Storytelling for the


Ours is a planetary predicament. For the first time in human history, we have an increasingly global culture, a shared technological future, and the makings of a climate disaster. This is a time for collaborative solutions, cross-cultural dialogue, and radical innovation. This world needs new stories, and you have a story to tell!


I wrote a book about how to go about doing this. About how we can learn to get out of our own way so that we can see the world through different kinds of experiences. Now I am in the process of deepening my knowledge of Design Thinking. I see this as one avenue toward facing our shared challenges and creating the lasting change we need.
