Living the dream job of managing the Cooperative Grocer Network.
Started working in food co-ops while still in college in 1974. First at a small food co-op in St. Paul, Minnesota, then with DANCe, one of the warehouses until the mid 80s. Eventually started Triangle Park Creative in 1989, a graphic design company that works with economic, environmental, and social sustainability oriented enterprises like co-ops and nonprofits.
Before taking on CGN, was publisher of Cooperative Grocer magazine. Currently enjoying my 15th year on the board of Seward Community Co-op in Minneapolis.
Coolest co-op thing: winner of the Howard Bowers Fund's Co-op Service Award in 2009.
