About

I grew up on a farm along the banks of the Upper Mississippi River in Wisconsin. I overcame my school experience to earn a PhD in Organizational Learning at The Union Institute and University. I developed curriculum for adults and taught at a small liberal arts college. Consulting and research in organizational learning with a group that started at MIT segued into ten years of field research at Harley-Davidson, where I was their Learning Historian/Reflective Analyst.

I left consulting to learn the craft of writing that went beyond academic studies, organizational narratives, and the occasional essay. I thought the result would be humorous travelogues and essays, but what eventually emerged was much different. Underneath the exotic backdrop of South America and a jocular narrative existed a road into a place that can never be fully understood with a map. With all the theoretical understanding that I amassed, I still didn’t understand; that’s why Dave showed up.

If you don’t count my eight guitars and four bikes, I live a very simple life in San Francisco.
