Keynote speaker, author, coach and consultant for some of the most courageous people in business.

After university I had no idea what I wanted to do. Working in a restaurant was the best business school for me. I’ve struggled financially. I’ve struggled with my confidence. Felt like an impostor. Lived with a family history of Huntington’s disease (my Mom passed away at 71 and my brother at age 59). Was diagnosed with type one diabetes at age thirty. I have experienced the loss of great friends that have passed away, way too soon.

I’ve have had the privilege of coaching people that have dramatically changed their lives (don’t take my word for it, take theirs). I am relentlessly curious, love learning, reading, hanging out with interesting people; believe in real conversations, big dreams, having fun, love watching and playing hockey and relaxing on the beach with my wonderful wife.

I LOVE coaching people that have BIG dreams and the courage to go after them.

I have learned that there are lots of unknowns in life, but one thing I know for sure, at the end of this dance I want to be able to look myself in the mirror and say I that lived a life true to myself and had a lasting impact on others.
