I am a futurist, academic and innovator. I write, speak and generally enjoy life. These days, I split my time between a number of adventures including full-time research at Mount Sinai School of Medicine at NYU (New York), Adjunct Faculty at Baylor College of Medicine (Houston) and Executive Director of the Texas Institute for Smart Health, where we work on innovations to change the way healthcare is delivered. My other activities include Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Innovation Science, Futurist and speaker on Innovation. I am currently working on a new book on innovation that will be published in the summer of 2013.
