I'm passionate about making the world a better place to live. All of us are better off when any individual maximizes his or her health. I believe I can make at least a small impact here by celebrating, communicating and coordinating what creative thinkers are doing to improve the human condition.

Together we can move the quadruple dials of enhancing the patient's and clinician's experience while improving the health of a group of patients and lowering cost. That's my purpose - my "Why." "How" I do it is by supporting leaders and innovators. "What" I do is the podcasts, think tanks, thought partnering, and impact investing.
