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.
