About the Book
I am a life-long student and advocate for the relationship between people and place. I've worked with many different people in very different geography from remote Nepal to the Rocky Mountains to central Harlem, New York. My life as emergency medical technician, photographer, author, father, farmer, and facilitator combine unusual aspects of the practical and the visionary to produce work that has been helpful to a variety of sectors: conservation, leadership development, sustainability, philanthropy, ethics, and social ventures. For twenty years, I've been creating curricula and leading learning experiences designed to help people transform their lives and work to better fit their values and to build professional relationships across divides of class, race, profession and ideology.
