"Now’s the time to act. We’re not a people that just look and watch and wait to see what happens. We’re Americans. We make things happen. We’re tougher than these times, we are bigger than the smallness of our politics, we are patriots and we are pioneers, and innovators and entrepreneurs who through individual effort and through a common commitment to one another will build an economy that is once again the engine and the envy of the world. We will write our own destiny."

These are some meditations on culture, art, politics, tech and the beautiful struggle. I am a tinkerer, flâneur, social commentator, curator of big ideas, design-curious techie, aspiring entrepreneur and philanthropist, and DC native.
