What is an underlying question that gives form to your work or interest in this field?

How can I be a good steward and share my time, talent, insight, and resources in ways that develop transformative relationships?

Please provide a brief storyline or snapshot of what brought you to this work.

My work spans sustainable community economic development, entrepreneurship, stewardship, leadership development, and grassroots organizing.

I lead Good Work, a community-based organization with a focus on economic empowerment, entrepreneurship, and sustainable development. I serve on the boards of the Beloved Community Center and stone circles.

In order to be the change we wish to see in the world, I believe each of us must develop an open mind and heart, a spirit of goodwill, and a wild imagination.

We also need to motivate others to better understand the forces that impact their lives, create goals rooted in their values and beliefs, and take action to become more self-reliant.

Finally, we must encourage everyone to be good stewards and share their time, talent, insight, and resources in ways that develop transformative relationships and create inclusive and restorative opportunities for building more sustainable communities.

How would you like to be available to others in this field?

I am open to developing a meaningful relationship.
