I have spent more than 20 years strengthening individuals, organizations, and communities across local, state, and national contexts as an applied researcher with a Ph.D. in Education. I have published a memoir, The Stage is on Fire, and an award-winning essay in the Washingtonian, The Unspeakable Gift. My writing can be found on popular blogs such as Goodlife ZEN, gratefulness.org, Medium, Thrive, and Whole Life Challenge. I have explored the intersection of arts and science in textbook chapters, policy briefs, program evaluations and curricula for leading organizations such as The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Blue Man Group, NASA, and the United States Department of Education.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
