A little about my background...
Middle brother of 3 boys born and raised in Flint, Michigan. Father and Grandfather owned a steel manufacturing plant in the city that my father later sold and began a Turnaround business investing in struggling manufacturing firms throughout the region. I walked factory floors and talked shop since before I can remember.
Following this love of business (or was it family?) I received my BA in Business Administration & Finance at the University of Vermont and first worked in the Banking and Finance industry before joining the Internet revolution where I was fortunate enough to be an integral part of this vibrant boom in corporate innovation and creativity, including an IPO with 24/7 Media, a big boom and bust with Affinia, and a steady winner in SchoolFusion.
It was at this time that I began studying Internal Arts of the Far East including the martial arts of Taijiquan, Bagua, Hsing-I, and Northern Shaolin Kung Fu, as well as healing arts including Qi Gong and Yoga. After the Internet bubble burst, I took advantage of the opportunity to test these skills professionally, first as an acupressurist and later as a fully licensed physician practicing holistic healthcare with Traditional Chinese Medicine where my clinical practice was built-on and eventually transformed into a personal and professional coaching platform.
Today I continue to support dynamic professionals and start-up buinesses, as well as individuals in their personal lives as a mentor and coach. I serve on the town's Sustainability Commission and volunteer with the YMCA's Restorative Justive program. Personally, I love spending time outdoors with my lovely wife and two kids. We hike, bike, surf, ski, and take as many adventures to far off places as possible. We adore our community in Marin County, California and are so grateful for the amazing people and places that make this home.
In the long run there are only win-win or lose-lose scenarios... we are in this together.
