I work with high-performing people who want rich, hand-crafted, well-lived lives; who want to be charged with confidence and enthusiasm in their life's mission; and who want to live their lives unleashed.
If you’re not living life full out, I want a talk with you. It’s my mission to get people off the sidelines and into the action. I’ve been in the thick of it since I was a kid—in my teens I hitchhiked to Alaska and lived in a cabin on the banks of the Tanana River; in my twenties, I lived in Italy, crossed the Sahara and the jungles and savannas of Central and East Africa; in my thirties, I sailed around the world (alone); in my forties, I wrote novels no one would publish; and in my fifties I bicycled the spine of the Rockies from Alaska to Mexico. I’ve worked on the Alaska Pipeline, as an environmental lobbyist in the Alaska Legislature, and run a storied environmental organization fighting (successfully) to protect Alaska’s rainforests. Several years ago, I moved to New York City to dig deep into leadership development, coaching, and because I wanted more frenzy in my life. I now coach leaders in conservation and social-change movements as well as people who want to live rich, full-throated, hand-crafted lives.
