Introduction MFA in Painting because I wanted to learn how to make art from scratch. MBA in business because I wanted to learn how to build businesses forwards and backwards. Was a team leader in a key production role at a billion dollar magazine for 5 years. Then photographed for Hearst Magazines, The Wall Street Journal, MTV Networks, Comedy Central, Sony Entertainment, McSweeney's, and many others. Made a couple of bad films and one good one that almost nobody has seen. While working on my MBA did a survey of arts and creative management programs and discovered that they are mostly plain old management programs dumbed down for artists and creatives. Asked the question, "Is there something to creative management and strategy that could be in fact stronger and more powerful than the existing management models?" The answer is an enthusiastic "YES". Designed a curriculum that integrates design thinking with emergent strategy. Now to put it to work building beautiful businesses. Restlessly and relentlessly creative, with a strategic approach and a clear understanding of what it takes to be profitable.
