Local living economies.

I have an abiding interest in rural economic development, helping communities that are already livable socially and environmentally to come up with an economic model that works for them. I want to convene and introduce new ideas from my experience as an entrepreneur in community economic development.

I see entrepreneurship as not simply being synonymous with business: rather, it’s a way of looking at the world, and it’s a community development tool. My element is the convergence of community and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is like art — using existing building blocks to evolve a new offering into the world.
