I’m a writer, speaker, and the publisher and CEO at Wonderwell. A spelling stickler and word collector; a cheerleader for the human race, and an irrepressible optimist with just a wee fatalistic streak.
I’m a life adventurer with built-in spiritual GPS. (I do not believe in wrong turns, even when they take you through a fire swamp.)
I embrace the quirky and encourage the idiosyncratic wherever I find it. There’s magic in weirdness.
I have taught myself tact and nice manners because…
I WAS ALWAYS TOO LOUD IN CLASS!
I’m a goofball and I love to laugh, with a sense of humour that lives at the intersection of Rumi and Benny Hill. (Thanks, Dad.)
I HAVE A TERRIBLE HEAD FOR FACTS AND FIGURES, BUT A HOMING INSTINCT FOR MEANING.
When faced with complexity, I feel in my bones that it is my job to winnow out the simple truth at the heart of the matter.
I BELIEVE THAT THE PURPOSE OF LIFE IS TO LEARN TO LOVE.
