I have a B.S. in Natural Resources from Cornell University and an MA in Counseling Psychology from U of Colorado at Denver. My wife is an art professor at Western State College and a professional figurative oil painter.

Our relationships within our community and professional networks can help improve the connections and conscious-building necessary for sustaining the transition movement. My clinical background can support the inner change necessary for the progression of community transition.
