How do you define creativity and apply it in your career? I never think about what creativity is, I just am. Creativity isn’t a tool that I pull out when I think I need it. It’s inherent in my attitude and the way I navigate the world.
Where do you find your best creative inspiration? On an airplane, when I’m off to explore my curiosity about the world. Its quiet space, when I can just be with me and shut everything else off. It helps that I can’t connect to WIFI on board!
What’s the one creative advice or tip you wish you’d known as a young person? Trust yourself.
Who would you like to hear speak at CreativeMornings?Barack Obama and Patch Adams
How would you describe what you do in a single sentence to a stranger? I turn the city into an open-air museum.
Where was the last place you travelled? In the last week I’ve been to the University of Washington to do a presentation for the department of Landscape Architecture, then I went to San Francisco for the opening of the new SFMOMA and the world premiere concert of a Dan Visconti composition, and then I flew to Winnipeg to tour of the Canadian Museum of Human Rights.
