Several months ago we received an email from a gentleman named Jeff Finley. Jeff is a multi-talented guy, a lover of design, a native Ohioan, and the founder of a rockin' music and art festival.
He had decided to reach out to us after reading the Brains on Fire Book, which he generously said that he felt was "written just for him." That email turned in to several emails, and those messages into a phone call. After hearing his story about founding a gathering called Weapons of Mass Creation and how the book influenced his work, we asked Jeff if he'd like to write a blog post for us. We tossed around several ideas, and landed on the idea that I would interview him. We talk about the book, but we also get to know a little bit more about Jeff, his journey of learning how to breakdance, his favorite ice-cream, and why he would multiply himself if he could.
If you want to reach out to him, head on over to his website, http://www.jefffinley.org, and take a look around.
