I like complex issues like transportation, education, and food systems. I think politicians should have a methodology for problem solving. I also like media and entertainment, and have an unhealthy interest in marketing (everybody's got a vice.) I heart Evernote, Google Docs, and "KS" as knowledge sharing is called at IDEO. I try to be involved, advocate, instigate. Prefer workshops to presentations. And there's a lot in this world that makes me #facepalm, but there's also a lot that makes me smile.
