About Me

I am a writer, journalist, entrepreneur, and consultant specializing in business and sustainable development. My specific areas of expertise include planning, strategizing, visioning, communicating, green business, and the “art of the start.”

More broadly, I'm interested in forwarding positive change in all its aspects. For me, "sustainability" isn't merely technical; it's inclusive. It's about practices and processes, and also ways of being in the world. It's about the ancient wisdom traditions, and also about innovative thinking.

My most recent book, Out of the Labyrinth: Who We Are, How We Go Wrong, and What We Can Do About It, examines the "deep structures" of sustainability. What's wrong with the world at the macro level is a reflection, at the end of the day, of what's wrong with our psyches.
