I inspire purpose-driven leaders to bring their vision to life. I do that by giving them the clarity they need to make great decisions. I am a certified coaching partner to business and nonprofit executives. For 10 years, I was president of a closely-held, for-profit enterprise and led that company back to profitability during a period of tremendous market uncertainty. As an entrepreneur, I helped launch a successful human resource management company. For over five years I served as the governing body president of a nonprofit charter school. Prior to my business career, I practiced business law at two international law firms; I remain licensed to practice law in New Mexico. I am a lifelong learner. My various formal credentials and education include the following:
- Certified Business and Non-Profit Coach, Gravitas Impact Premium Coaches (July 2018 – present)
- Certified Business and Non-Profit Coach, Gazelles International (October 2013 – June 2018)
- Certified WHY Institute Coach
- Juris Doctor, Georgetown University Law Center
- B.A., Economics (cum laude), Georgetown University
I live with my wife and family in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
