thinkers + doers is my business – registered in the state of Oregon since 2003.

I work with a range of clients – small businesses, public agencies, and community benefit organizations – to increase their impact and effectiveness, or to help out when they need an extra pair of hands. (I also often work with others in which case, “I” becomes “we.”)

Typically, I work in the following areas:

  • Strategy (including resource development)
  • Concept & proposal development
  • Communication, documentation, narrative development
  • Impact assessment
  • Community engagement & collaboration
  • Innovation
  • Research & analysis

And in these domains:

  • Public policy
  • Social innovation/entrepreneurship
  • Economic & workforce development
  • Leadership, governance & collaboration (including Social Network Analysis/Network Weaving)
  • Social learning

Discovering new ways for people, firms, and communities to prosper is the reason I wake up every morning.
