My friend, Ekpe, says we are all musicians. A heart beats to a rhythm inside each of us. In the same way, I believe we are all artists.

You can find art in everything we do – breathe, create, parent, react.

I believe there is creativity in finding connections. In making meaning, in seeing metaphors, in feeling rhythm, in noticing patterns, in solving problems.

There is art at the heart of nature. There is art at the heart of doing work you love.


“I like to think of myself as an artist, and my life is my greatest work of art.”

Shakti Gawain

While I can’t say Art is my middle name, there is Art in the middle of my name.

There is art in me. There is art in you.

Let’s start something.
