Investigating the genius and experience of breakthrough work…

As a researcher, I investigate:

  • the experience of creativity
  • the ecosystem of learning, creativity, and culture
  • the paradox of ordinary genius
  • and how successful creatives complete the cycle of inspiration to presentation.

During my doctoral work in adult transformative and creative learning, I developed a model for successfully navigating all kinds of creative work.

I began by digging into Einstein's experience with developing the special and general theories of relativity. As my work progressed, I found that Einstein's process and experience synced with historical and contemporary creatives doing discovery, invention, entrepreneurship, artistry, transformation, storytelling--all kinds of original maker, deep investigation, curious puttering, and creative change work.

That means your creative projects and desires, and mine, are in fine company.
