Writer, Speaker, Consultant

Photo_1I am a writer, journalist,  professional speaker, and management consultant living in the Pacific Northwest.

My work has appeared in Newsweek, Marie Claire, NPR, RISK!, Longreads, Public Radio International, The League of Ordinary Gentlemen, Yahoo! News, and The Moth story slam. I’m currently a regular contributor for The Daily Beast and Editor-in-Chief for the online magazine Ordinary Times.

Along with the fabulous Maud Kelly (no relation), I am also the co-creator of The Golden Mean, a radio show and podcast that combines journalism, first-person story telling, and short fiction to explore the different and seemingly intractable sides of difficult, controversial, litmus-test topics. Season One of The Golden Mean is scheduled to premiere in the summer of 2016.


If you’d like to get a better sense of my writing, you can do so here.

If you’d like to get a taste of my public speaking, you’ll want to go here.

If you’d like to learn more about my corporate consulting and training, you’ll find what you need to know here.

And if you want to just leap into the archives without any kind of map, then by all means leap away!
