lost in thought
with Natalie Nixon, PhD

Director of The Strategic Design MBA Program, Philadelphia University

I'm inspired by Sade; weeding (it's amazing the thoughts that come to mind while digging through dirt!); and the ocean.

When I'm having a creative block, I swim!

My favorite ad campaign Dove's Real Beauty Sketches... not an ad in a traditional sense but definitely took on a life of its own. Very human!

Favorite color deep orange... and deep pink!

Best advice I ever received never underestimate the value of 'please' and 'thank you' - from my dad.

The very next thing on my to do list is pack for Finland.

A least once, everyone should rappel off the side of a mountain!

The best way to unwind after a long day is a lavender scented bubble bath.

If I had a one year sabbatical, I would go back to the Maldives, swim every day in the Indian Ocean, eat super healthy, and write a work of fiction.

The most overused word in meetings today is innovative.
At the moment, I'm obsessed with House of Cards!!!!!!!!

I'd define my personal style as sultry-athletic… and nothing some red lipstick can't help!

I'm happiest when I am relaxing with my husband, John.

I wish I could tell jokes without spoiling the ending or getting the order mixed up!

I'm proud that I taught myself how to do a flip turn to add into my swimming laps by watching YouTube videos.

The last stamp on my passport Monaco and the UK.

The next stamp on my passport Finland

When I look back on my career I am really happy. I gave most everything I had an itch for a try- except for professional beach volley ball. That was in my 20's. But that's ok. I hope my step-daughter Sydney gives that a try!

I still hope to love getting older.
