“If I had to express in one word what makes their personalities different from others, it’s complexity. They show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated. They contain contradictory extremes; instead of being an ‘individual,’ each of them is a ‘multitude.’”

– Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi


Currently, I am developing a solution called Quantified Mood to help minimize employee stress and anxiety (and manage depression) in the workplace. This is continuation of research I started more than a half-decade ago which resulted in a (now-defunct) psychometric mobile application called Happy | Not Happy.

Previously, I have worked in water conservation in California, distributed renewable energy for a European wind technology company, technology journalism for a British publication, as the Director of Brainstorming & Creativity for Hunter & Bard, and a slew of other cross-industry jobs and titles. I have also privately consulted for dozens of companies and individuals, from artists to politicians to journalists to executives, in a problem-solving capacity.


I am currently based in New York. I lived for 5.5 years in Los Angeles and 8 years between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
