THE FUTURISTIC MYSTIC
I am an ever-evolving, human-centered futurist driven by innovation and global impact. My purpose is to disrupt the status quo and push the boundaries of what’s possible, ultimately redefining the human experience through the powerful vehicles of venture, design, art, science, technology, culture, and conscious capital.
As a founding partner at New Mindfulness, I work at the intersection of venture design and early-stage investing across a span of different industries, markets, and emerging technologies. Our investment model is not about searching for existing companies to fund, but about creating new ventures 18+ months ahead of market, so my work as an “investor-designer” involves inventing our portfolio by designing iconic, forward-thinking companies with novel products, brands, and experiences that serve a deep human need.
I apply my interdisciplinary understanding of human nature and gift of claircognizance to my work as a venture designer and early-stage investor. As an ivy-league trained researcher and strategist, I’ve spent years studying the human sciences, which has fueled my work in trend forecasting, market intelligence, strategic foresight, innovation strategy, brand, product, and experience design, new business model development, and experiential marketing of disruptive products and solutions.
My full-stack venture design background and extraordinary life journey have both given me a unique investment lens that empowers my team to build and fund paradigm-shifting projects that create a more sustainable, equitable, and fulfilling future for us all.
