Want my monthly thought capsule?

Creativity Consultant

I help people expand their cognitive toolkits. Get in touch.

Be creative

I can teach you language for fostering creativity and generating new types of ideas. I've exposed some of these thoughts through my generative art website. If I can't show you something new in 60 minutes you'll go into a record book.

Be aware

Insight into your mind will help you cope with adversity, align you with your values, and expand your capacity to manifest. I've developed useful lenses and consciousness practices towards expediently moving forwards.

Be kind

I select my clients based on their desire to do good in the world. No one has a perfect record, but you must have a genuine intention to foster compassion and give what you can to the world. Exceptionally selfless clients get sessions for free.

I've come a long way

Software Engineer

I've worked at Asana.com, consulted for several AI startups, and was most recently at Google working on performance tooling for custom AI hardware. I like making tools to empower people.

Game Designer

In 2014 my good friend Benjamin and I and produced a board game called Block Party. We raised funds, produced it, sold copies, and donated hundreds to math teachers and programs. I also continue to carry a set around and create new games with it.


In 2013 I wrote a novel exploring the future of art, technology, and relationships. Every now and then I'll draw stylistic portraits. I've also made some mobile puzzle games, but they're no longer supported. I also play a very obscure Chinese zither.


I'd love to hear from you: george@hoqqanen.com
