Maybe you found my words on the street

or in a cafe, listened to my podcast,

or heard me on the radio.

Maybe I found you. Either way,

I'm happy you're here.
Show me your humanness

I will show you mine


Maybe you found my words on the street

or in a cafe, listened to my podcast,

or heard me on the radio.

Maybe I found you. Either way,

I'm happy you're here.
Show me your humanness

I will show you mine

I give words to
what makes us human


The primary goal of my words is to connect with people.

I focus on words and texts that capture the essence of our being human.

The personal, honest, authentic, vulnerable powerful.
Words that connect me to you, you to you,
or you to the one who reads them.

Join me in the messy middle.

Receive a weekly preview of my book 'The Messy Middle' which

will be published in March 2023. 

For the messy middle, there is no manual

on how to do it. We just do. Let's do it together.

Because in the end, we are all 

much more the same than we are different.

I share my personal poems and stories via Substack and my podcast.

I also write custom words.

For your company or a personal poem or reflection.

sometimes it seems

life dug you a well

you could never get out of

until you did

with dust in your bones

and fire in you heart

you understood

it was just there

to make you grow taller

than you thought you were
