Since 16 I have had 48 jobs in the past 52 years: licensed architect, interior designer, graphics and signage designer, freelance cartoonist and writer, college professor at three different universities since 1980:

1) Univ of Ga-Art Dept and School of Environmental Design (4 years),
2) Columbus State University – Leadership Development (15 years),
3) Drexel University Goodwin College – Creative Thinking online courses about the History of Creativity and Creativity Tools.

My travels have taken me to 49 of the 50 USA states and 85 countries where I have spoken and worked in most of them attempting to S.P.R.E.A.D. creative thinking throughout entire workplaces from individuals to teams to departments to entire organizations.

Since 1978 I have presented at over 150 creativity conferences on 5 continents: CPSI for 34 years, ACRE in South Africa for 15 years. This year I presented at three programs in Brazil in August for the first time making it 6 continents and 85 countries.

M.I.N.D. Design thinking style model/instruments based upon my doctoral dissertation study into the matching of teaching and learning styles based upon thinking styles to teach creative thinking skills and tools. Over 400,000 people have completed a MD in the past 30 years.
