I am what we in the design world would know as the one who knows a lot about a lot of things and has studied a ton, but doesn't have that kick-ass high profile company name on his cv.
I am the one you call when the rest of your team is pumping out the same tired tropes. One of my biggest flaws is that I have to know the core concept of something, it's a gift and a curse for several reasons.

Did you know that in print it's easier to read serif because our eyes follow over the letters easier and see the whole word rather than the individual ones? Maybe... But the reason they used serif fonts in print (aside from being a generative form of handwriting) is because ink bleeds when you're pressing a thousand copies with manual typesetting, and you're not about to go re-print that whole damn thing again because the 'e' on line forty page one hundred and seven is a little smudged.
Or maybe you think to yourself regularly - 'huh, I wonder in what other ways we could generate understandable semiotics like the peace symbol in a similar fashion that they generated the shape from the naval flag waving for 'N'&'D' meaning nuclear disarmament'. - No? Just me?
I think a lot about a lot of things and I have a pretty good memory for the things I learn and the things I think about.
'You talk too much.'
'Get to the point.'
'It doesn't need to be that complicated.'
'How does that help?'
I hear you. I get it. And I can take my own shortcomings in stride. If you want to build what everybody else is building, then you just need another body to hold another pen.
My forté is answering the hard questions and making the bold innovative changes that at the point we sorely need. So if you're planning on moving mountains...
