I am not only a champion myself, but I have been training others to find their own Inner Champions for over four decades. As an 8th Degree Black Belt/Master Instructor and former national Taekwondo champion, I rank in the top 1% of all martial artists in the world. As a keynote speaker, life-leadership coach and author, my passion is sharing my unique brand of Black Belt Leadership so others may discover the most empowered version of themselves – leading to clarity of purpose, increased confidence and the courage to take inspired action to make their dreams come true.


Through my "7 Qualities of Black Belt Leadership" I use martial arts as a metaphor to I inspire organizations, leaders and their teams through my various "Mind of a Champion" programs which include:


1) Keynote Speaking

2) Board Breaking Experience Workshops

3) Communications and Team Building Seminars and

4) Executive Leadership Coaching


I earned a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from Northwestern University (where I also was a 4-year letterman in football) and a Masters in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica. In addition to being an entreprenuer for the past 24 years, I am also a former sales executive with the Procter & Gamble Distributing Company. My experience in athletics, entrepreneurship and the corporate world gives me unique perspective on vision creation, strategic planning, communication and leadership within teams. I am also the author of my book, "Black Belt Leadership: 7 Keys to Creating a Life of Purpose by Discovering Your Inner Champion".


Through my work, leaders and their teams learn to profoundly impact their lives and organizations by maximizing the power that lives within them to create the breakthrough results that come from accessing their own Inner Champions.
