“Of all the titles I’ve been privileged to have, ‘Dad’ has always been the best.” –Ken Norton, American Heavyweight Boxer
I am approachable and inspiring. Sometimes I cuss. And, more than anything, I care about how we show up authentically and make a difference in our world.
Even before my daughter was born, I knew I wanted to impact her development and truly partner with her mother to give our daughter all the tools to lead a strong, stable, and beautiful life. I also wanted the gift of spending valuable time with her, getting to know her and allowing her the chance to truly know her father. Having served nine years as an active duty Marine, I wasn’t necessarily connected to my vulnerability – but I knew to create this relationship with my daughter, I would have to man up and get in touch with my vulnerable side – and I couldn’t be more grateful that I did. It has allowed me the chance to form a bond with my daughter that has created a powerful connection between us and has showed her that a man doesn’t always have to be about machismo and bravado.
I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, hold a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) Credential from the International Coach Federation, have an MBA and a Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership, and more than 25 years of experience in the military, public, and private sectors. I also volunteer my time as a coach and facilitator for Boot Camp for New Dads – a program created to help men prepare for the adventure of fatherhood. Since becoming a father, I have learned that my gift as a speaker and a coach is best used to help other individuals discover and craft their own legacies so they can impact their world.
As a speaker, I am dynamic and engaging. As a coach, I am completely authentic – which means no bullshit and telling you the hard truths, when warranted. I will be 100% committed to you and expect you to be 100% committed to yourself. When there is failure, we’ll learn from it. When there is success, we’ll celebrate. Regardless of what happens, we’ll explore and navigate this adventure together. One of the highest compliments one of my clients paid me was when they described me as a cool cross between Professor Dumbledore and Rambo. Interpret that how you will…it still puts a huge smile on my face.
