What most people know about me is that I have spent 20 years doing software, started 2 for-profit and 1 non-profit organization, and have spent 9 years doing photography.
What most people don’t know about me is that I have spent a lifetime staying invisible. I have used my computer and camera as tools to hide behind.
As an introvert, I have spent so much of my time hiding that I now see where you are powerful even when you cannot. Looking back, it feels like I have been a coach my whole life.
I combine my experiences as a techie, engineer, 3x entrepreneur, leader in companies like Yahoo and Booking.com, and as a poet and photographer – to help leaders merge the science of doing business with the art of leadership.
I help leaders who know deep inside that there is more to them achieve their wildest dreams while riding the waves of life and having fun and making a meaningful impact in the process.
Starting in 2020, I have taken a stand to:-
✅ Help everyone show up as a leader – to create results that matter while having fun and building strong relationships.
✅ Enable workplaces that nourish people rather than make them sick – while producing powerful results – not just for us but also for our future generations.
✅ Create a world where we can discuss any issue with each other with love – as comrades, not as adversaries.
If you relate to the above, message me. I don’t bite 😉
