About.

INSPIRED BY NATURE.

Through repeated first-hand experience of the immeasurable, I have learned that everything is possible.

Beginning with the in-earnest question, “What is wrong with us?” as a high school student, I decided to study psychology to help me understand how it is that humanity could be destroying the life support systems of Earth. A B.A. in psychology from Dominican University (1999) did not enlighten me on this point. Through the Green MBA program (New College, 2007) I learned of the phenomenal and inspiring power of business to be the drivers of fast, positive change. But it wasn’t until studying the history of spiritual and religious traditions (PhD in Mythological Studies, Pacifica Graduate Institute, March 2017) that I developed deep understanding of the human condition. This education coupled with my personal spiritual path has led to my research and future publications. Access the video of my dissertation oral defense here.
