I began my Graphic Facilitation life in 1979 and went to work for myself in 1984 after spending a decade working at a community foundation in San Francisco. I still live and work in San Francisco but am willing to travel almost anywhere an inticing opportunity calls to me.

I love seeing the results of our work as people find clarity, common ground, or direction or they experience what it's like to really be listened to and validated or, in working with others, a sense of inspired collaboration and shared learning.

Over the years I grew to learn the vast scope and context of our work and the wonderful opportunities we have to learn about such things as process design, meeting space design, communications, human or group dynamics, facilitation and much more.

In addition to my practice, I am currently writing two companion pieces that will be published: The first is about visual thinking and organizational life; the second is about visual practice for those who want to incorporate visual thinking into their work/lives.

I have graphically facilitated everything from short, half day sessions to working on major change efforts in corporations which can last years. My clients have generally fallen into three categories: Corporations; smaller organizations and non-profits; and academic and government.

Here are a few examples of clients: Apple, Clorox, Hewlett Packard, Kraft Foods, Motorola, 3M, Toyota, Kodak, Nokia, Scripps Institute, Napa Valley Vintner's Assoc., Frances Ford Coppola/Studio/Winery/Foundation, San Francisco Office of the Mayor, University of California, Berkeley, Oakland Ethics Commission, Association of Bay Area Governments. University of Texas, San Antonio and much more.

I and a few other colleagues originated the annual visual practitioner conferences in 1995. I was also a founding board member of IFVP in the early 2000's.
