      I’m a proud polymath, for better and for worse. I follow curiosity and intuition (magic) wherever it leads. I hope to make meaningful contributions across seemingly unrelated fields—literature, farming, dance—but I’m definitely not motivated by “success” in the traditional sense. Recognition and approval are great, but nowhere near as important as, say, inner peace.

      I love putting my mind/body/spirit into completely different circumstances (challenging/easy, collaborative/solo, physical/mental) as a way to tap into intellectual flow states that are truly creative. I live to surprise myself. I work hard to think outside the box, against the grain, and to do stuff that’s never been done. It’s fun. And fun matters.

      We could use more polymaths in the world!

      The internet encourages this sort of learning more than ever… now.. if only we can pay attention long enough.
