I live in Vermont’s Champlain Valley, although I was born and raised in the Midwest United States. I am a systems thinker with an interdisciplinary education. These days I earn my living as an educator, consultant, and more generally as a scholarly entrepreneur. I produce A Worldview Apart, a podcast that explores the power of perspective in the 21st century. When I am not teaching, working with clients or recording and editing podcast episodes, you can often find me wandering Vermont’s forests and fields fishing, hunting, foraging for wild edible and medicinal foods, or searching for that perfect sapling I can turn into a fast, durable hunting bow. I have longstanding interests in functional fitness, martial arts, eastern philosophy, archeology, anthropology, and history. If you would like to work with me on a project, invite me to speak at your event, or just chat contact me. I do receive a high volume of email, so please be patient as you wait for my response. You can get a sense for the type of work I do and see recorded talks I’ve offered on my media page, and browse through my events page to see what I am up to.


This website and the podcast A Worldview Apart would not be possible without the support of many people. I first want to thank everyone who supports the podcast through Patreon. Their financial contributions allow the podcast to remain free of advertising. I also thank the many friends and family who have offered moral and creative support over the years. Andrew Sepic, of Think Up! Design, deserves accolades for assisting in the development of this website and for hosting it. The parchment texture I use as the background of podcast logos, graphics, and other documents was acquired from, which permits free use of its products with attribution.
