Using Art to Balance Life

I’ve enjoyed a long, fulfilling career in Silicon Valley. It’s an
incredibly diverse, constantly changing place and state of mind. It’s
easy to be consumed here in a world where creating disruption is your
job. It see it everywhere as I walk the city (my favorite past-time). I
notice the first-time tourists who see San Francisco through fresh eyes
contrasted with the emerging technology class glued to their latest
device. Watching them, I ask myself, do they miss the wonder in the eyes
of newcomers around them? Can we maintain curiosity, and see the world
anew every day?
As an Industry Analyst at Altimeter Group,
my job now is to understand and council others in technology
disruption. But I need a constant: a foundation that puts these
ceaseless changes in perspective. How can you understand change without
understanding the starting point? For me that starts with family of
course, but also, seeing and expressing the undeniable beauty around me
every day. So, I paint and sketch. Every day. Maybe it’s a
“left brain, right brain” thing, but for me, creating something of
lasting beauty in a world of ephemeral apps, devices and marketing
campaigns gives me the foundation I need to notice. And noticing—being
aware—is the first step in understanding the world as it is and can be.
