About me

In 1993 I walked away from a career in Construction Project Management to pursue a personal dream of helping others through housing. This led to an award-winning career as a social entrepreneur.

I’m a slightly irreverent, non conforming, contemporary elder with future focus and a strong bent to make a dent in today’s complex world. I love coaching and training effective leaders and their teams. I’ve been blessed with a knack for unlocking potential, empowering others, and a bit too much energy.

I’ve enjoyed success as a Founder and CEO of a high performing organization in the affordable housing and health care field. I’m a doer, thinker, reader, writer and total life enthusiast who has trouble acting my age.

I love doing hard things well to benefit others.

My values

  • Faith, family and friends
  • The power of community
  • Good leadership matters
  • Integrity and sustainable excellence
  • Forward momentum and tangible results
  • Going fishing, good reads & great coffee
  • Anything outdoors

In business, life and relationships, there are basics and fundamentals.
Mastering the basics gives us a chance to succeed.

In today’s high paced business world, random change happens and we get all twisted up. Suddenly, there are different sets of basics for different parts of the process. There are things we learn and then forget or abandon. There’s stuff we worry about, the big stuff or the “shiny new” and the tricky.
