and I believe that every human being is built for purpose, craves meaningfulness, and deserves to be fulfilled in life and work.
I am a New Englander at heart (go Red Sox!), but I have made my way through Virginia, Washington, D.C., and now live in Fort Collins, Colo. with my amazing wife, Erin, two sons, Tapley and Jaxon, and one quirky dog.
I don’t think there is such thing as too much espresso, you can usually find me out on my road bike, I love watching baseball, and I am an obsessive newspaper reader. And yes, I read research articles for fun.
Now, for the professional stuff:
Through writing, speaking, and consulting, I help cultivate Purposeful Leaders and build positive organizations.
My practice is informed by my work with over 100 organizations in nearly every industry and research on meaningful work, purposeful leadership, and positive organizational psychology. Some of my clients have included Hewlett-Packard, Crocs, Telstra, The National Park Service, and The Alzheimer’s Association.
I also serve as a researcher and Honorary Fellow of Psychology in the Center for Meaning and Purpose and as an Instructor in Organizational Learning, Performance, and Change at Colorado State University.
