I am a professional life, executive, and career coach who has spent 15+ years helping high powered professionals maximize their strengths, reach their potential, and achieve their goals.  I began my coaching career working exclusively with high ranking police, fire, and public safety officials looking to improve their leadership skills, and take their career & overall quality of life to the next level.  After completing my career as an executive fire chief, I dedicated my life and coaching practice to empowering other professionals to move from a life of success to significance and ultimately help them create the life they want to live.

After completing my master’s degree in professional counseling and working as a counselor, I quickly became disillusioned with counseling and therapy in general as it centered around the past and offered no real solutions for people to move forward.  Being a goal oriented, outcome driven person, the coaching process and NLP resonated with me personally and professionally.  I have since left counseling and focus solely on coaching, as it’s empowering and future-focused.  I enhanced my coaching skills by completing the NLP practitioner, master practitioner, and life coach certification programs.  I am also a member in good standing with the International Professional Life Coach Association.

I currently reside in Phoenix, AZ with my wife of 26 years, April.  Together, we have two adult sons and are currently raising two Pug puppies.  In my free time, I enjoy hiking, biking, rowing, travel, and am an avid yoga practitioner.  I’m also a pretty decent chef!

I currently offer individual and group coaching sessions as well as NLP based corporate training sessions.
