Currently, the best description of me:

“it is that neo-generalists are curious, responsive and connective. They learn constantly; hunger for new knowledge, in fact. They effortlessly adapt to context, specializing and generalizing, leading and following. They constantly seek to connect and combine people and ideas in new and innovative ways, addressing big issues, maximizing opportunities”


“They are curious and adventurous people. Like Ishmael in Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, they have an itch for new lands, a desire to see with fresh eyes. The neo-generalist is often a cultural and social explorer who has traveled, lived or worked in countries outside his or her native environment. In our conversations with people, we discovered that many are ferocious readers who read more than one book at a time. It is a way to enhance the reading experience and feed their cross-pollination gene. As part of their sense-making process, they generously share ideas and knowledge in conversations, writing or through curation. As a consequence, they engage in social interactions from which they learn, challenge conventional thinking and enrich the lives of others.”
