I’m an interdisciplinary thinker, a systems generalist in a specialist world. Professional training in science coupled to meditational practices has empowered me to seek both breadth and depth of insight, while working (and playing!) on projects that have a positive impact. I recognize and embrace the complexity and beauty of the changes needed to bring balance. I believe this is a time of connecting with all who are ready to acknowledge personal authenticity, the power of our true transformative natures, and the virtues of fun, cooperation, intensity, and appreciation.
Education: Undergraduate degree in Psychology; Doctorate in Neurosciences; complex systems research at LANL and SFI; postdoctoral training in Physiology at Oxford and in Ecology at the University of New Mexico.
I consult in many areas - as a neuroscientist and specialist in physiological circuits, my primary work is in brain and health optimization. As a complex systems scientist, I’ve been a consultant to companies, non-profits, and government agencies on strategies, research and analysis, and organizing change movements both online and real-world/legislative.
I’ve run a non-profit, currently being reorganized - The Global Dialog Project, which successfully used ancient as well as Bohmian dialogue techniques to explore new types of human group dynamics (so necessary!). GDP then self- organized into a movement which won multiple awards for its grassroots support of the Bill of Rights post 9/11.
My most recent research is in the area of building and maintaining healthy ecosystems, healthy minds, and healthy organizations, but I have ongoing projects in diverse areas including AI, big data, preventing aging, cross-cultural wisdom and cultural change, complex systems business analysis, beneficial disruption, and anchoring conscious ethical principles in all arenas.
