Welcome

I am a researcher, writer, and programmer who works on the story-listening side of organizational and community narrative. I consult for organizations and communities and help them collect diverse perspectives and experiences, discover patterns, make sense of the patterns they see, make decisions, and plan for the future.


My book Working with Stories is for people who want to help their own communities and organizations by doing story projects.


My open source web application, Rakontu, helps small groups of people share and work with stories to achieve common goals.
