Javy Wong Galindo, M. Eng., is a self-proclaimed creative dimwit who is working real hard to become better. This former electrical engineer and performance arts teacher has over 13 years of experience providing creative consultation. He is available for lectures, workshops, and interviews. Contact him through his website, www.Thinking-Differently.com. Javy's interests in thinking differently began the first time he answered a question incorrectly on a test, which occurred early and often in his childhood. As a youth, he developed a passion for storytelling, creative writing, sketch comedy, and performed in various instrumental music ensembles. This affinity for creative endeavors naturally led him to a decade long career working in a cubicle as an electrical engineer. He holds both a master's and bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from UC San Diego with minors in philosophy and music theory. While working as an engineer for companies such as Motorola and Northrop Grumman, Javy participated in various corporate creativity workshops. At the same time, he continued to feed his creative hungers by being an educator for several southern California non-profit youth arts organizations and as a San Diego high school music instructor. In 2007, Javy took a hiatus from his engineering career to pursue an academic investigation of the creative process at JFK University in Pleasant Hill. When he's not speaking on creativity, Javy can be found singing at a club, performing bad comedy improv, writing an unfunny comedy sketch, or running poorly on an uphill trail.
