INNOVATIVE CUTTING EDGE PROJECTS
From the arts to local ballot initiatives to global social issue activism, these are just a few of the potentially transforming projects and grand ideas I take an interest in. This is more than a casual consideration. I've adopted approaches using intentional dialogue to engage people in community organizing and advocacy which also empowers youth led activism.

The Non Sex organization and I'm Asexual education project
Asexual people, or “aces,” often identify somewhere on a spectrum that includes their emotional, spiritual and romantic attraction to others while defining the relationship or desire for interaction with the lack of sexual attraction to others, or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity. We know just how life-changing it can be to be welcomed into a community who supports you for who you are without concern for sex or gender as our goals are focused on creating connection and inclusion for ace and aro people in LGBTQ+ spaces.

STOP BOOK BANS Nationwide Campaign Effort - to learn more go to my website StopBookBans.com
US book bans and attempted bans rise spreading beyond school libraries to local public libraries. Book bans and attempted book bans continue to hit record highs, ALA tracked 695 challenges to library materials and services, compared with 681 during the same time period last year, and a 20% jump in the number of “unique titles” involved to 1,915. School libraries had long been the predominant target, but in 2023 reports have been near-equally divided between schools and libraries open to the general public. Censorship needs to stop!
WISR.edu Doctorial Graduate Project: Community Conversations www.CommunityConversations.com
I'm currently researching empowered Community Conversations and Citizen Dialogues which are localized, small-group topical gatherings where participants open up, identifying what they want for their community, what needs to change to reach those goals with ways to face challenges they face in moving ideals forward.
It's more important than ever to bring people together to meet each other and discover common interests.
I'm excited about LUNCH WEBINARS as an opportunity to brand the two concepts where everyone has either heard about or watched a Lunch Webinar or two with the hope thousands will be regular viewers. I believe its about time someone branded a webinar and combining the opportunity to eat lunch at work sitting in a cube offers a regular activity that will be geared to be both educational and informative with a sales pitch at the end

FUTURE PLANNER: Helping people prepare for tomorrow:
Scenario planning (sometimes called “scenario and contingency planning”) is a structured way for organisations to think about the future. A group of executives sets out to develop a small number of scenarios—stories about how the future might unfold and how this might affect an issue that confronts them. Planners use a strategic planning method that some organizations use to make flexible long-term plans. It is in large part an adaptation and generalization of classic methods used by military intelligence.
PRESS BREAKFASTS: Helping get the word out to your media community:
PRESS BREAKFAST is an effective PR tool and one of many that I innovated and perfected at trade shows and expos. Having produced dozens of successful Press Breakfasts among other media events around the world I am happy to work with your organization on your getting the 'story out' to news outlets. Lets talk about how we can help create memorable virtual experiences for local journalists they will be more than happy to write about.
