About

Most essentially I am a thinker and pilgrim who loves communicating ideas and connecting with people. My life has been greatly enriched by the people I’ve met, and it is my core belief that engaging more richly with other people is really what the world needs right now.

That’s lead me down many paths, such as being a church minister, social entrepreneur, event producer, designer, TV producer and creative director amongst other things.

I’ve spent the last four years going through a personal transition, and have been working on my theory of engagement that I first started back in 2009.
