I help groups of smart people working on meaningful problems collaborate effectively to maximize their impact.

My methods are tailored to each client, and combine approaches that are designed to enhance team creativity, draw out the collective wisdom of the group, and test ideas to maximize learning. This ensures that we create solutions that are innovative and sustainable in the long run.

I am an expert in fishery systems, but my talents for facilitation, systems thinking, and strategy development can help teams working on a variety of social and environmental impact initiatives.

I believe almost any problem can be solved by getting the right people involved in a well-designed participatory process of inquiry, big thinking, and adaptive learning. Hire me to design and facilitate a great planning process, stakeholder workshop, or interdisciplinary  learning experience.

Based in sunny Santa Cruz, California, but will travel anywhere with a beach.
