Hello Google+, it has been a while, but here is what I've been working quietly for the last 2 years.
 
B Corp for Public Safety

I remember actually talking to +Jason Barnett about this idea a few years back, and so it's really cool to see that he's launched this company, called Flarean, which builds special Internet of Things lighting devices that attach to lamp poles and help citizens in St. Paul know what to do with their cars in snow emergencies. Brilliant. And it's a +B Corporation. 
Rings of soft white light encircled lamp poles up and down a block of St. Paul’s Dayton Avenue, just off Lexington Parkway, one recent misty evening. Suddenly, all of the lights on the even side of…

With all the media talking about how the Texas Tribune did this magical thing live streaming the Wendy Davis filibuster, I felt I needed to remind our friends these waters are well explored.

This is my current tech fixation. The video is a touch cheesy, but this large-scale 3D printing is blowing my mind. Who wants to start a company to do this work? If I were to start another company, this might it.

Where do I sign up?
Degenerative Disc Disease affects 30 million Americans, and 3D printing could be the cure they're looking for.

Story
Introduction

I’m an entrepreneur who has started and run two successful businesses and is always looking for innovative ideas that will change the world and improve people’s lives. With a background in the arts, technology, media and social organizing, I use those areas of expertise to forge new paths and opportunities.

I’m a person who can take seemly unrelated ideas and connect the dots to build, reorganize or find new paths for business innovation. Finding and building new concepts is what drives me. I haven’t been afraid to try something I’ve never done and I’ve been very successful in making these changes.

In the coming months, if all goes well, I’ll be announcing the launch of a technology startup. The project to date has been a fun one. We’ve built a working, yet still buggy, prototype that has the ability to save lives across the world. (Did I mention I like to attempt big ideas?) We’re starting small, with the most simple version for our first few prototypes. I can’t wait to share it with the world and hope it turns out to be something you all will not only want, but see the intrinsic value in for our communities.
