About / Contact

I am a writer, trainer, and facilitator specializing in creativity and creative problem solving. My work is to help people and companies reach their creative potential.

Here are some of the ways I do that:

OmniSkills, LLC, my training and facilitation company, helps companies discover and mine their greatest source of untapped potential: the creativity of their people.

ICSC Press (part of the International Center for Studies in Creativity and SUNY Buffalo State), where I am the managing editor, gives voice to those who wish to write about creativity and creative process.

David Isabella is the protagonist in my forthcoming series of mystery novels. (Click that link to read the first chapter.)

Author’s Lab, a new venture in coaching and mentoring, helps others to write the best books they can and ready them for publication.
