With over 25 years of branding, marketing and agency management experience, I partner with entrepreneurial and corporate coaching clients, to help them be more authentic and effective in their jobs and in their lives.
My coaching model centers on short-term engagements, focused on specific, actionable improvements that drive personal and company performance, with a strong track record of working with clients who operate at the intersection of art and commerce.
I specialize in “nurturing curiosity” -- tapping into clients’ natural desire to explore, grow and create, both individually and within their organizations. Coming from the mad world of New York advertising, I have evolved from being an ad man who knows all the answers, to recognizing that most leaders are fully capable of making the right decisions -- particularly when they have a supportive, collaborative and creative-minded coach working with them to get past their blind spots and see new possibilities.
Prior to beginning my executive coaching practice, I was known for managing fast-growing and profitable creative service companies, delivering year-over-year top line and bottom line growth. Within WPP's Grey Advertising, I built a New York-based branding and design company from the ground up, and managed a sales promotion network across multiple offices. At MDC, I ran the West Coast office of a global social media agency.
I know how to consistently bring out the best in people and teams, inspire original and bold ideas, deliver high-ROI value to clients, and cultivate meaningful partnerships.
Living in Southern California, I engage with clients via video-conference, and travel extensively with my marketing consultancy and executive coaching work.
