This website is dedicated to helping people make more ethically justified decisions—and thereby live better, more integrated lives.
How we approach and make decisions is directly tied to how we understand what life is all about.
This includes how we understand the meaning of our relationships to one other.
It also includes how we understand our relationships to the natural world.
I am the Lead Ethicist and Executive Director of Ethics and Diversity Services for Fraser Health, a large regional health authority in Southern British Columbia, Canada. I spend a lot of time helping individuals, teams, and organizations think through difficult choices.
Ethics is about thinking carefully about what should matter in life and then acting to bring these values alive. This is best done with other people.
Through my study and work with a variety of academic, professional, and civil society organizations, and with the help of many, many people, I have been involved in the creation of a number of decision-support tools and resources. While I work in health care, I believe the thinking behind the tools and the tools themselves can be helpful in a variety of contexts.
This website is a vehicle for providing access to these tools. I hope this will make a small contribution to how we deal with the issues we face every day.

I hope you will find the website useful and thought-stimulating.
