Creativity.
Our Elemental Human Gift

Let me be your guide...

Everyday Creativity has proven to influence:

2020 brought a Tsunami of change that caught most of us with our pants down, and without toilet paper!

Creativity seems like an unlikely solution to our anxiety about our future. However, creativity is the foundation for adapting to the future with joy and strength. I’ll prove it.

What to Expect

I challenge people to reconnect with their inherent creativity, even if they can’t sing “Happy Birthday”. Drawing from my experience in stand-up comedy, I love to entertain while watching paradigms shift. Kids can have fun learning and so can you. I might even sing a song or play my guitar (don’t get excited, I'm not every good).

I’m a veterinarian with ADHD, trained in medicine, steeped in science and data, with an inner performer who loves to create and play. My science background compels me to use research and data to support my claims. My ADHD compels me to keep it interesting and relevant. No back-rubs, or fingerpaints - not that there’s anything wrong with that.

About Me

Trained as a veterinarian and researcher, I love evidence. I delight in using data to convince staunch skeptics that everyone is creative. I love a new challenge; stand-up comedy, guitar, rock climbing, getting my kids to eat vegetables, surfing, meditation retreats with sniper rifles. You know, the usual stuff. A late diagnosis of ADHD explains my deep distaste for irrelevant and pointless drivel. I’m a lot of fun at a party, an ideation meeting or a strategy session, but not so much at pointless meetings that go nowhere.

I live in Calgary, where my lectures go unheeded by my family. The dog listens, sometimes. My dream is to help others find the courage to take the unconventional actions that will take them one step closer to a regret-proof life.
