I coach and mentor individual leaders and teams to grow into more conscious expressions of their leadership and cultures for the benefit of all stakeholders. I offer executive coaching, customized retreats, facilitation for teams to get more aligned, and experiential adventures for renewal and inspiration.

I have helped clients in Canada, the US and Asia in identifying greater meaning in their lives and work, overcoming modern constraints and barriers, navigating organizational crisis, working through conflicting business partnerships, and actualizing increasing authentic and conscious versions of themselves. Presence, compassion and practical wisdom continue to be the basis of my work.
I am known known for developing my own and others' leadership in unconventional ways including intentionally living homelessness, following a calling to undertake a 68-day ancestral pilgrimage during winter on the Appalachian trail, and taking clients on pilgrimage walks with no money and identification as a means to deepen humility, creativity and self-awareness.

I have published peer reviewed articles on coaching and leadership and taught university courses on leadership at Concordia University, Korea University and Hongik University. I am the author of two books: Stories of Sovereign Man and Walk of Life: A Pilgrimage in Search of Roots, Healing and Inner Truth.
