    Speaking, Coaching and Consulting

    Let's do this together.

    Whether it's creating high performance cultures, maximizing impact with limited resources or just helping a team get unstuck, I've spent the majority of my life immersed in empowering owners and teams to thrive.


    With earned degrees in business and philosophy, 15 years educating and helping build several ventures, I've fallen in love with the business of creativity. In the process, I've also worked with some great companies, including Adobe, WHCC, Engage Summits & Random House.

    A business book that starts with the creative first.

    Seth Godin describes Fast Track as "a priceless gift… offering advice on how to make a living in world where everyone has a camera."


    But, you don't need to be a photographer to benefit from these ideas. It's actually about who you are as a creative, regardless of the type of creativity business you're running.


    Fast Track Photographer is available wherever fine books are sold.

    Build a successful creativity venture from the ground up.

    Once you've figured out who you are (see above), you need to decide where you're going. That's what this unorthodox business planning book is all about. It is written specifically to complement Fast Track Photographer.
