I enjoy starting up creative projects that reflect the needs of local communities, as well as sharing inspiring stories and resources with folks looking to engage their own communities.
As a coach, I journey alongside folks who find themselves in personal or career transitions and help organizations, leaders and individuals to dream and develop their own plans and toolkits.
As an American, I lived and worked in the U.K. for 20 years where I initiated and started a youth chaplaincy as well as helped start three innovative faith-based communities and a music festival which attracted folks from across Europe. I have also spoken at faith-based communities and organizations across Europe in places such as Czech Republic, Norway, Sweden, Poland, France and across the U.K. I’ve also had the privilege of facilitating workshops cross-culturally in Egypt and in the USA.
In recent years, I journeyed with the activist community of East London in a chaplaincy type of role, exploring God at work in their communities.
For a number of years I have been involved as a coach, mentor and facilitator with a grassroots network of Jesus-followers in the UK, who seek to embody the Good News in innovative and creative ways. As part of this organization, I helped facilitate retreats, lead workshops, offer one-on-one consultancy and host an annual House party, which has become the main gathering point for those in the network.
These days I am spending my time working with young people with a newly formed faith-base community in Portland, Oregon, as well as supporting folks who wish to engage with their communities in creative ways. I am also in the process of obtaining my credentials with the International Coaching Federation and have earned my Coaching Mastery Certificate with Creative Results Management.
