I catalyze inclusive, equitable, and strategic climate solutions for regenerative cities of the future.
As an urbanist, artist, speaker, and foresight strategist I founded Regenerative Futurist as a platform for local actions to global climate goals. As Chair of the West Michigan Climate Reality Chapter, a member of DEAL's (Donut Economics Action Lab) Renegade Neighborhood Economists International cohort, an expert contributing to Good Energy Stories, and a member of the White Lake Area Climate Action Coalition, I’ve committed to climate action in West Michigan over the last 3 years after living in California over the last 3 decades.
With over 20 years of community engagement and creative placemaking as an awarded artist and Cofounder of Internationally recognized social impact firm Popuphood, my local economic development and place-based marketing has been recognized by the 2012 & 2013 Venice Biennale, Art Place, The New York Times, NPR, The Street Journal, Forbes, The Atlantic, Huffington Post, and many more. I have delivered Keynotes to prestigious international organizations, and lent expertise to numerous conferences, and global reports.
