Principal & Chief Strategist
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been curious about everything – and I’ve always had this larger-than-life imagination.
In my work, my curiosity has turned me into a self-confessed market research freak. I’m always itching to know what donors think, how they feel, and what motivates them to do the good works they do. We Good Workers are deeply committed to listening carefully to donors – and then helping our clients give those donors the experience that strengthens their commitment to the cause and loyalty to the organization.
In my work, my true passions are writing and speaking. I co co-wrote a book called Iceberg Philanthropy and have contributed a chapter to a new book called ‘me-volution’. My latest book 3D Philanthropy is my opus. My articles (which I often call contrarian rants) are published in fundraising journals quite often.
My work and my life are intertwined. My daughter is now a fundraiser – and my wife also became a fundraiser (after meeting me!). I often come up with my best fundraising ideas when I’m riding my bike, paddling my kayak or doing shivasana on my yoga mat.
Good Works – and everything it stands for – is in my soul. I’ve committed the rest of my career to helping next gen fundraisers connect with their donors more deeply than they’d ever imagined. There’s no doubt in my mind that this work will always stir my heart and feed my soul.
