I Help Leaders Get Better

Who I Am

I am an author, leadership coach and learning and development leader. I help people in a variety of roles understand and apply the principles of effective leadership in practical, actionable ways.

My Current Role

I lead the learning and development initiatives at Saddle Creek Logistics Services in Lakeland, Florida, which has been ranked as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America by Inc. magazine.

What I Do Best

I enjoy being with people, asking life-changing questions and listening deeply. I help leaders develop the soft skills that make the difference between leadership activity and leadership excellence. My greatest reward comes from looking for clues to help people sharpen their influence and achieve their dreams.

My Background

I am a Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) through the Association for Talent Development and also have a diverse background that includes over a decade of experience as an aerospace structural design engineer, a seminary degree and 15+ years of experience as a vocational pastor.

In My Free Time

I like to spend my spare time cycling, reading and being realigned by my faith and spiritual community.

What I Do


I specialize in working with people one-on-one to help them accelerate their personal and professional development and crystallize their thoughts, strategies and goals.

The ultimate outcome of engaging with a coach is that you achieve clarity on what you will do, how you will do it and what outcome you expect to achieve. If you’ve never experienced coaching before, you owe it to yourself to try it.


I am available for keynote events and for guest speaker engagements. I look forward to helping your group get as energized as I am about leadership, self-development and teamwork.

What We Can Do Together

Make You a Better Leader

I will help you increase the level of influence you have with the people you work with and help you strengthen the most critical relationships in your life. They might be called soft skills, but good communication and relationship skills can take you from good to great in the marketplace, in your home, in your marriage or in the community.

Build Your Team

No person is an island. When you learn how to assemble an effective team and be an effective leader, you can achieve and influence things you couldn’t have imagined possible. Coaches inspire vision and provide education, guidance and direction. I look forward to working with you and your team.
