Hello. I’m an educator, coach, and project builder based in NYC.
I help people and organizations get where they want to go.
Creating environments that build skills, trust, knowledge, connections, and ideas.
I facilitate workshops, lead short courses, train trainers, design and build long-form programs, and work with companies as an Educator in Residence.
Coaching & Advisory
I partner with smart creatives, emerging leaders, and talent-driven organizations as a go-to sounding board, advisor, and performance and leadership coach.
I design and produce content that’s diverse, connected, culturally relevant, and often irreverent – all with a purpose to educate, inform, and entertain.
It consists of courses, podcasts, articles, guidebooks, videos, workshops, and the odd mixtape.
Here are a few of the companies I’ve worked with: across sectors from fashion to financial services, media to manufacturing, and with teams graduate trainees through to C-suite executives.
IBM | GE | McKinsey | Stella McCartney | UBS | Mastercard | NYC.gov | Warner Music | SXSW | New York Climate Week | Betaworks
Those are the bigger names. I’ve also partnered with dozens of small giants and emerging independents: from DJs to design agencies; music supervisors to data scientists; nonprofits to cannabis cultivators.
