I am the Board Chair of the Clarion West Writers Workshop.
I have a BA in theatre performance. I’ve hosted a syndicated radio program, crewed on more than a hundred live television sports and entertainment broadcasts, delivered flowers, built stage sets, and performed guerrilla theatre in a bikers’ bar. I had a corporate career in planning, facilitation, organizational dynamics and project management, most recently as a vice president of Wizards of the Coast, publisher of trading card and role-playing games (including Magic, Dungeons and Dragons, and PokÃ©mon). I am the author of A Leader’s Manifesto and the creator of the Humans At Work program to help make managers better.
I like food, drink, and good conversation. I like music and books and movies. I like to dance. I like a good story. I look for joy.
