I am passionate about creativity, innnovation, and entrepreneurship. As the executive director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program (STVP), the director of the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter), and a faculty member at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (d.school) at Stanford University School of Engineering, I get a chance to work with students and faculty who embrace the idea that entrepreneurs and innovators do more than is imaginable with less than seems possible.
I earned my Ph.D. from Stanford University Medical School in Neuroscience. Since then I have worked as a management consultant, a multimedia producer, and the founder of a multimedia company. I have written 16 books and educational games. They include The Epicurean Laboratory and Incredible Edible Science, published by Scientific American; and a series of 12 games for children called Games for Your Brain, published by Chronicle Books. My newest books, published by HarperCollins are What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 (2009), and inGenius: A Crash Course on Creativity (2012).
I am deeply honored to have received several awards for my work, including the Gordon Prize from the National Academy of Engineering, the National Olympus Innovation Award, and the Stanford Tau Beta Pi Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching.
