TL;DR: Creates the future, open to new clients and collaborators in reimagining the tomorrow of food and food experience. Food Futurist, Experimentalist, Experiential Designer, Alchemist, Artist, Scientist, Writer, Mover, Agriculturalist, Outsider, Inadvertant Thinker/Doer.

Many things are true. Lifelong global researcher, explorer, and experimentalist elucidating the ways we transform the environment around us and in turn the ways the environment transforms us at every scale, from the micro universe of a single cell to the largest scales of modified and natural landscapes and the invisible energies of narrative and movement. 

Research & Training processes: Seeking beauty in exploration without boundaries from synthetic biology, movement analysis, thermodynamics, charcoal/pastel portraiture, free verse poetry, essays, movement, installation art, photography, agriculture, immersive experiences, and speculative fictions. Biomedical/chemical engineering, soft condensed matter physics, molecular biology, epigenetics, tissue engineering, microfabrication, analytical chemistry, permaculture, regenerative agriculture, gastrophysics, strategic foresight, cartomancy, somatic movement, shambhala buddhism, judaica and mysticism.
