Introduction The thing I am most passionate about is innovation. Where do creative, valuable ideas come from is a question that has held me enraptured for years. I went to MIT to study this question formally under such greats as Eric von Hippel. While at MIT I also helped found the MIT Innovation Club. I am using this blog to share my thoughts and experiences. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on innovation as well.
