I'm a guy who likes to learn...
I have spent the last ten years working and living in the U.S., Asia, Europe, Britain, Scandinavia and the Middle East. I specialize in leadership development for senior executives and helping organizations build resilience in times of change. Before joining CCL® I ran my own consulting company and spent the last ten years delivering leadership programs for senior leaders around the world. Some of my clients include: NASA, TDBank, Deloitte, Red Bull, Minnesota Wild Hockey, Kellogg’s, Qantas and Comcast.


I’ve worked across industries including; engineering, energy, law, banking, accounting, construction and television.

I am fresh out of the Center for Creative Leadership where I pioneered equations around change, vertical development initiatives, and ground-breaking resilience work. I helped build C.C.L. Texas. But, now?

Right now my team and I are rapidly growing a new territory out of old mindsets and experiences. We are helping organizations who are going through significant change to build resilience from the top of the organization out to the front lines. 

Speaking of Education...
I hold a Master’s degree from Harvard University where I focused most of my studies on leadership and learning. I have two undergraduate degrees from Otago University (New Zealand) in business administration and physical education.


To get the best view of my thinking read my latest whitepapers.
