I am empowering and facilitating a societal transition to a regenerative relationship with nature.
15 years ago I worked as a Knowledge Manager for a Strategic Consulting Cy, serving Fortune 500 companies. After a couple years I realized that in those industries, sustainability actually meant maintaining profits and using these vital concepts as marketing tools to increase sales. And what’s worse, if these corporate agendas I was supporting were successful, it would actually hinder society’s transition to sustainability.
I saw clearly then that my continued participation in that corrosive economy was impossible, and if I was to honor my values, and the deep love I have for nature, I needed re-create my life. It took years to leave my job, my house, my sports car, my wife, But I knew I had to, and though my family, friends and colleagues thought I was going crazy, I had never been more happy.
In time I found myself on my current path, creating regenerative organizations and programs, in as leveraged and systemic a way as possible, to co-create the momentum we need to live in the regenerative world my heart knows is possible.
I co-founded Upward Spirals, a regenerative think tank and consulting company, to magnify the sustainable solutions community’s ability to co-create a regenerative future. We build tools, templates, guides, business plans, and social benefit programs for leaders of regenerative projects, to help them accelerate the co-creation of a sustainable culture, in balance with nature. Our goal is to develop and empower a global network of holistic economic development centers using regenerative models and tools to systematically co-create a healthy planet, people, and communities.
As the director of the Diamante Solution Center, a ‘template organization’ created by Upward Spirals, I guide the organization and our team towards our social impact goals. I create regenerative impact models, strategic plans, project management tools, and manage our knowledge resources to help the team be as effective as possible, and facilitate our shared goals. I have the pleasure of working with some of the most heart-centered educators, healers, and community builders in the world, and love this beautiful world we’re all creating together.
