Personal statement: I am a generalist, one of
a small group who were influenced by Buckminster Fuller to expand our
interests without boundaries, to resist societal pressures to specialize,
and to devote our lives to the betterment of humanity through
comprehensive science and design initiatives. While we fit with
difficulty into normal jobs, we are sometimes recognized for the
tremendous value we bring through insight and overview, and by integrating
and cross-pollinating between different fields of human endeavor. It has
been natural for me to be active and productive in fields as diverse as
geology and medicine, technoecology and neuroscience, product design and
the physics of information. I'm like a stem cell, fitting in, helping,
and adding value wherever I show up. I feel tremendously fortunate
to find myself at this major crossroads of global innovation, Stanford and
Silicon Valley in the early 2000s.
