Jim Davies is a professor in the Institute of Cognitive Science at Carleton University. Director of the Science of Imagination Laboratory, he explores processes of visualization in humans and machines and specializes in artificial intelligence, analogy, problem-solving, and the psychology of art, religion, and creativity. His work has shown how people use visual thinking to solve problems, and how they visualize imagined situations and worlds.
In his spare time, he is a published poet, an internationally-produced playwright, and a professional painter, calligrapher, and swing dancer.

This is also true of painting and drawing, but is generally not true of choreography, screenwriting, writing scripts for plays, stage or film directing, and so on. When you write you can make it just the way you want it, and are only limited by your own abilities. It's also something you can do for the rest of your life, unlike, say, mountain biking.(less)
