Foundations of my Blog

Welcome to my blog!

I am interested in aesthetics, the beauty in all things. This blog attempts to track the evolution of my thinking. I gravitate intuitively to the interesting, the unusual and the novel. Shape, form, texture, shade, compelling ideas so to speak.

Ultimately, something worthy of becoming a cultural artifact. Something of historical importance.

This blog is a primary tool for me to organize, compile an make sense of an increasingly complex world.

This is a photograph I took over 20 years ago in Egypt. Valley of the Kings to be specific. I have always been fascinated by Egyptian hieroglyphics. Clearly this one has stood the test of time.

Enjoy!

About Andre

I am currently the Leader, Knowledge Architecture at The Next Institute. If I were to chose only 5 words to describe myself I would pick; Designer, Explorer, Ecologist, Developer and Alchemist.

As an experienced entrepreneur, and business leader, I have successfully acquired, developed, operated, and sold a number of businesses in the oil and gas, manufacturing, export, and knowledge industries. I have held numerous leadership positions throughout my career and consider myself a continuous and intense student of leadership.

My intention is to continue to explore new ideas, possibilities and create new solutions to complex and sometimes intractable challenges as I migrate from business leader, to astute observer, commentator and thought leader to Artist. I am extremely interested in doing my part to leave the world far better than I found it.

Creativity and innovation are a couple of my key drivers and I am of the firm belief that better is always possible.
