Creative Being

A poet, performer and producer, I believe in the power of the arts to help us see the world and ourselves in new ways.

My one person show, In Chaos I Trust, was recently featured in the 2016 Soulo Theatre Festival in Toronto, Canada

Master Coach

Coaching is both a supportive personal relationship and a powerful creative process. It has no other goal but your success and satisfaction.

I’m a professionally trained coach who’s spent the past twenty years working with people from all walks of life, all over the world.


Conversations for Power and Possibility

This is a hopeful book. It’s about finding new sources of power when you feel powerless and new possibilities when you feel boxed in.

I wonder whether music, art, drama and movement might be the keys to teaching us about our feelings. I’m curious about the role they might play in our emotional education – even in the workplace from which they have been largely excluded.

Bragging Rights
