I am committed to helping individuals and organizations discover, learn, and grow toward your desired future. My life experience has connected me with hundreds of individuals and numerous organizational settings. In all of these interactions I have worked to help people understand and explore these questions:

Who am I? Why am I here? Where do I want to go? How can I get there? Who can help me?

 My promise is to help you become more fully yourself. Through exploration, evaluation, resourcing, understanding, decision making and goal setting I will help you develop and put into action a plan of forward directed life progress.

I have directed programs for schools, a camp & conference center, a local church and university campus ministry. Additionally, I have fulfilled a variety of roles across the age/grade spectrum in public education and have been an instructor for City University Graduate School of Education and a community parent educator. I have a M.Ed., Adult Education from WWU and a B.S. from Oregon College of Education (Western Oregon University). I, also, have diverse experience in writing for numerous publications.

I am married to Connie and we have two adult sons; Kyle (married to Sarah) and Michael and five grandchildren. My blog of essays, poetry and micro-fiction can be found at http://thefaithfulskeptic.blogspot.com/
