His professional experience includes serving as President of the Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS, Inc.) from 2001 to 2007, and Dean of the School of Applied Behavioral Science at Bastyr University from 1997-2006.

He is committed to leadership development. Since he believes that leadership is fundamentally a dance between the leader, the followers and the organizational mission, his approach focuses on helping the individual develop the ability to both take a stand and stay connected with others in service of the desired results. Given his work in adult education his approach is one that emphasizes inquiry and directed reflection tailored to the individual's circumstances.

His postgraduate training includes the Art & Practice of Leadership Development program at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, Peter Bloch's Regional School for Managing, Leadership Eastside, and Pacific Integral's two-year Generating Transformational Change program.
