Who is Elliott?

I’m a trouble maker.  I consume, create, spread, and execute crazy ideas.  I like to “mix things up.”  I dislike the status quo–especially when it’s lame.  Some call me a change agent.  Others just call me crazy.

Paying Gig

I run marketing and sales for a nanotechnology start up company.


Ideas, linguistics, philosophy, American politics, geopolitics, history, psychology, economics, marketing, negotiation, leadership, persuasion, debate, biology, chemistry, entrepreneurship, and innovation (generally speaking)

People I like

Entrepreneurs, scientists, thinkers, writers, philanthropists, soldiers, debaters, do-ers, risk takers, change agents, crazies and lunatics.

Favorite Things to read

Wall Street Journal, The Economist, New York Times, Fast Company, National Geographic, Inc. Magazine, Traveler, business books, blogs, biographies, classic fiction, and short stories.  (I really like Hemingway.)

My Current Obsession

Big History taught by David Christian.  It’s a history of everything.  It’s gotten me a lot more interested in cosmology, astrology, biology, and chemistry.

    Hi! I’m teaching Ben Franklin’s 13 Virtues to my alternative high schoolers so I happened upon your blog. Hemingway is a favorite of mine, as well.
