But, I’ve had 9 lives.


I’m an educator-designer-journalist-filmmaker-artist. The convergence of these pursuits has led me to dedicate my career to bringing creative leadership and innovation to the world. As Senior Director for Cooper Professional Education, I manage Cooper’s training center, overseeing curriculum development, teaching, mentoring, and building community. In this role, I partner with thousands of top companies, from Clorox to Wikipedia, to supercharge performance and create delight. Whether I’m coaching, speaking, or telling stories, my goal is to ask tough questions, inspire curiosity, and change what’s possible in the minds and lives of the people and teams I collaborate with. Here's how:


I challenge assumptions and expose people to new paradigms that turn their perspectives upside-down. I use a variety of techniques to help people see their processes, their environments, and themselves anew.


I make education and dialogue more engaging, applicable, and meaningful by pulling techniques from storytelling, improv, art, and more. I take a multi-disciplinary approach, knowing that learning and inspiration are triggered in many different ways.


I help people discover the creative talents within themselves, shifting their inner monologue from “I’m safe” to “I’m uncomfortable” to “This idea is so crazy it just might work.” Creativity is accessible to anyone with the right coaching.
