I am a Possibilitarian. My focus is on the art of the possible, helping people and teams get unstuck, imagine their best next step, and make it happen.

Current projects:

XPLANATiONs is my continuing work. Since the 1980s I have focused on developing visual maps and stories that make complex information more actionable and easier to understand. I still enjoy this work immensely and create custom visual explanations for select clients. Read the story of an XPLANATiON.
