The things people know about me...

I have accomplished great things.

I enjoyed a rewarding career at IBM and retired as an Executive after 33 years.

I was married to the most amazing woman on the planet.

I risked everything and came out as gay when I was 45 after 25 years of marriage and two beautiful children.

The risk paid off, and my family, life and career thrived.

I am currently married to the most amazing man on earth. My former wife began our wedding ceremony with a prayer and one of my sons was my best man.

I currently live in NYC and Rehoboth Beach, and travel the world.

I am a former member of the Board of Directors of the International Coaching Federation NYC Chapter.

I am coached by a thought-leader known around the world for his brilliant coaching.

I am a trusted advisor, consultant and coach to the most successful people.

I coach people who are not afraid to take risks.

What people don't know about me:

I do all of this while seeing myself as an imposter.

Feeling like an imposter is far from an excuse not to succeed.

In fact, it tells us exactly where we will accomplish the most. 

You are being driven to do what you feel is impossible for you to achieve.

Greatness comes from daring to do the impossible.

Authentic Client Results

Top performers work well with me. I inspire them to great heights. I met Karin when she had just graduated college where she studied opera. She had just won the coveted Jenny Lind Song Competition, which allowed her to travel the world and sing to audiences across the globe. Karin was uncertain about what direction to take her career. She could not see beyond the borders of her beloved country, Sweden. 

While in Sweden, I watched her on stage at the Royal Opera House.  She was performing alone on stage, creating the magic only great performers can, and I knew immediately she would be an opera star. 

Karin and I worked together over two years' time. At the beginning, Karin was hesitant to be so bold as to say she would sing on the world stage. Early on she said to me, "I only want to sing. It does not matter if one person is listening or thousands". That's when I said, "if it doesn't matter then let's shoot for thousands". 

Karen has performed title roles in New York City and around the world. Last year she was awarded a full scholarship to The Juilliard School's Artist Diploma in Opera Studies program.



Successful business owners look to me for leadership insight and a better way to communicate and connect with their employees. I met Stuart when he feared he was going to have to shut down his design company that had been recognized for innovative ideas for over 20 years. He sensed he was frustrated and angry more than he wished to be.  He thought it was because his employees were not contributing as much as they once did and his clients were not returning his calls as often as before. He had an overwhelming feeling he was no longer relevant. 

It did not take me long to realize that the reverse was true. He was telling himself a story that the competition of younger and more talented design firms was making him irrelevant.  He felt powerless to do anything about it, which lead to him distance himself from his design team and his clients. 

Stuart learned to lead his company from the bottom up. He became more trusting of his team and was more willing to share the burden of running the business with them. He allowed his need for control to fade away and he began to welcome new ideas. His team responded with renewed enthusiasm for their work. They began solving problems that used to keep Stuart up at night. In fact, the progress of our coaching was measured by the reduction of sleepless nights. 

Stuart also began to change his way of thinking about clients. Instead of finding his clients' requests for last minute changes in design frustrating and annoying, he began to look at those requests as opportunities to please his clients. He began to welcome difficult conversations with his clients because they gave him the opportunity to respond to the clients' needs. Again, putting his needs aside allowed him to connect with clients more productively.



Aditya and I began coaching when he was a successful software engineer in a large corporation. His corporate future was ahead of him. He could have easily climbed the ladder of success but he was feeling reluctant to take the steps necessary. He felt there was something holding him back. More so, he felt there was something missing.

My question to him was, "If money were not a worry what would you do to bring you joy?". I had no idea what his answer would be, but to my surprise his answer came quickly - "I would travel the world!".

That question and that answer were all that was needed to release the energy required for him to find a way to make that happen. All I said was, "What is the first step you can take to make that happen?" From that moment to today, Aditya and his wife are living their dream life. 

They travel the world giving empowering speeches to other software engineers, helping them find their paths to happiness. They both have thriving coaching practices with clients around the globe.
