For individuals and organizations, every crossroads is a chance to change our destiny. Our growth and success depend on understanding where we've been and believing in where we can go.

I'm an evaluation specialist at the
Foreign Service Institute, in the
US Department of State.


As a psychologist, I'm passionate about

helping individuals become their best selves.

We can kindle and sustain creativity, collaboration, resilience, and joy, if we apply intentional design, motivational training, and inclusive values.

I explore these issues in happiness, courage, and creativity.

Fundamentally, I believe we must "reach 2 grow."
