Welcome

…to my personal and professional workspace, more journal than sales pitch, shared openly since 1998. Please contact me if you think we might have something to talk about or do together. I’d be glad to hear about the projects and breakthroughs you’re working on.

Since 1991, I’ve worked as principal consultant for Michael Herman Associates, known for practical insight informed by wide-ranging methods and experience, in business and community organizations, including:

  • design, communication, and facilitation for complex meetings and initiatives
  • writing, training and coaching, especially on Open Space and Inviting Leadership
  • online workspace development and general project management support

I’ve always been fascinated by how things are shaped and how things get done: structure and movement, organization and markets, landscapes and rivers, bodies and biochemistry. I’d rather walk or bike than drive, rather backpack than rollaboard. I once moved to London for a second date, which turned into happily ever after, restoring a classic Chicago bungalow (doing quite a lot of the work myself), along the north branch of the Chicago River.

What large or small things can we do together now — to extend and expand, leverage and deepen, our learning and contribution — in the service of evolutionary platforms and movements anywhere in the world?

That’s what I want to find out.
