A purple car is a rare & beautiful sight
A purple car spurs the imagination, it delights, it stands out. When my co-workers playfully called me a “purple car” back in the 1990′s, the username stuck. Throughout my career in research, technology, and communications, I’ve always strived to reveal the hidden benefits in every circumstance. I’ve tried to encourage and motivate. Now I write to amuse, delight, and steer us toward creative action in our lives.
PurpleCar: Find your creative drive
Whether you drive at a Sunday leisurely pace or at a breathless racing clip, you are welcome to explore the roads my fellow “purplecar cabbies” and I have ventured down. Please join the road rally in the comments section under each post. We’d like to hear about what inspires you and how you think we all could live and work more creatively.
What drives PurpleCar
Building on my Masters Degree in Educational Psychology, I like to study Psychology of Media, Behavioral Economics, and creativity in this world of emerging technology and online social networking. With background experience in both technology and Psychology, I try to offer a unique yet helpful perspective on what drives human decision-making. I also read and review books, and occasionally interview the authors on my podcast PurpleCarPark. On Twitter and other my social networks, I try to keep the engines running on discussions and ignite some new thinking about the effects of modern-day media on our lives.
