In my professional life, I am highly passionate about 3 areas: Learning, Entrepreneurship, and Performing.
“I am a revolutionary teacher (Chief Learner) who is committed to change and evolution. I have been at the frontier of that change for years, pushing for a new way to graduate that is based around competencies and inquiry rather than courses and outcomes in British Columbia, Canada. I am at the cutting edge of learning and I can help any institution become a learning machine. In my opinion, it is the greatest advantage for any organization today — those who can learn fastest will win. I know how.
I am also an entrepreneur. I have unlimited energy. I cannot be bound by conventional rules. I go insane. Instead, I need to be pushing my limits daily. I have found that entrepreneurship is my path. I have started companies. Worked in numerous teams. Wholeheartedly believe in Scrum, Agile and Lean principles. I will never stop coming up with ideas and testing markets — it is just too much fun. I love playing the markets, doing research, analysis, and trading. It is the best game on Earth.
Lastly, I am a performing artist. I have to do it. I just have to. I love it with my heart and soul. It makes me happy. I will always adapt myself to perform, because as an artist, why would I ever retire? I have practiced creativity in a professional setting for decades. I could pursue it as a full time occupation. Cirque du Soleil has invited me to clown auditions. Having been in the industry and having many professional performing friends, I have discovered that the lifestyle does not appeal to me. Being on the road is tough. I love Vancouver Island too much and I don’t really want to leave. You can see me doing my solo show in the inner harbor of Victoria (top 5 busker pitch in the world). When there are 3 cruise ships in town, it is quite the show!”
