Dr. Sharon Washington
As a writer and anthropologist, Dr. Sharon Washington has traveled the world exploring human capacity as imagination. Her first jobs include writing and editing for the Dallas Times Herald, NY Newsday, and Akron Beacon Journal. Two of those papers have succumbed to the inevitable future of newspapers, which is disappearing as fast as ice cream in a hot sunny Texas town being eaten by flies. Her book, The Educational Contract, is about some of the most dilapidated educational communities in the US, southern Africa and Latin America. Sharon’s novels personalize her travels into a foray of adventures into past lives crisscrossing time with the present.
Sharon’s industry knowledge spans her anthropological career, and has grown a network of both colleagues and partners in the U.S. and abroad, and she brings those connections to bear in her client relationships. Having spent the bulk of her career focused primarily on the U.S., Sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America, she has gained a significant level of industry knowledge and experience in specific issue areas including economic security, media influences, social science, education, data analysis, and organizational sustainability and management. As a writer and editor, academically trained as an anthropologist, Sharon brings skill and meaning to all of her clients.

Otis Fuqua helps thought leaders break large ideas down, and package them in a fun-to-read, easy-to-understand way. Working with CEOs of large companies, scientists at the cutting edge of their fields, and industry-leading experts in law, fitness, and economic development, Otis has helped our clients by ghostwriting their book or book proposal, editing their work, or assisting them in finding critical avenues of inquiry.
Based in New York City, he fuels his work with equal parts of passion for climate and social justice, and child-like wonder for the magic of storytelling. When not working for us, he’s likely writing fiction behind a mug of super-charged coffee, running along the East River, or playing Dungeons and Dragons.
Unsurprisingly, he enjoys a good book, and can’t stop talking about Kurt Vonnegut (ask him about Cat’s Cradle, if you have ten hours).
