Jim Watson has sat on the edge of the Grand Canyon under a full moon,
at the top of a Mayan pyramid during a power blackout and on the side
of an Egyptian pyramid. He once met Lyndon Johnson in a bathroom and he
owns Ringo Starr’s autograph. Watson coined the word “neurobics” and has
invented a flag-waving hat, a dog-leash belt, backgammon-in-the-round,
TravelPants and several pieces of furniture.
Watson also helped organize the AIGA Oklahoma chapter and served on
its board for six years. He has 27 years experience teaching design and
creative problem-solving at four universities: Oklahoma State
University, University of Oklahoma, University of Central Oklahoma and
UPAEP in Puebla, Mexico.
According to Watson, he is a minimalist. He loves to travel. Bryce
Canyon in Utah is his favorite natural site, Walt Disney World his
favorite man-made one. He likes to drink coffee. He likes to write. He
likes to invent. He thinks teachers and medical support staff don’t get
paid enough. He doesn’t like telemarketing spiels or laugh tracks on
sitcoms. He is a dog lover. He likes dining with friends. He loves New
York City. He also loves sudoku and crossword puzzles and solving mind
games. He is fascinated by word origins, likes to read the newspaper,
loves to teach and to push minds. Most of all, he thinks life is a hoot.
