When the old rules of identity meet the shock of the new.

I’m an author, researcher, and podcaster. I study the cultural stories we tell ourselves about success, transformation, and the future. I’m fascinated with the way societies make epic breakthroughs, and what it means for everyday people.

Studying the culture, sharing what’s coming.

Pinpointing the places where the culture ripens is gritty, breathtaking work. What makes it worthwhile is explaining the undercurrents, so that people can navigate them. The data changes, but my aim remains true: help people face the future with a sense of hope and wonder.
