"Quicksand" Problem-Solver

I am a(n):

#entrepreneur #pathfinder #Gordian-Knot-Slicer #foundation-problem-solver #frontier-problem-solver #deeptech-solver #spatialthinker #autodidact #polymath Synaestheticist

I know a lot about:

Systems thinking Design thinking Uncovering the deep nature of a problem Ecological finance Historical problem investigating & solving 'First principles' problem-solving Ecosystems mapping Systems gaming Sparking butterfly effects

I am the go-to for:

Untangling, unpacking, & solving highly-costly hidden "quicksand" problems using an unusual ability to sort through vast constellations of clues. And then working with you to create preventative, practical solutions.

I can help you:

Why me:

A first principles problem-solver who is a spatial thinker, solving the hardest problems in business, finance, engineering, and fundamental scientific logic. Ever since correcting my father's tax arithmetic at age five. Creating practical solution options for hard problems - this is what I do.

I know a lot about ecosystems mapping and want to help people who are untangling "quicksand" problems that slow down our ability to make a better world. For example: I helped a surgeon solve an internal procedure problem in about 30minutes over a coffee. I help best by re-framing the nature of the problem. You could say that I become all the parts of the problem to help solve it - see

Note re: For long conversations, a skype call is better. Then I can use the typing chat function to make sure we are on the same page.

Note re: Video. This is about thinking bigger than what the world wants us to think. Thinking big becomes freedom to build a better now. It is a practice that can become mastery.

I am available for:



My story:

Tenacity - I don't give up.

CEO friends call me 'supercomputer'. My skill is being able to sort through vast constellations of clues. Imagine standing in a fog, noticing every droplet, sorting out all of the patterns & then finding the one droplet that triggers change to everything. That's me.

My mission:

Together, we can make a practical better future now.

My greatest accomplishments:


Networking into the White House. Networking to within two steps of the Presidency of a major Asian country. Creating neuroscience from scratch and then being enough of a threat to get crushed by status quo top dogs.

When doing a venture, I'm all in. Other projects fall to the wayside.


Overcoming boyhood fear of water: Becoming an expert whitewater kayaker running top rivers.
Overcoming boyhood fear of enclosed spaces: Becoming an amateur caver.

The best experience of my life? Coaching a physically disabled boy to roll a whitewater kayak on his own, after national athletes and coaches couldn't find a way. It was incredible seeing that kid grin up to his dad!

C-school: With SpeechEasy, won 1st Place tie in class vote for best 1-minute pitch.

Obtaining SpeechEasy anti-stuttering earpiece. Boosting fluency to 98%!

Long before getting SpeechEasy, making profit (!) every month doing door-to-door sales during the slushy grey days of a Southern Ontario winter.

My goals:

To grow my company into a successful business.

To found a charitable organization to help stutterers.

To found scholarships to acknowledge the champions who inspired me to seek an uplifting life.

Fun facts:

I have been known to drink a bottle of Maple Syrup in an hour (or less!)
