Experienced professionals supporting small to mid-size businesses, political campaigns and nonprofits.
Our thoughtful and creative approach to solving problems stems from our careers in development and advocacy. Together, we have a broad range of expertise and a tremendous desire to do good work. Over the years we've found ourselves at the table making strategic decisions with big consequences. The "table" has been at the White House as an advocacy expert, along the Appalachian Trail supporting the protection of a large swath of old-growth forest and on the tough calls strategizing with execs of a Fortune 100 business regarding a $13 million product launch.
Perhaps you need a project managed, a brand polished, a political campaign strategy vetted or funds raised. Let's start a conversation about the meaningful acts that will transform your good intentions into great work.

Marty has spent his career helping others. His early days found him teaching in Kingston, Jamaica as a Jesuit volunteer then as a grants coordinator for a large environmental foundation. He then created the first statewide river group in Georgia. However, his two decades of work as an Executive Director—of a lean but mighty nonprofit dedicated to "building networks of people to move change forward"—offers him the opportunity to help on a global scale.
