Strategist, researcher, designer, tinkerer, provocateur, muse.

I believe genius is everywhere and in everyone. I believe in listening, leaning in, and showing up. I believe play is vital to our future, and that everyone brings something to the table.

These days most of my energy goes toward international development and social innovation.

I work with instigators, fresh thinkers, social innovators and positive deviants. I help people who do good work do it better. I facilitate, design, produce, clarify, deepen, and organize ideas and initiatives.

The best work is done in collaboration and I draw on a wide network of future-forward thinkers with expertise in design, strategy, organizational effectiveness, international development and evaluation.

I thrive when exploring how we can use play, participation, people-centered development, design thinking, innovation, power, creativity and storytelling for positive impact.

I have been instrumental in founding a number of social startups including Global Community Development, and be Waste Wise. You can also find me at Good Thinking, Picture Impact, and See Beautiful Everyday.
