A message from the Universe, or God… you choose 🙂

We are at a fascinating time in human evolution. A time where we have practiced our processes of control, manipulation, subjugation, oppression, separation, violence, and fear/hatred/resentment of superficial concepts of ‘the other’ to exhaustion.

This blazing, raging inferno of separation that has been burning for the last 8000 years is dying out, and will soon enough be nothing more than coals.

But even smoldering embers can be reignited given fuel.

A 400 year cycle within the cycle is also coming to to a close.

This blink of an eye in…


On November 21, 2019, I connected to my interpretation of my higher-self in a MASSIVE enlightenment experience… it was a Thursday Afternoon.

One month later, after 2.5 weeks of thoughts, ideas, information, and inspiration flooding out of me, I had completed the framework for what would become my new book, Radical Enlightenment: My Guy on the 9th Floor.

This is the story of my enlightenment experience, a little background on what led me up to the experience, and an introduction of who the book is for.

We need to know where we are in order to objectively move forward in life.

Your subconscious mind is incredibly powerful.

Conservative estimates put the processing capacity of our subconscious minds* at around 500,000x more powerful than our conscious minds…. and it really runs the show around 95%-98% of the time in our waking life.

Our subconscious mind includes things like our autonomic functions (heartbeat, digestion, breathing) and it also includes things like our internal reactions, our thoughts, and even our emotions.

Our subconscious is constantly writing programs in real-time as we experience life and, whenever we feel prickly or are in a reactive state, our…


I had a great conversation with my neighbor about ‘Black Rules’ and this video is a cognitive meditation around the practice, the energetic origins of Inequality, and that change is possible if we are all individually responsible enough to hold up the mirror and take the first step to change internally first.

“Freedom is just privilege extended unless enjoyed by one and all.”

What tools, exercises, and practices are you cultivating during this unprecedented global event to carry with you on your journey in life? Photo by Tegan Mierle on Unsplash.

Preface — Before I get to what I mean by the title, please let’s all practice social distancing and self-isolation if governmental regulations have not yet been deployed in your area. That is the only way to slow down the spread and limit the impact of this pandemic as much as possible.

For the majority of us, on a global scale, this viral pandemic will be a temporary event. It will be something that we experienced, but that probably won’t have a long term impact on our day to day lives. For some of us, this viral pandemic will be…

Disclaimer: This is a (satirical) look at the website of a candidate for the position of President of the United States from an experiential standpoint. This analysis is not meant to side with either party or be used as a political tool.

Oh, the website of Donald Trump… where do we begin? A few weeks ago @nicholastenhue did a light heuristic evaluation of Hillary Clinton’s campaign site, and I threw my hat in the ring to take on The Donald’s website.

Lets get started, shall we?


TL:DR The best products are created when everyone on a team is empowered to think (and act) like an owner.

It’s been documented that a user/design-centered approach to problem solving is an effective business tool…to the tune of companies that have embraced the approach outperforming the S&P Index by 228% over the last 10 years.

But how does an organization get from where they are…to there? How can a company move from a siloed, task-driven, product-centered mentality to a collective, goal-driven, user/design-centered business approach?

It begins with Vision, Leadership, and Ownership.

Ownership needs to start from the top-down to make it bottom-up .

In successful teams, everyone has a voice, and everyone…


TL;DR Adopting an Experience Strategy mindset and taking the time to create a vision statement for your product or service can create top and bottom line growth for your organization.

Building in the process of defining a user- or customer-centered experience vision is one of the most important cultural shifts in business strategy that any organization can undertake. It can break down department barriers, create more unified organizations, and get everyone on the same page with a clear strategy and vision that can be shared at every level.

Unfortunately, as we all know, cultural change isn’t easy. Personalities and agendas…


TL:DR In nature as in the design process, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Integrating an Atomic (Modular) Design methodology into your design/dev process can improve team collaboration, create more efficient production cycles, and reduces design and development costs.

Carl Sagan may have said it best in his seminal PBS series Cosmos, “The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together.”

Really think about that for a second. Our amazing planet with all the spectacular expressions of life can be distilled down to…
