I started this blog (and later, my facebook page) in 2010 because I loved musing, pondering, meandering through the wide ranging and quickly morphing subject of emerging tech and how it’s changing our world (changing us in the process): what’s happening out there, through the lens of sociology, anthropology, psychology, humanity – and business opportunities.
Hence “Decahedralist“: the name I gave to my strategy consulting firm, as the subject is complicated and has many facets.
Professionally I’m a “dot connector” delivering strategic thought leadership & innovative business solutions when disruptive technologies are transforming consumer behavior. In other words, I help businesses stay competitive when things are changing really quickly.
My professional career has included business, business and marketing strategy consulting, line management and entrepreneurship; I figure it out, vision it, then make it happen.
We all contain multitudes. In addition to a fascination with technology, I’m a lifelong avid artist and maker, often (but not always) combining my love of tech with creation.
Sometimes I’m completely about getting my hands dirty (particularly if there’s precious metal and an acetylene torch to play with) ; I’ve worked with some of the most ancient, manually intensive techniques out there. Sometimes it’s not; from graphic design to Cad, to high end 3d programs – I’m always tinkering, playing, experimenting and creating.
This intersection of art and technology – and being a very creative, visual person – means that Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality have a special place in my heart. I’m fascinated with where the technology will go, and what we’ll be able to experience with it. I’m proud to have been invited to speak at various tech conferences on the subject, both as an artist and a business person.
