I completed my LifePlan with Tom Paterson in 1994 and was trained by Tom to facilitate LifePlans in 1995. As a certified LifePlan™ and StratOp™ facilitator, I have guided over 800 individuals in 23 years through a two-day intensive life perspective and life purpose process.  I have taken over 75 organizations through the StratOp process, most notably Otterbox. Otterbox used the StratOp process to grow from $4M to $1.0B in revenue.

A native of Colorado, I have had dynamic and diverse positions including those of Vice President of Communications and Creative Services at Promise Keepers for 10 years, Senior Consultant to numerous book authors for Yates & Yates, for 2 years, President of Convergence Planning for the past 12 years, and Lead Trainer for the Paterson Center for the past 10 years. 

I have a B.S. in Biology from Colorado College and earned my Masters of Divinity from Denver Seminary.  I continue to serve as an understudy and partner with Tom Paterson, an established strategic process facilitator for Fortune 500 companies, author, and inventor. I have been married to my best-friend and bride, Janet, since 1985 and live in Louisville, Colorado. We have two children: a daughter, Jordan, married to Adrian, and a son, Pearce, married to Kaelyn.
