He has written articles, participated in panel discussions, and presented at seminars for business associations and educational institutions. He could probably perform an emergency appendectomy if he wasn't so afraid of hospitals.

"Design and language are like music. Communicating complex thoughts with an economy of tones can be a difficult challenge, but it can be much more effective than playing a flashy yet empty torrent of notes."
