A little bit about me.

I work in the field of Healthy Community Development.

I am a traveller who has been to 1/4 of the worlds countries and I am a teacher who loves messing with how people think about the poor. To date I have helped over 25 000 people participate in international adventures, and make a real difference in people’s lives – including their own.

I help people see the world in a different way, and I share simple helpful tools for people to make a real difference. I love creating ‘Aha!” moments for people.

I am a practitioner and have lead staffing and multi-million dollar programs in difficult areas of the world, including DR Congo and Haiti. I have driven countless miles in land-cruisers, eaten the strangest meals, met the king of Nindja and trained thousands of leaders to community transformation.

I have professionally communicated for two decades, and am comfortable in front of thousands as well as more intimate leadership groups. If you want to ask a question or check my availability please use the contact form below.
