Designing experiential learning programs for adults has been “my thing” for over 20 years. I’ve been gratified to set the stage for life-changing shifts for thousands of participants in academic, corporate, personal growth, and drumming groups.

My life before drum circles was in the business world, where I learned a lot, but which ultimately led me to a soul-crushing dead end.

Luckily, I discovered drum circles. I was astounded at the depth of experience, learning, and transformative potential of group drumming. I’ve been enthralled and immersed ever since.

I am part of the world-wide community of drum circle facilitators (DCFs) whose “hub” was created by the work of Arthur Hull. Arthur’s teachings, travels, dedicated rhythm evangelism, and focus on community building has built a powerful network of “rhythm practitioners” serving groups of all kinds.

I have been fortunate to meet, visit, and work with hundreds of practicing DCFs at various trainings, conferences, and on my “Drumabout” travels. Long fascinated by how people come to this work from such wildly different fields, I’ve tracked “what works” as colleagues develop their DCF businesses and careers.

Over the years, I have helped design programs for Drum Circle Facilitators Guild conferences and Arthur Hull / Village Music Circles.

My DCF business is RhythmLift, based in San Diego. I am also a creative partner with Jú Linares and her DCF business in São Paulo, Brazil, Ritmo Expansão.

And I love helping people help more people drum!
