A bit about Me

A public speaker since high school graduation 18 years ago, I've spoken on a wide variety of business and personal development topics. I have been honored to train and address a wide variety of top professionals through the years, including Fortune 500 executives and CEOs of VC-backed companies, thousands of Millennial high performers, plus college and graduate students, among others.

With a breadth and depth of experience in 5 separate industries, including academia (neuroscience), law, finance, tech and coaching/consulting, I bring no-nonsense, hands-on leadership and business experience to everything I do. From consulting Fortune 500 corporations to working in the startup trenches to teaching in the classroom, I've had the chance to teach and learn from thousands of the best and brightest leaders around the world. My current focus is consulting, speaking and writing.

I am happily married to a brilliant French engineer (and fabulous chef). We have 2 daughters and live in (and love) Brooklyn, even if we enjoy traveling all over the world and tasting new cuisines. The blessing of my business is the opportunity it gives for collaborating and creating with remarkable clients (and friends) the world over. Outside of my client work, I'm an obsessive reader of many disciplines and greatly enjoy writing (both non-fiction and fiction) and have published two novels and a series of poems, among others.
