    Summary
    Proud alum of Pomona college, Stanford Graduate school of Education, and Stanford d.School. Hybrid Creativity and Innovation practitioner/coach + Learning designer and Educator. I strive to be a coach, a catalyst and a leader. I believe in the following: * Innovation happens in a space where failing forward is embraced and a culture of "Yes, and" prevails * Innovation is messy and does not happen in a vacuum * Creative confidence comes from trusting that the ideas you create have value, and having the freedom to take risks and fail * Everyone is capable of innovation and creativity. * Play, constraints and seeking diverse inspiration are all drivers of the creative process. * Culture change starts with mindsets. I am fascinated by the pedagogy of design and creativity and how to scale a culture of innovation, creativity and empowerment across organizations. My past projects have included building design/innovation cultures and teams in K-12 schools, non-profits and corporate organizations. My toolkit includes coaching, facilitated workshops, intensive bootcamps, and embedding with teams to model fast paced, human centered innovation approaches.

    Ben Grossman is a busy musician: improviser, studio musician, composer, noisemaker and audio provocateur. He works in many fields, having played on over 80 CDs, soundtracks for film and television, sound design for theatre, installations, work designed for radio transmission, and live performances spanning early medieval music to experimental electronica. Ben's tools of choice are electronics, percussion, and, especially, the hurdy gurdy (vielle à roue), a contemporary electro-acoustic string instrument with roots in the European middle ages. Through extended techniques, live-looping and processing, Ben seeks to use it as a physical interface into improvised sound creation, spontaneous composition and the exploration of acoustics, form and extended aesthetics. In 1997 Ben studied Turkish music in Istanbul and has done vielle workshops and lessons with Valentin Clastrier, Matthias Loibner, Maxou Heintzen and Simon Wascher as well as working on Deep Listening and improvisation with Anne Bourne. With an abiding interest in pushing the limits of his instruments and pushing the boundaries of whatever venue or medium in which he works, Ben's only solo CD, Macrophone was released in 2007 and features a unique two disc form for simultaneous, aleatoric playback.
