My work engages rhetorical, psychological, and behavioral strategies.
These strategies operate within particular cultural niches. Generally these cultural niches for me include:
-interpersonal & analytical discourses,
-particular communities & societies,
-arts & media, and
-particular personal microcosms.
Specifically I am interested in how we human beings "compose our world(s)" in relation to
mortality & human life
secularity & spirituality
conceptions of information organization, reproduction, & growth, and
My central efforts seek to understand, negotiate, and facilitate what I see as individual and collective struggles for survival, well-being, and inspiration in an uncertain, complex universe.
I do this through observing, experiencing, listening, talking, watching, reading, writing, consulting, and coaching.
Action may lead to ideas. Ideas may lead to action. In the middle of all this, we feel the moment.
