Areas of Interest

Foreword from the Author

As long as I can remember I’ve been interested in creating ideas that solve problems. New ideas, unique ideas, novel ideas. Some were definitely better than others, but I always had fun and people told me they liked what I created.

Today, I write about creativity, innovation and design thinking. I share experiences from my projects, I include references from my classrooms, and resources that help me do my job as an innovator.

Review the articles, find something of interest and dig in. If you ask a question, I’ll answer. If you share a comment, I’ll reply. If you want to talk we’ll schedule a call. You see, this is what I do for fun – I’m just looking for people who want to play.
