I generally block off my Thursday afternoons to be helpful
Glad you found your way to me. Bios are confusing to write, but I like bullet points and lists, so here are some of those.
I enjoy nerding out on:
The psychology of motivation and change
Neuroscience and eastern practices (meditation, yoga, etc)
Storytelling through data
My work is to serve others. I do that through a mix of:
Growth strategy consulting for founders of mission-driven companies
1:1 coaching for high-achievers seeking meaning and balance
Writing and other creative pursuits
Typical resume stuff:
Stanford Graduate School of Business MBA
Previously at Bain & Company, sweetgreen & Warby Parker

Drawing, by which I really mean doodling
Mindfulness, quiet time in nature
