I believe in the inherent capacity of people and in the positive impact of choice and voice on their growth and development. My mission
: To help elite artists and builders create the lives that they want, articulating their purpose and honing their practices.
With a background in high-performing schools — as a classroom teacher, athletics coach, dean of students, and director of student leadership — I'm an educator at my core. In my coaching practice, respect for the learner, admiration for teams, and engagement with the learning process have primacy.
Studying at the University of Virginia, I concentrated on East Asian history and played lacrosse as a member of the men’s varsity team. Winning a National Championship with my teammates in 2006 helped shape my understanding of team excellence. Also formatively, I earned a Master’s Degree in Independent School Leadership from the Klingenstein Center at Columbia University’s Teachers College in 2015.
Remarkable teachers and mentors have punctuated my training –– for example:
•Exeter Humanities Institute
•Stand & Deliver Group
(Mentors in Violence Prevention)
(Transforming Your Business with AI)
I earned my ICF ACSTH certificate with Damian Goldvarg
, MCC, in 2021, and completed a specialization in coaching teams in the fall of 2022. I am a credentialed Associate Certified Coach
with the ICF, as well as a Birkman Certified Professional.
I have the fortune of working with remarkable clients around the world.
