About Jeffrey Davis
I'm a wonder-tracker, a writer, a question-scratcher, a creativity consultant, a business owner and entrepreneur, a happy papa for my daughter, a content lover and dream-partner to my wife, a workshop facilitator, and speaker.
I work with writers (from NYT bestsellers to first-timers), artists, entrepreneurs, micro-business owners, and schools hungry to change the way creativity happens. I travel to the Bahamas, Taos, Greece, Woodstock, and elsewhere to help people create optimally in this one wild life.
I'm interested in systems and habits and states of mind-heart-imagination that help creative innovators flourish alone and in collaboration. I'm interested in the untried paths, too - how the body's intentional movement and respiration affect our creative productivity, how idleness is productive, and more.
And I want it all to be authentic. To me, that means meaningful, genuine, connected to what matters and to one another, and coming from a source of one's own authority (not the authority of conventional wisdom or the status quo).

The gist is this: At day’s end, name three highlights from your day. The rules: […]
“When we are lost in darkness and see a distant glimmer of light, who does not dream of a thatched cottage or, to go more deeply still into legend, of a hermit’s hut?” – Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space Welcome to the Hut. Pardon the rough edges. I’m committed to building it post by […]
