I’ve lived an eccletic, rich and full life – and I’m passionate about people living their’s.
From pioneering ecommerce in the UK, to democratizing art, to empowering the largest open source community in the world; I’ve done some pretty impressive things by those interested in measuring career success. Little known facts, I also worked on a factory floor for three years making hats, had two failed start-ups, and spent two years racing cars.
And through the high points, and what appear as not so high times, a natural thread ran through my experiences – a dedication to helping others: find their path, create happiness and live their impact.
Two years ago I finally saw this for myself, and became a coach. Every day I set out to create meaningful change by empowering people to live their greatness.
For the first 20 years of my career I built and empowered global teams and communities for: eBay, Mozilla Firefox, Jungle.com, Astia, Gooru and many others, reaching hundreds of millions of users globally through all stages of growth. I founded two consulting practices helping entrepreneurs and communities expand globally, and brought two US based software companies to EMEA.
In 2012 I transformed my career to leadership development, which is my passion. My career has been rich and full, and without exception – building deep rooted connection and meaning has always been my mission.
Here’s a comprehensive list of my past experiences. You can also view my LinkedIn profile for more information.
