about Me

I took the name Tesla Designs after studying the concepts of Nikola Tesla in graduate school. This site is not affiliated with the Tesla Car company. I started it as a web design firm and moved into writing about culture and technology. Why the use of sorcery sounding terms such as incantations to spells and others? Is this one of those witchcraft or a Wicca site? No, but if you know where I can get some good eye of newt or a stack of hovering tarot cards please let me know. The truth is the human mind needs to play. We need a break every now and then from hard logic. We need to do it without drugs and alcohol. Let me rephrase, I choose to do it without drugs or alcohol. I write short snippets and fantasy. It is fun to write with words that sound different. Think about how the word "rock" sounds versus "stone" (credit to Mary Oliver for the example). In truth I started it as an SEO experiment. I wanted to see how long it would take an article to propagate through the search engines and in between different platforms such as LinkedIn and Twitter. I watermarked my documents and put some tags in with the word incantations which was somewhat distinct and not often used. I could tell you the results but then I'd have to put a hex on you.

I tRy TO LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD

I have proof of it somewhere on my wall. What I know is that you are as good as you are today. A good pedigree and past performance does not guarantee you success. I write as a way to make sense of the changes I see happening in society. From technology taking the place of skills to the impact of social media on our kids, writing helps me understand how I interpret the world. I can create new worlds to live in and lift others up. I create incantations or verbal elixirs as I call them. One might allow me to tiptoe atop a picket fence, while another holds me in solace during times of strife. They give me the power to adapt to change. It can be hard place to live. I cut my own path and work to help others find theirs by abandoning judgement and comparison. Nature and solitude are my steady companions. Mental fortitude is my reward. You can connect with me on LinkedIn to see if I can help you find work. I work in science but I think like an artist and often see trends early. It took me years to figure out I learn using what I call exploratory learning. I guess this is one reason I like to listen and write, so I can help others discover and refine their innate talent.
