Consulting

I’m an award-winning science/business journalist with a background in behavioral science (psychology, neuroscience, sociology, and system dynamics). I’m currently working on a book about Unstoppable Momentum: A Field Guide to Grit, on the art of resilience and long-term productivity.

My specialty is translating Super Nerdy Gibberish to Something Helpful and Easy to Understand.

Speaking

Want to learn about planning for an uncertain future?

I’ve been researching, writing, and speaking about thriving despite life’s inevitable unknowns for years.
