More about me:
My work has been significantly shaped by the insights and support from my wife Kalyn Falk who is a spiritual director, retreat leader, trainer and incredible mother/resource to our two boys Jase and Noah and the ever growing circle of others that we call family.
I love landscaping (gardening during the summer and ice sculptures during winter). Sometimes I get an idea for a project and it is like an itch that just wont go away until I find a way to make it happen.
And if the wind if blowing the best place to be is out kite boarding!
What I love about being part of the FS team:
I love the passion and high level of competence that the team brings to some very challenging situations combined with a good dose of lighthearted fun.
A few books I would recommend:
Patrick Lencioni’s (2012) “The advantage: Why organizational health trumps everything else in business” – one of the best professional resources I have found.
Jean Vanier’s (1999) “Becoming Human” – great insights into what it means to be alive.
And, of course:
Kalyn Falk’s (2013) “Mother of the year and other elusive awards: Misadventures in autism” – an intimate window into the joys, challenges and shenanigans that we have experienced parenting Noah.
