On a personal note

In my quest for living a more purposeful life, I have had to constantly re-invent myself and learn from past failures and successes. In a previous life I did my military training in the paratroopers [I have a fear of heights], I was a lifesaver [I am a terrible swimmer] and a preacher [I'm still figuring out what I believe]. I was once a media spokesperson for the Chief Justice of Nova Scotia. Go figure, I don’t have a law degree. And if you call me and you get voice mail, I’m most likely immersed in photography – see FotoMoods.com – learning about life and light through the lens.

My experience and eclectic background as a preacher, coach, author and photographer have led me to speak and coach about the art of inviting possibility by inspiring employee innovation and effecting real change through the power of authentic dialogue and compelling storytelling.
