SK: What is a Renaissance Human?

BC: The term renaissance man has been used to describe someone who is not only skilled in business, but has also embraced the artistic side of their nature and achieved success.

The term polymath was originally used to describe great thinkers of the Renaissance and the Enlightenment who excelled at several fields in science and the arts. A basic tenet of Renaissance humanism is that humans are limitless in their capacity for development. Therefore people should embrace all knowledge and develop their capacities as fully as possible. This was expressed in the term ‘Renaissance man’ which is often applied to the gifted people of that age who sought to develop their abilities in all areas of accomplishment: intellectual, artistic, social and physical.’ Today Renaissance Humans come from any gender, nationality, generation, and talent sets. They are the embodiment of a new deeper knowledge of humanity and its perils than at any time in our planet’s history.

SK: You also started a new project Vybrato. Please tell us more about your vision and how each one of us can contribute to your project?

The musical term vibrato refers to a rapid, slight variation in pitch in singing or playing certain stringed instruments, such as violin or guitar as well as wind instruments such as woodwinds, oboes, etc. The effect of vibrato on sound is to produce a stronger or richer tone. In simple terms, vibrato makes sound richer.

I chose the name Vybrato for my new business when I heard it from a creative marketing and business catalyst named Tyler Bel. Being a musician since I was 8, and a singer since I was 17, I loved the name and I wanted it. I even loved the logo Tyler designed. The only problem was that I didn’t know what the heck Vybrato would actually do. To further confuse things, it sort of sounded like a character in X-Men.

Before I even had a business plan or business model, I told someone half tongue-in-cheek, that Vybrato’s goal is to “raise the vibration of the planet.” I was well aware how California-woowoo-hottub-Burning Man this sounded. But I knew that’s what my life has been about for the past 30 years: doing everything I could to facilitate the evolution of individuals and of humanity, to find ways to help people find peace in their hearts so we can have peace in the world.
