Can this count as my first appearance on stage at TED?
I couldn't think of a better way to kick off my new blog than showcasing the fact that I'm a nerd. I saw Myra Strober speak last December and in case you couldn’t hear in the video, I was in the back of the room tweeting up a storm because I couldn’t agree more with Myra about the large need to embrace learning to listen and engage with people outside of our area of specialization. Engaging diverse groups of people in discussions is the key to accessing the type of innovation that will produce world changing ideas and the practical insight to move those ideas forward. I'm sure I'll be writing more about Interdisciplinary Conversations, Challenging Habits of Thought by Myra H. Strober.

Some basics about me:
- I’m a dreamer
- Usually because I am very aware that I am for sure a nerd
- I love Silicon Valley, San Luis Obispo and Washington DC
- I think it's insane and awesome that my son has six local great grandparents
- I love all versions of awkward
- I read about palliative care in my free time
- I advocate for social media literacy not because social media is a revolution, but because it's a proponent of acceleration for movements I am passionate about
- I don’t find hospice depressing
- I think it is possible to change the world
