Blue Jay Way is where I publish my thoughts and musings on management, design, technology, and life. I’m into creating things – be it products, businesses, art, and relationships. Living and working in Silicon Valley makes this a lot easier. I spend my free time parenting, dreaming up new businesses (occasionally breathing life into them), building and designing new things, flying airplanes, volunteering in non profits, and helping budding entrepreneurs.
My extraordinary wife Danielle found her calling in sexology; there’s never a dull moment with her. She and her amazing partner Celeste run a successful coaching and therapy business – more about them here.
