An Executive Coach with Firsthand Senior Leadership Experience
I understand the intensity of leading complex businesses because I’ve literally done it myself.
As the former CFO of Microsoft North America, I bring real-world perspective to the ever-increasing demands of my clients’ leadership challenges.
As an executive coach, I combine sharp insight and impactful methods with a mindset of compassion, curiosity, and courage.
And as a husband and father of four, I know what it means to juggle a leadership career with devotion to the people who matter most - all while finding joy in the journey.
Executives hire me when they’re scaling the corporate ladder and feeling the pressure. I help leaders succeed by cultivating emotional intelligence, unconditional responsibility, and a growth mindset. I'm passionate about coaching executives to accelerate their success by finding their own personal center of mindful curiosity.
Having worked worldwide and lived in Latin America for 12 years, I hold a strong personal stake in diversity and inclusivity — and I work continually to expand my understanding of people, places, and cultures around the world.
Family, spirituality, and community are central to my way of living. When I'm not working one-on-one with senior executives, I enjoy cycling, skiing, and planning the next adventure with family and friends.
