Superstar

Professionally, I'm a Futurist & Director of Client Success. Personally, I'm a craft beer lover, a whiskey tester, live comedy viewer, superhero fanatic, adventure seeker and have a (un)healthy obsession with Harry Potter - visiting the Warner Bros. Studio in London England to see the Harry Potter film set was a mind-blowing and unforgettable experience.

What's your favorite accomplishment?
Presenting on Trend Hunter's Future Festival World Summit stage. Speaking to thousands of fascinating, creative, innovators.
How do you define cool?
Different. Abstract. Random.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Consistent exploration. Talking to everyone!
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Write it, then read it in someone elses shoes (sometimes literally) but, if you're not into it, no one else will be either.
How do you reset to be creative?
For me, recharging either consists of a jog, or a solid sleep. Step back, breath, take a minute for myself, and I'm good to go.
What inspires or excites you?
People. Simple as that.
