Jim Lennox's painting in Hunlock Creek, PA

Speaking personally

I’m Jeff, a native Pennsylvanian fascinated by trees and people given a good ratio of the two. This site documents my process of living and working artfully.

I write often. Some is online here. Start with Nobody Falls Halfway.

I play drums and tabla and spend time between New York and Pennsylvania to pursue this.

I practice Zen Buddhism at the Endless Mountain Zendo in Stillwater, PA.

A few of my favorite things

  • Psychology, especially family systems theory
  • Tabla, drums, minimalism
  • Complexity, complex adaptive systems

Speaking professionally

Today I am nestled near Penn State where I am preparing for graduate school in information sciences. I am employed by the Wellbeing and Health Innovation Lab where I’m working on digital phenotyping of bipolar disorder.

Previously, I led the digital transformation of Smiles4Keeps Pediatric Dentistry, one of the country’s largest and highest-quality closely-held Medicaid groups. With minimal supervision and years of close mentorship by its owner, I stewarded the group from paper operations into a fully-integrated, centralized operating environment.
