About Me

I became a Career Transition Coach for managers and executives because I love helping people and sharing my expertise on how to find the best job.​ After graduating from West Point and serving as an Army Intelligence Officer, I was hired to work in over 10 cities on 3 continents for large companies like IBM and Expedia as well as for several startups.​While mastering the "Art of Career Transition", I've helped many people get new jobs and careers.​ Today, I coach people who are transitioning to a new job or career on how to find their ideal job and get hired.

What I learned from President Reagan

When I was at West Point, I was the only cadet who got a private meeting with former President Ronald Reagan at his office.

He gave me a valuable lesson in life.

I share this lesson with each of my coaching clients.
