Global humanitarian storyteller.

I make things that help teams and people make change.

I’m the Creative Director at Plant With Purpose, a nonprofit that transforms lives in rural villages around the world through environmental restoration. That means I get to travel and tell humanitarian stories for a living, and I absolutely love it.

I’m based in San Diego, California, but I love to get out and travel as much as possible, preferably with my wife Deanna and our dog, Beignet. Welcome to my website, which is both a portfolio of my work and a glimpse into my world.

PURPOSE PEP TALKs

Early on, I realized that there were at least three things I knew I wanted to have playing big roles in my life. I wanted to spend lots of time traveling and learning from other cultures. I wanted to do work that helped people, confronted injustice, and looked for solutions. I also wanted to put my creativity and love of storytelling to good use.

I’m one of the lucky ones. I get to live this dream every day. And I get to make money doing it. And I want to help other people live the dream of exploring the world, empowering people, and using creativity for good.

Are you juggling a bunch of different interests and goals wondering how to make them connect? Do you want to know how to actually make a real difference in the world, that isn’t just for show? Do you want to do more meaningful work but feel limited by other commitments? Do you want to see more of the world and help other people along the way?

If any of this is you, I’d love to help. Just fill out the form below!
