Exhume Your Buried Dreams. 

Trust Your Creative Instincts.  

Design Life On Your Terms.  

Speak In Public.

You are a part of all that you have met; / Yet all experience is an arch wheretrho' / Gleams that untraveled world whose margin fades / forever and forever when you move.  -Tennysons' Ulysses

Over the past twenty-five years, I have traveled the world in the service of poetry, art, creativity, and storytelling.  My work and play overlap. If you'd like to find out more about how you can overlap your work and play let's schedule a free chat. You can collaborate with me on speech and presentation coaching, Artist's Way Creativity intensives, writing and storytelling coaching, and strategic planning for your life or business. 

Enjoy this short video which I filmed on a November morning in Paris.

Notice the scattering leaves.
