I became a Creative/Athlete in Residence at the Battery in 2018, and one of my first projects has been to launch the Battery Adventure Club with fellow Battery CiR and adventurer Noah Rainey. After a meetup at the Battery in May, we held our first group event on June 26, 2018 right here in Sausalito with a group of 20+ Battery members and guests kayaking under the full moon in Richardson Bay.
My article on “The Athletic Mind” was published in Issue 02 of the Battery‘s Candy magazine.
In October 2017 I hosted a panel discussion at the Battery with two of my favorite multi-sport athletes. We talked about what it means to be an athlete, creativity and sport, and began a conversation about bringing skills from one sport to another.
Daniela Moroz, two-time world-champion kiteboard racer, winner of the Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year in 2015 at age 15.
Simon Dominguez, marathon open water swimmer and subject of this film about his swim from the Golden Gate to the Farallones.
In January 2017 I led a workshop at The Battery entitled “Upgrade your decision-making”. My goal was to share some of my thinking about Athletics and Intuition in the form of a “Decide Nothing toolkit” – a few simple techniques that I use to help me stay in flow and make decisions intuitively. Some of the techniques that I shared are
- Move without hesitation
- See over the mountain
- Shake hands with monuments
- Check your messages
- Welcome the unfamiliar
- Roll the dice
This workshop was continuation of some events that I hosted in 2016 at the Battery and part of a series that I will be leading through the rest of 2017 on Athletics and Intuition.
