While I’m a professional coach since 2005, I actually have been coaching for decades. In 2004, I realized that coaching as a career was my true calling. I sought formal coaching training at the International Coaching Academy (“ICA”), and completed my training in May of 2007, graduating as a Certified Professional Coach. I’m also a member of the International Coach Federation (“ICF”) and the International Association of Coaches (“IAC”).
A long-time believer in personal transformation and development, I’ve participated in the Landmark Forum, the Sterling Men’s Weekend, the Anthony Robins Weekend, and The Millionaire Mind Intensive, among other programs. In 2001 I successfully completed the “Body for Life” challenge.
In addition to coach training, I have many years of experience in business, sales and network marketing, as well as performing as a singer, guitarist and comedian. I’m a member of the Screen Actors Guild (you can hear me sing as the voice of actor Michael Rispoli in the movie “Two Family House”, and was a semi-finalist for the “Andy Kaufman Award” in the New York Comedy Festival in 2004 and 2005.
“Corner,” my weekly radio show/podcast (currently on BlogTalkRadio), where I’ve interviewed coaches, thought leaders, social media gurus and others who “touch, move and inspire” has been downloaded some 80,000 times.
My original intention in life was to be a writer, and I studied English at Lehman College in the Bronx, New York and then journalism at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland. It’s come full circle, as I’m now writing a book, which will be published in 2014.
My passions include biking, singing, playing guitar, and learning new things, and, of course, helping people live their passions!
I am based in New York City, in Manhattan.
