I created a picture-perfect, white-picket-fence nuclear family. Then my life changed: near death illness, life-threatening attack, loss of work and divorce.  In the midst of my own defining moment, I reinvented myself, found my authenticity, came out, and discovered who I am.  I AM a loving father of 4, speaker, trusted confidante, mentor/coach, healer and guide. 
Today, my work focuses on facilitating the discovery of an individual's and organization's compelling purpose, unlocking the possibilities of its vision, developing high potential into self-actualization, and designing transformational change strategies to manifest true being.

As a graduate of Syracuse University School of Architecture with an emphasis on the Human Behavioral Impact on Environments, I advanced my studies at Harvard and The University of California in Business Management and Development. I then trained with the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching and gained my international coach certification through the ICF. In order to expand my delivery approach and subject area expertise, I have also trained in Risk Management, Total Quality Management, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Myers-Briggs Assessment, Reiki, Somato-emotional Release, and am an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner.

Through my work with organizations such as the American Institute of Architects, George Washington University, Hood College, The Department of Defense and The General Services Administration, I have worked with top industry and government leaders, department heads, managers, entry-level personnel and interns to develop and implement highly successful transformation programs. My record is marked by my work with the high profile, post 9/11-attack Pentagon Reconstruction Team to design and facilitate change strategies imperative to foster the multi-disciplined collaboration required to complete this monumental effort.
