I’m committed to empowering human potential, my own included. I’m a natural connector and catalyst, of people and ideas. From my own journey of exploring my creative expression, I can relate to the deep satisfaction, self-confidence, and societal good that arises when you can remove the blockers (whether emotional, logistical, or financial) to being able to express the compassion that lives in your heart tangibly out in the world.


Whether struggling to scale your business, tackling a need you see in your community, or aligning your philanthropic/investment capital with your personal values and interests, all these paths begin with caring about something enough to want to try to help. I can help you convert that feeling of CARE into effective ACTION.


I thrive in navigating the ambiguity and risk, and exciting possibility at the early stages of launching new programs, product lines, businesses, investment deals, and career/industry pivots. With my deep compassion for helping others (Enneagram #2) and tenacious strategic creativity, I want to journey with you to catalyze your ideas and impact in the world.
