The world needs you to flourish
A beautiful flourishing world needs all of us to be our best selves, yet we are often disempowered from doing so by social and economic norms.
Your Natural Paradigm
A paradigm is a worldview — what you believe to be true about the world, how it works, and your role in it.
Your Natural Paradigm is what you believe to be true about the world, how it works, and your role in it when you are your true, authentic self --when you are your best self. You are operating from your Natural Paradigm when you’re playing with your kids, enjoying a stunning sunset, engrossed in a creative project, or helping a friend.
The problem is we tend to operate from another paradigm — the Conventional Paradigm — when we’re engaged with the ‘real world’. We are operating from the Conventional Paradigm when we’re stressing about work, obsessing about something on social media, or buying yet another thing we don’t need. When we operate from the Conventional Paradigm, we are not our true, authentic, best selves — and we cause harm to ourselves, others, and the Earth in the process.
You are unique and valuable.
A healthy world needs you to participate with your full and true self
– your natural self.
It’s already there – and is a joy to rediscover!
Practicing living from your own natural paradigm sets off a positive virtuous spiral of inspiration.
You become more inspired – and inspiring!
You reflect billions of years of evolution.
You have the wisdom of nature inside you.
It’s time to set it free!

My background in engineering and love of nature and creative thinking has led me to become a pragmatic progressive, a rational radical, perhaps an enigmatic engineer.
My driving aspiration is to help people – all of us -- realign with nature and our own human nature to support and serve our world. I work with people to explore nature’s paradigms, principles, and practices to generate the wildly innovative thinking needed to address real and relevant challenges, from the highly technical to the highly personal.
My greatest joy comes from enlightening, empowering, and equipping others so they can use their full creative capacity in making the world a better place.
