I am a catalyst for personal growth. I help my clients find the path towards their dream selves and take the first steps down that path, by working with them to grow in their careers, their work as leaders, or their lives.
I draw upon a wealth of past experiences to be more effective as a coach. I advised the leaders of Google for over ten years, including six years leading business strategy and operations for search ads as the Chief of Staff to the Product VP of AdWords. Before Google, I was an engineer and product manager at several technology startups, learning from different leaders and environments. I have also mentored several MIT entrepreneurs, and serve as an advisory board member of Mills Teacher Scholars, an Oakland educational non-profit.

I am certified as a coach by the International Coach Federation, and also as an Integral Coach, which means that I help clients develop themselves by understanding how all aspects of their life influence how they show up in the world. I trained in the Immunity to Change™ methodology by Kegan and Lahey to understand better what hidden assumptions hold people back from their goals. Lastly, I am certified with the Leadership Circle Profile 360 assessment so that you can discover what your leadership strengths are, and what might be holding you back.

I'm an avid skier and biker, and I've always been passionate about connecting people and ideas. You can learn more about how I think, and what I value, on my blog.
