About Me

I’m a consultant and coach who helps leaders and organizations build strategies that transform their culture and employees. I’m fueled by a dedication to helping develop stronger relationships between leaders and their employees. I offer consulting and coaching on the importance of culture, putting employees first and the role leaders play in accomplishing both.

My favorite question for clients is, “How can I help you?” I use the answer to help leaders develop people-centered strategies they can implement right away. 

I bring a diverse background to consulting, influenced by past experiences with small companies, global organizations, and government sectors. These previous engagements range from one-on-one coaching sessions, to multi-year company engagements. 

I authored “The Success of Failure,” a coming-of-age fable about learning from mistakes to become the person you were meant to be. You can also find me as a keynote speaker discussing employee engagement, HR, and leadership.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Illinois, and an MBA from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business. I’m certified as a coach in Emotional Intelligence (EQ-i 2.0® and EQ 360®), and I am an adjunct professor and leadership coach at Butler University’s MBA program. I also serve the community at HEAR Indiana and live near Indianapolis with my wife and three children.


Even as leaders, the

thoughts and beliefs we

have about ourselves

can hold us back

from our day-to-day life.

The Success of Failure provides a path to allow any leader, young or experienced, to learn how to pick ourselves back up and be stronger than before.

"The Success of Failure puts a human perspective on lessons that
apply to the entry-level manager up to the CEO. The book features
relatable characters that inspire thoughtful change in both behavior
and mindset. It’s a must-read for anyone who wants to improve
themselves and the people they lead.
