What started as a tiny little blog intended for internal sharing is now filling up with piles and piles of words, and I have decided to share these lessons with all.  As I continue innovating popular education work, I will continue to share my reflections, and this blog will continue to grow!

Listed here: reports on extended residencies first, followed by full-day workshops, smaller workshops, then one slideshow presentation, a tour organizing how-to, a series of essays/calls-to-action, and at the end you will find some previews, a portfolio of graphic designs, and some other sites to which I have contributed.
