Don't fight forces, use forces.

feel most miraculous when stacking rocks into fragile and improvisational forms.

 

Communicating through mass and gravity awakens sensations within me often overlooked and ignored.

 

Each attempt at balancing a stone sculpture gifts an opportunity to transform belief into knowing.

 

Hundreds of sculptures and thousands of conversations have proven that precariously balanced rocks provoke a sense of wonder, joy and disbelief.

feel energized transforming ideas into action.

 

Each new venture presents fun and fertile ground for improvisational problem solving and outside the box thinking. Every new project is an opportunity to connect dots and synchronize resources for the delight of others. 

Having worked in small startups, large corporations, public education and sole proprietorships, I understand first hand the immense value an entrepreneurial mindset and skillset can bring to all contexts.

bio

Hi, I'm Brandon Lane. I'm an entrepreneur, artist and educator. I value time as the ultimate currency and invest my energy, effort and enthusiasm with care. I live frugally and invest prudently to maintain sole custody over my solvent and sovereign self. I enjoy balancing rocks, making art, improvisational problem solving, launching businesses, nuanced conversation, contact with nature and optimistic people. Major influences include Walt Whitman, Buckminster Fuller and my own direct experience.

A mix of quick wit, bullshit and verifiable fact, Brandon Lane makes the perfect podcast guest.
