I'm a co-founder and Sr. Analyst for the non-profit Coalitions of Mutual Endeavor (COME), and a practitioner and researcher in the fields of systems science and ecopsychology--helping people remember how to think and act the way that nature works. In other words, a paradigm shift coach. Within COME, I apply natural systems principles for a framework to build multi-issue coalitions based on non-hierarchical organization, communication, sharing leadership, and democratic group decision making. The overall goal is creating the critical mass necessary to transition to a sustainable future.
I'm a member of a national speakers bureau on global warming, and also speak regularly and have run political campaigns based on the relationships among Peak Oil, global warming, corporatism, industrialism, the theft of the commons, dominator hierarchies, and how the alternative of relocalization--powering down, reconnecting, steady-state economies, and an Earth jurisprudence--provides a practical, affordable process to create a sustainable future based on ecological integrity, social justice, economic equity, and participatory democracy.
My articles and essays have appeared in New Earth Rising, Culture Change, Rachel's Democracy and Health News, Energy Bulletin, Shan Newspaper, OpEd News, and regional and local publications. My academic papers have appeared in the proceedings of the International Society for Chaos Theory in Psychology (1992), the International Society for the Systems Sciences (2006), and the Arizona Hydrological Society (2007). The working title of my book-in-progress is "Connecting the Dots: Reversing Our Handbasket to Hell."
