Success and responsibility are inseparable. Let's build businesses that matter.
I started in the mail room of an ad agency then co-founded my own that was named by Fast Company Magazine as on of the 10 most innovative in the world. I've co-founded an organization that builds entrepreneurial ecosystem that is now an international model. I co-founded an international company advocating healthy eating that was also recognized by Fast Company as among the top-10 most innovative. None of this happened without the help of many, many people.
I partner with people to apply innovation in business design, communications, and product development. My life in the innovation laboratory of post-Katrina New Orleans has informed my work at the intersection of entrepreneurship and branding. I work to demonstrate that business must be practiced in a way that does not degrade people, communities or the natural environment. As an entrepreneur, investor or consultant, I help businesses committed to these principals become sustainable and achieve cultural influence.
I am committed to design thinking. More organizations should know how to apply innovation.
I am a ceo/writer/designer/strategist/planner/entrepreneur/mentor/teacher/student/husband/father/son/citizen—always curious about the world and eager to learn and grow.
