"All your life, You were only waiting for this moment to arise."
I am a graduate student in Organizational Psychology generally, and my research interests are in creativity and leadership specifically. I've lived many places, but California has a special place in my heart. Hopefully I'll make it back there someday! I have diverse talents and interests, from my career as a professional ballroom dancer to my brief stint as a carriage driver (yes, carriage as in horse and carriage). I heard a talk by IDEO at a conference a couple years ago, and have been inspired ever since. So, when I found out about OpenIDEO, how could I pass up the chance to get involved?
As evidenced by some of the inspirations already provided, an essential element for vibrant cities/communities is pedestrians. A Walk Score is a mechanism that will tell you how walkable any given area is.
Hi AL!! It's been SOOOO long since I've been able to participate on the website (wow, Ph.D. programs have a demanding first couple of years!) but I've very much enjoyed collaborating with you in the past. I'm so happy to see you selected as a featured ideator! I'm looking to write up a concept for the Bupa challenge over Thanksgiving break, hopefully I'll see you there :)
Hello OpenIDEO :-) I did not hear the news, but that's exciting! Thanks for notifying me. I checked out the forums, but I'm not sure how to weigh in (just comment?), or in what way I can/should contribute. I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes out of the Make-a-thon!!
