Bringing my whole self to life.

One digital native’s struggle.

Technology for humans being.

Running the most important company on Earth.

One digital native’s struggle.

From the day I received these shiny, insidious tools to my first night without WiFi 10 years later, I operated under a hypnosis that stifled my development and watered down my potential.

The more my attention was pulled out of my body, the less connection I had with my intuition. This may be one of the bigger tragedies few acknowledge–that we are losing our ability to listen to what our body needs.

I can only imagine how much worse things would have been if I were born 10 years later. What if I had a fully loaded iPhone at age 11 instead of 21?

It has taken me four years and counting of experimenting with dozens of combinations of apps and new habits–not to mention expensive and esoteric transformative experiences–to crawl myself out of these addictions and set up my own systems for success. Now what if our tools were simply designed that way?

Technology for humans being.

When one is immersed in a screen, they aren’t experiencing the worlds around and within them, which offer lots of useful information.

With Siempo I felt very aligned in working on something I was both passionate about and seemed important for the world.

I realized that Siempo was the perfect platform with which to start working towards this vision, and tapped into a previously inaccessible confidence that I could lead the team effort.

Running the most important company on Earth.

In feeling a growing misalignment with my personal values from one early stage startup to another, I constantly questioned my place in the business world, and would repeatedly get into trouble for not conforming to the status quo.

If we can’t bring our whole selves to the office, then how can we perform to the best of our abilities and find meaning in our work?

It is becoming critical to be mindful of how who one is and what they value will manifest in the team and product they create, and to be sensitive to how these creations might harm others in ways that are sometimes impossible to predict but always possible to stop. To truly care about all one’s stakeholders, internal and external.

I can’t help but believe we have the resources, creativity and motivation to achieve a society that works for all; it’s just going to take many more of us to participate, and do so from a place of love rather than fear.
