I’m here to build bridges and weave possibilities across generations, cultures, and traditions, bringing people together to listen and creatively respond to the needs of the times, in service of life. I grew up in the green valleys of Western Massachusetts and the high desert of New Mexico—and am currently living alongside the Sisters of Mercy, on the traditional land of the Ramaytush Ohlone people, in Burlingame, CA.

In addition to helping create networks and organizations, I’ve offered talks, workshops, facilitation, and program design support for dozens of educational, cultural, and religious institutions. If you think I might be able to be of service, don’t hesitate to be in touch! In case it’s helpful, here’s a more formal bio, below…Thanks!
