I work as a Research Director with Institute for the Future’s Ten-Year Forecast program, where my primary responsibility is customization and interpretation of IFTF research for diverse clients. I have worked with clients ranging from large corporations like Procter & Gamble and Hallmark Cards Inc. to government agencies like the Office of Naval Research to non-profit organizations like United Cerebral Palsy, AARP, and the Episcopal Church. A core expertise is workshop design and facilitation and I'm an experienced game guide in IFTF’s Foresight Engine forecasting engagements. I hold a M. Div. from Yale Divinity School and an M. Phil. from Trinity College in Dublin, with a special interest in building shared visions of the future. Am originally from Iowa and am also Irish; therefore, Iowish. Delighted be involved with TEDxRedding!
