I work as an artist of social change. I engage with people in co-creating imaginative futures on behalf of people with intellectual disabilities and their families and allies.  For 50 years I have been committed to cultivating supportive relationships and conversations that can liberate people, and change the way we relate in our more inclusive communities. In this website you will find publications, videos, images, artifacts, and links to resources, that illuminate the faces, places, practices, and imaginative spaces where people are finding fresh ways to live their best lives.



I have curated this work under three themes: Person-Centered Planning, Organizational change, and Social arts of co-creation.  I invite you to explore these stories and experiences of real change. You will discover the ways that people are making a difference wherever they are.  I invite you to find your place in imagining a world that works for everyone!
