
P.S. There's a longer bio at the bottom of this column.
My photos are the result of being mindful and paying attention. I started taking them as an alternative to meditation, because I found it challenging to sit still.
Using the simplest possible materials, lighting, and cameras, I managed to accomplish two goals simultaneously:
- Calm my mind
- Demonstrate that beauty and complexity surround us, if only we stop to pay attention
Psst! Want to buy a work of art?
Using a process called dye sublimation, we reproduce my photographs onto aluminum. Sublimation is the process of going from a solid to a gas, back to a solid - skipping the liquid state.
The result are large (up to 48" x 96") archival images that will last over 60 years without fading. Each is glossy and bold, with vibrant colors and rich, deep blacks.
Think big. Really big.
Fill a conference room or an entire floor with these images. Use completely different ones or stick with subtle variations on the same theme.
I will work with you to select the ideal images for your needs, and to produce images in precisely the size that works best for your needs.
My "artist's statement"
Intuitive leaps require that you open yourself to new possibilities. You must move past logic and make room for an utterly new thought.
For me, the first step in this process is to start paying attention to details that I normally miss. Over a decade ago, I started taking photographs as a means of distracting my conscious brain and slowing down enough to notice what happened when light and movement intersected.
I discovered a world of infinite possibilities, one in which the phrase "anything is possible" becomes true.
Innovation and creativity do not require someone else's permission. They do not require that you have a certain level of education or a title above a certain level. You don't have to raise millions in venture capital (although you might). They simply require that you exercise your curiosity and remain determined to follow wherever it leads you.
The more I open myself to new possibilities, the more energy and delight comes my way. I hope the same is true for you.
