A little about myself...
In my professional journey I've had the privilege to work with some of the most innovative and successful organizations in the world. From the print pages of The Wall Street Journal to the embedded Adwords of Google, to the bootstrapped Silicon Valley startup world: I've had the chance to see innovation and entrepreneurship from more angles than most. I've directly managed and personally developed dozens of successful websites, email campaigns, quantitative investment programs, SEO initiatives and so much more.
The most inspiring and interesting people I know are passionate self-starters, collectors of knowledge and skill, lifelong students, and unapologetic expert generalists. That said, they share one thing in common: a distinct interest in predicting or modeling those things that determine our future. Science, politics, business may all be trying to do the same, but they are all also facing the challenges created by the increasingly complex nature of our world - particularly that of cross-disciplinary insight (or lack thereof). With the exponentially proliferating amount of data and increasingly specialized functions within industry, government, academia and elsewhere, we must remember that innovation requires us step back so that we may see the bigger picture.

Born and raised in Southern California as a first-generation Swedish-American I'm grateful to have had a multi-cultural, multi-lingual and well-rounded youth. I've humbly lived in 3 countries and traveled over 30. Having lived in rural Northern Sweden in a Village of 1200 people, to Los Angeles and the San Fransisco Bay Area, to Sucre Bolivia (the high-altitude original capital of Bolivia) I haven't lived a life of privilege but feel so all the same. I'm enormously grateful for the unprecedented opportunities that we enjoy in this time and age and I live to spend my time on energy on meaningful things that improve humanity, human health and happiness.
While I value humility, I've grown to learn the value of sharing one's story and I try to inspire others to wear their passion and tell their story as well. I cringe saying it but I've inherited the acronym MIMITW (The Most Interesting Man In The World) from more than one social circle. Here are a few interesting reasons why:
