Whether they express their creativity in the arts, sciences, engineering, socially-driven entrepreneurship or elsewhere, small businesses and cultural organizations are transformational drivers in our communities with the potential to lead us towards more sustainable, just, equitable and enjoyable futures.

Creative communities come in many sizes from towns of 100 to cities of more than 1 million. They celebrate their diversity. They invest in STEAM education, cultural activities and local businesses. They collaborate across sectors to develop solutions to social, economic and environmental challenges. And, they understand how important equity is to ensuring every member of the community thrives.

In order to effectively realize their visions, creative small businesses, cultural organizations, and communities must be clear about their aspirations, intentions and the steps and resources necessary to achieve them. They must also be ready to transform, which requires creative strategies, applicable research and the confidence to make the desired changes.

Panel 2


The Lost Notebook catalyzes change by providing creative small businesses, organizations and communities with bespoke strategy, research and planning so that they can more effectively realize their visions and affect transformation. 

My work is guided by
these principles:

Create bespoke actionable strategies, tailored to each client’s needs, capacities, and aspirations.

Conduct rigorous quantitative and qualitative research relevant to the issues at hand.

Develop useful, productive, and mutually beneficial relationships with clients and their stakeholders.

Build understanding, trust, and attachment across stakeholder groups.

Think and work hyper-locally while learning and sharing globally.

Panel 3


Lost Notebook tailors its services to each client and their particular challenges.

I look forward to working with you.
