How do you define cool?
To me, cool is confident and a little offbeat.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Find something so cool, weird or innovative you absolutely must share with someone else immediately.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
Discovering idea after idea is kind of like getting sucked into watching endless cat videos on YouTube... addictive and amazing.
What is your favorite trend?
I am really loving biomimicry and the emergence of non-standard architecture.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Write what you'd want to read.
How do you reset to be creative?
I recharge with good indie music, yoga or taking a walk.
What inspires or excites you?
The weird and the wonderful.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Some sort of hyper-sustainable transit to take you from continent to continent in a matter of minutes.
