My Approach

I'm a common sense coach. Let's lay
out your goals, set your intentions
and outcomes. We'll develop metrics
to keep you on track. I can help you
navigate the curves inherent in the road,
and get to your destination.

I've worked in Fortune 100 corporations
and in seed stage startups, and everything in
between. I keep returning to the excitement,
the energy, and the brutal meritocracy of
startups. I am honored to counsel and advise
entrepreneurs, who create jobs.
