My contemporary writing work–nonfiction, fiction, criticism, and poetry–appears in a variety of publications, including Humanities MagazineThe Molotov CocktailNew Mexico MagazineUltrarunning MagazineThe Albuquerque Journal, El Palacio MagazineThe Santa Fe ReporterThinking Highways, the Faircloth ReviewThe Wall Street JournalMedium CuratedPotluck Magazine, and Abyss & Apex. Examples are (of course) in the Google, or shoot me some electrons using the form below and I’ll send you a whole big list.

Although my days of serial entrepreneurialism (companies in knowledge management, marketing, technology, publishing, and futures consulting) are over, I remain involved and get involved in select projects that have the potential to change the way we see our world, and in particular, our future. This involvement typically takes the form of one-on-one coaching and consultation to management or board service.

For a couple of recent years, I co-hosted a twice-a-month podcast with retired Navy chaplain and university dean, Steve Smith. Hello, Human grappled with the questions of what it means to be, and how to be, a human in a world of machines and algorithms. It was an idiosyncratic conversation–embedded deeply in the humanities–that made the argument that those of us not made of silicon still have something to say about the future we’re all rushing into. The archives of these conversations are incomplete, but I hope to bring some of them online again shortly.

This same attention to the importance of the human also shows up on Lodestone, my blog, and in my commercial writing work.
