I play and have played many roles, and enjoy them all. The way I see them all flowing together is as a facilitator and practitioner of connective living in both my personal and professional life. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve you in the best way I can if you choose to use any of the services I offer or even to enjoy and benefit from the posts on my blog or videos on my YouTube channel, The Connective Living Channel. I have received much, and those latter services are my gift to you.
