I serve as Professor of Creativity and Innovation at Colorado College. My joy lies in connecting diverse people with their innate creativity and with each other. I have taught a range of people, from college students to teachers to executives at The Banff Centre in Canada, where I guest taught in Leadership Development for ten years. I serve on the boards of The Association of Managers of Innovation and Converge, a non-profit dedicated to spreading delight through poetry. I have published several books of poetry and won the Colorado Book Award for poetry, among other honors.
