  1. How do you define creativity and apply it in your career? Creativity is not a skill; it’s a mindset. I apply it every day as a leader to try to stay porous and gutsy. Porous to let each day seep in so that I don’t ignore a spark that could ignite a big new idea. And gutsy so that when I smell an opportunity, I don’t analyze it to death – I trust my creativity instinct and go for it.
  2. Where do you find your best creative inspiration? Listening to or reading other creative people reflect about their creative process.
  3. What’s the one creative advice or tip you wish you’d known as a young person? You don’t need to wait for a big stretch of uninterrupted time to be creative. It’s not about the outcome. It’s the being. It’s seeing the world through creative eyes that is the true rush.
  4. Who would you like to hear speak at CreativeMornings? Douglas Copeland, Dave Eggers and Pete McCormack
  5. What has been one of your biggest Aha! moments in life? “The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
  6. What practices, rituals or habits contribute to your creative work? I write a poem every day. Usually at night before I go to sleep. Nothing arcane, just a short download of something I noticed that day. It keeps my noticing muscle alive.



Ticket lottery registration will open August 21th, 2015

Due to popularity causing tickets to sell out too quickly, we use a waitlist as a registration system (please register only once) from which we randomly award tickets using a lottery system. Lucky ticket winners will be informed by email. If you cannot use your ticket, please inform us ASAP so we can allocate the ticket to individuals on waitlist. Remaining applicants will remain on the waitlist and informed if a ticket becomes available. Anyone who hasn’t checked in by 8:45am on morning of the event forfeits their ticket.
