Magical Tree in Dreams and birds flying above it in heavenly sea and sky
A Full Spectrum of Possibilities

ColorThisWorld Communications is an expression of my mission to build a healthier, more just, and more vibrant world. Through my commitment to values-based communications, I help organizations, initiatives, and campaigns working for social change be the force for good they want to be in the world.

There are a myriad of ways that you can communicate with your audiences. But how do you really engage with people and inspire them? I can help you tap the power of visual, written, and multimedia communication to spark new ideas, touch hearts and minds, and ultimately transform the way we move through the world.
Looking for communications, public relations, and marketing support for your organization, initiative, or campaign? Want to add a splash of crimson, a smattering of indigo, some zesty green to your efforts? Let’s explore how we can be a force for good, together.

Discover Life Outside the Computer Screen

Love the outdoors? I do. Oh, how I do! And my hope is that more people would come to love the outdoors too. I love to go for long runs along the water’s edge or lovely mountainside trail, losing myself in my thoughts. I love journeying through long bicycling rides, alone or with friends, along less-traveled roads that twist and turn through shaded groves and open trailways. I love catching the smell of eucalyptus trees while hiking. I love the magic of kayaking in a quiet estuary or bay and discovering new pockets of life hidden in rocks and coves. Even a simple walk in the hills around my neighborhood, feeling the fresh breeze of air and marveling at the colors of every flower patch I encounter, can be life-giving.

The Life-Changing Magic of Buying a Car

The environmentalist in me does not want to share this news. But…I bought a car this week, and it has brought me unexpected bliss. For years, I have prided myself on the fact that I pretty much get around everywhere by walking, bicycling, public transit, and the occasional use of Lyft. I live in one of the most walkable corridors of one of the most walkable cities in the country. The weather is temperate here, and I work from home most days. So getting outdoors on foot and interacting with the world outside my doorstep is not only recommended, it’s part of how I maintain (some semblance of) sanity each day.

Wondering at Life through the Macro Lens

This holiday season, I treated myself to a set of camera lenses for my iPhone. I love photography, though I’m only an amateur photographer at best. But enjoy the act of capturing a moment in time or a beautiful scene with a thoughtfully composed snapshot. And I love marveling at the ways that others capture the beauty of the world through their photo offerings. While some will bemoan the negative effects of social media on today’s society, I confess that I am, more often than not, inspired by the thoughts and images that float through my Instagram feed.
