A vocal advocate, I fight on behalf of those for whom our systems oppress. I believe we all have an obligation to fight injustice with every breath.
I help people and organizations not only think outside the box, but broadcast their innovative ideas from on top of the box – then take the box apart to make a whole new kind of box.
Managing complex organization change is a passion of mine. I help organizations think about, plan, deploy, and evaluate change processes.
I start businesses. A serial entrepreneur since starting my first business at age 10, I cannot help but see opportunity everywhere.
I am a social enterprise scholar, having researched and practiced the blending of financial and social value creating enterprises for the past three+ years.
