Profile Information

How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
Working with Judy Wallace and Ria Baeck - I am attracted to more open, emergent ways of hosting meetings.
Tell us about your experience with Art of Hosting as part of your life and work. What would you say your competence in it is? (new, starting practitioner, experienced practitioner, steward)
My work combines facilitation, sustainability strategy, and networks -- I incorporate elements of Open Space, World Cafe, Appreciative Inquiry, and strategic questioning in the way I design events. I am drawn to discover and practice how to host events that let the wisdom of the group emerge and generate many more connections and innovative ideas.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
Sustainability (climate change action, local food systems, green business) and social change.
Where do you live/work?
Live in Vermont - mostly work in New England, USA
Would you like to share a web address?
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
I am passionate about connecting people to nature and would like to explore further how to add this element into gatherings (enough of windowless conference rooms!) I'm also interested in ways to "see the system" such as network mapping or other visuals that help people work together more effectively, especially in complex systems. I am also exploring "collective presencing" (Ria Baeck's work) and what it means to practice collective leadership.
