Awaken the Creative Leader Within

I do creative leadership coaching, community building, and new paradigm business marketing group, but this is where it all begins!

The next journey begins May 17th.


Learn more about what's included on the registration page.


Creative Leadership Coaching

What sets your soul on fire? What service brings you joy? If you were dropped in the middle of a new country with $5 in your pocket, could you start over, have gratitude, and feel prepared to rebuild a fulfilling life come hell or high water?

I help people to set a new foundation in life - since the old one is crumbling (finally). This new foundation helps you to live with joy because you feel clear and capable in your ability to help humanity rise to its extraordinary potential at "work" and in your "community," by mastering a transformative relationship with yourself.

You don't need to be Einstein, or Michael Jordan, or to build an empire. In fact, please no more empires...


Empires are so old paradigm and obnoxiously insecure masculine. Real brilliance lies ahead.

We look at:

  • The extraordinary big puzzle

  • Your extraordinary puzzle piece

  • Growing the extraordinary basics of a powerful creative leader who can continue to transform and cooperate in ever-changing environments

To get started, I recommend participating in my group coaching journey, Awaken the Creative Leader Within.

It's time to reimagine what's possible and awaken our extraordinary human potential.

What is the Age of Disruption, and why does it matter? Since business innovation theory and the flashy tech industry snatched up the word, we've become desensitized to the weight and breadth of its meaning... but with the intensity of change in all facets of life happening at an unprecedented rate, it’s time we evolve the dialogue on what disruption really is and how to best prepare for it.


This is a stimulating, heart-felt presentation on how a new age will require us to step into new way of thinking, being and leading in this world... and how three simple keys can unlock extraordinary even in the most challenging times.

Founder & Host



a web series

A comedy-drama web series about how an odd ball pair of millennial women decide to join forces and become game-changers in tech innovation.


Once upon a time I was a young "creative type" from north shore Chicago suburbia. A curious being, I wanted to experience everything and know what it was like to be everyone... so I became an actor. But the more I connected to others - their love, pain, fear, and a deep longing to feel something extraordinary… the more it allowed me to connect to my own love, pain,  fear, and a deep longing to feel something extraordinary.


And so I was inspired to go on a quest to understand what extraordinary really means…


and how to awaken it in each of us.
