Working with me means you have a seasoned sounding board at the end of any phone call or email. You aren’t just a client. Your business—and my ability to support and enhance it - is a reflection of our work. Our relationship is a true partnership.
I leverage decades of work with iconic companies, and an agile approach, to remove obstacles standing in the way of growth. With your industry and product or service specific knowledge – and my ability to accelerate growth, we chart the path forward quickly.
In addition to working with clients, I am the COO of Body Squad, a growing pacesetter in the performance and recovery space; a former client where my role steadily increased to point where I lead our national growth strategy.
As a business owner, the heavy lifting comes from thinking about the day-to-day while contemplating decisions about the future. I’m thinking about all that with you. Together, we create more economy for decision making, for processes and for monetizing all that you do.
What has evolved is akin to a heavyweight wing-man to founders and CEOs. Basically, anyone with a shit ton of responsibility, and a sense of optimism, but also with a lack of bandwidth. (The rest you can see on LinkedIn if you're really interested) In my experience, the way a deal starts is usually the way it goes – meaning the people dictate the process, not the other way around. That’s why I do business with people, not projects.
One of the great things I learned as a Hollywood agent is the mechanics of deal making, so that you're negotiating on your client’s behalf for the best possible outcome. The unfortunate part of that culture (back then) is that intentions weren’t always golden, it's highly transactional at a certain point, and there's typically not a sense of “how can everyone feel good about this in the end.” At the very core, that’s my bio.
I studied international business in London, graduated with a business degree from The Ohio State University, am angel investor and served as Co-chairman of Melissa’s House. I have written for several publications, performed stand-up at the Improv in Hollywood, and speak at universities about business and leadership. I love going to college football games and spending time with my family.
