What you do matters.

You are one of about eight billion people on the planet. For many, the default experience is feeling lostwandering – “why me?”

I can’t stomach it. I believe we’re meant – perhaps called – to make significant impact through our lives. I’m continually evaluating ways my experience, expertise, and journey will help you create a profoundly meaningful future.

I want you to love your life.

Loving your life starts with courageously identifying the present reality and clearly describing the future. We then take up the daily work of moving toward that future. In my three decades experience, I’ve seen people start side hustles and small businesses, exit businesses, cultivate relationships, and navigate real difficulties.

I’ve been there, done that. I’ve seen success and failure. I’m passionate about helping people get up and lean into each day. Love your journey and who you journey with.

I believe it matters.

how can I help you?

I’m a multi-passionate person, a polymath. I have diverse interests, skillsets, and have implemented across disciplines for three decades. I’m a falcon – flying high, seeing far, coming quickly into the place I’m most effective. I’m like the E.R. doc of business and life: I am interested in helping you, and I probably can. When I can’t, I know thousands of specialists worldwide who will.
