📚 Books
Read Elastic by Leonard Mlodinow, a theoretical physicist who explores how the mind discards old ideas and adopts new ones. The brain engages in “elastic thinking” that helps us survive. When you’re solving a problem, ask yourself “what doesn’t go together?” Try grouping ideas, products, systems – and you may stumble upon something truly unique.

🎵 Music

Listen to Time Outtakes by the Dave Brubeck Quartet. These are previously unreleased takes from the original 1959 sessions. These “alternative takes” will let you hear these familiar songs anew. I’m grateful to have played a small role in this project.
