I suck at business as usual.
But I'm really good at change for the better.
Once, when I was deciding whether to finish a PhD in medieval literature, a very wise professor described me as a 'constellator' - he meant that, deep down, I'd hate thinking about just one problem for three years. Instead, I'm always drawing the next connection, getting excited about how we can connect the old with the new. I listened, gave up the PhD, and forged a career out of constellating.
I love leading teams, using technology to connect cool humans, and big to-do lists in neat handwriting.
