I am passionate about supporting people & organizations to fulfill their highest potential and to meaningfully contribute to the well-being of all life and a thriving planet Earth. With over 25 years experience facilitating transformational learning and action, I work in settings ranging from university classrooms and corporations to ecovillages and urban gardens, across North America, Europe, and Asia. The Pacific Northwest of North America is my home base. I founded the Cultural Catalyst Network and am deeply grateful to collaborate with that network of wholehearted change makers.
