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 to be as effective and transformative as they can be.

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.

Wondering at Life through the Macro Lens

From Sea to Shining Sea: My Journey to California

I’m having an anniversary this month. It’s a celebration! Twenty years this month, perhaps even to this very day as I write this, I set up my new home in California and I haven’t looked back. I remember quite vividly making the trek into Oakland, California in a caravan with my dad. He drove the Uhaul truck with my belongings. And, I followed behind in my blue-grey Toyota Cressida packed with even more of my belongings…because, I have never mastered the art of traveling lite.
