I deliver engaging, interactive keynotes that share why drawing is such a powerful thinking tool — and concrete, accessible hows that get your people immediately picking up paper and pen to make meaning of their work and your event.

Beyond "sage on the stage," I use my experience as a trainer and facilitator to create a custom experience for your audience.

  

So happy to lead a half day session during EuViz Brussels Powwow
April 30 - May 1, 2017.

My signature program is The Lab, a three-day immerision into visual thinking through the lens of graphic facilitation. Six people join me in this safe yet challenging environment full of practice, conversation, experiementation and direct feedback.

   Registration open for Labs in the Netherlands and Denmark this Spring. NL is full, 2 spots open for DK!

I also create custom learning programs that can be geared towards the process-focused corners of The Draw Quad:
Drawing to DO
Instruction on graphic facilitation, how to be the one person drawing to serve a group
Drawing to THINK
Geared towards individuals developing their personal visual thinking skills.

Summer of 2016, my co-editors and I launched an anthology about our work, Drawn Together Through Visual Practice. Twenty-seven contributors share their processes and experiences in this rich volume.

In 2012, I published my first book is The Graphic Facilitator's Guide, dubbed "The Graphic Facilitation Bible" by visual thinking leader Nancy Margelius. Learn more >

 

For two decades, I have worked as a graphic facilitator; the one person in the room mapping out the conversations and presentations for a wide variety of clients. I transform your discussion into a tangible drawing that frees your best mind to focus, make more connections, generate new ideas and understand their work in new ways.

As the visual, silent partner to a facilitator, I collaborate with you to make meetings more productive with the best use of visual, spatial and kinesthetic tools.
