I am on a mission
I’m a coach and teacher whose purpose is to bring more courage into the world. I’m committed to helping people break through their own constraints and live powerfully—and with ease—from a place of purpose, presence, self-trust, creativity, and courage.
My clients include founders, CEOs, senior leaders, and creatives across a variety of industries. I coach them one-on-one, and in some cases support their teams through leadership development and offsites. I also produce the weekly "On Courage" podcast.
Previously, I was a general manager in the mobility space, having led teams of more than 100+ people in operations, marketing, and analytics. I graduated from Yale University with a degree in English Literature, and I earned my MBA from Yale School of Management. I’m also a certified coach through the Coactive Training Institute.
I live in Los Angeles with my husband and 7 year-old son.Let's Connect
The stakes are personal for me
Over the last decade, I achieved quite a bit in my life. I set big goals—starting a family, building a successful career, settling in Los Angeles—and I made them happen. I was highly productive, well-rewarded, and had a good life.
Then, I got stuck in my life. I was disillusioned at work as I was navigating family health issues, trying to maintain deep friendships, and suppressing my own needs as a father and husband. While I had been intent on putting myself in a position of increasing opportunity, my world felt like it was shrinking rather than expanding.
Many of us reach this moment.
I won’t say I was living someone else’s dream or that I was asleep at the wheel of my own life. That’s not quite it. I just reached a point when I couldn't see the path forward and didn't have the tools to navigate my own life.
As smart and self-aware as I thought I was, I couldn’t achieve my way out of it. I knew something had to change, but I feared losing my ambition and everything I'd worked hard for.
After a year of struggling—and a stroke of luck—I left my job and took a sabbatical. During that time, I learned how to be unproductive, got reconnected to what I wanted in my life now, and finally understood my purpose. I decided to enroll in coach training and took the steps to create and launch my own business.
Now I’m a coach and teacher helping other people learn the skills I wish I had known earlier so they can go from feeling frustrated and confused to being confident and full of possibility.
When I'm not working
I love spending time with my husband, our son, our dog, and two hamsters.
We live in Los Angeles, and I get to walk my son to school, which is a total joy. A few times a week, I take a spin class, dance class, swim, or go hiking. I guess I like to be in motion.
At home, I’m happy when I’m working on small projects, cooking vegetarian meals, and reading. My parents live in Chicago—where I grew up—but now spend the winters with us here.
I like to keep things simple when I can.
