I’ve been a communications professional since the late 1970s. At Oregon State University and as a freelancer, I’ve edited several hundred documents including scientific and technical articles, book chapters and whole books, theses, special reports including a science-based policy document for the US Congress, and website text. I’ve written articles and a book chapter about communications, website text, and grant proposals and newsletters for nonprofits. My book The Fine Art of Technical Writing has been a writer’s worthy companion for nearly 30 years.
I’ve been a land whisperer and Earth worker since the early 2000s. Land whispering is a shamanic practice that redresses desecration by restoring balance in a given environment. Much of the work centers on clearing patterns of disharmony; other aspects include helping souls transition and conducting soul retrieval for land devastated by violence or other trauma. In spring 2019 I published Land Whisperer | A Guide to Partnering Energetically with Any Environment, a pragmatic approach to land healing and communicating with the multidimensional world in which we live for the benefit of all lifeforms. Earth work is land whispering on a larger level with a focus on issues relating to planetary evolution.
All my work centers on communications. Using my analytical and intuitive skills, I bridge differing avenues of communication — words and energy — towards a common goal: greater clarity. For the clearer we are, the better our world.
A New Yorker by birth, I’ve lived in Oregon and Hawai’i and now make my home in the San Francisco Bay Area.
