About Me

I’m an intuitive creative facilitator (a role I’ve come to call a “Friend of Ideas”). What does that mean? I work with people and companies to recognize and use the powerful notion that ideas and creativity are more than just the products or results they generate—they’re an essential medium for human connection, meaning and growth.

For the last ten years, I’ve developed tools and ways to understand and apply this truth, most recently as the creative director and co-creator of The Wonderment, a nonprofit digital platform and global community where thousands of kids from over 25 countries have taken creative action to connect and impact communities all over the world.

I’m also the creator/cofounder of The Idea Idea, an ongoing experimental workshop series that has brought people together in places from General Assembly to SXSW to explore the purpose and nature of shared ideas. 

Along the way, my various work has been featured by the New York Times, PBS, the Webbys, Slate and Vogue.

I love to write, speak and connect ideas and people.
