Expert Bio

I'm a Coach and Consultant with over 20 years of experience helping people grow & thrive in today’s complex landscape of overlapping career, partnership, and parenting challenges. I believe that you can achieve more. More authenticity. More alignment. More empowerment. More expansion. More YOU. That you can shine brighter and show up more fully. That you can make a few small but strategic shifts to start building a life that integrates your values, your purpose, and your passion more coherently. That you can move away from patterns of anxiety and avoidance and lean more fully into authenticity and alignment. And most importantly, that you can start doing so TODAY. I hold multiple credentials in Coaching and Leadership Development, but most importantly have years of real world experience as an Entrepreneur, Leadership Trainer, Relationship Coach, and parent and partner too. I've written a book, Welcome To Fatherhood: The Modern Man's Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Fatherhood, and am also the founder and co-host of Baby Talk w/ Katie & David, a podcast dedicated to supporting the pregnancy to early parenthood journey for both mothers and fathers alike. I currently live in Northern Virginia with my wife, Jennifer, 2 young children, Justin & Dottie, and our Chocolate Lab, Johnny Biscuits.

About my sessions:

  • Designed to support busy professionals who want to take more ownership and action to improve their lives and relationships.

  • A great fit for those struggling with the competing challenges of career, relationship, and/or parenting demands.

  • Best for those who are ready to take action but don't quite know what the best next step may be.

  • 30-min sessions are better for simpler or single issue challenges, longer sessions are better for more complex scenarios.

  • Strictly confidential, judgment-free, and oriented to you achieving success on your terms.
