Professional Interests
I'm an American businessman with offices in Bozeman, Montana. My professional focus is on strategic planning, corporate communication, education management, and professional development. I've founded and operated several successful organizations over the last 40 years, successfully leveraging cultural insight, technical knowledge, and business acumen into viable businesses.

I help individuals and organizations achieve success in these ways:

CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS. I apply astute writing skills, editorial precision, and publishing know-how to help partners across Europe and North America establish their brands and build effective marketing, education, and public outreach campaigns.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. I manage professional conferences, critical meetings, and fast-moving training events for progressive organizations. I lead the Habitat X Conferences in the U.S. and Europe, providing professional development opportunities for people in the sustainable housing industry.

SPEAKING and TRAINING. I lead, inspire, and train groups of people in professional settings as a keynote speaker, moderator, emcee, and technical trainer.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY. I help organizations develop and implement standards and specifications for energy efficient buildings.

My upcoming book, Human Habitat, is due on the streets in 2018, and will report from the intersection of housing, culture, and the environment.
