I help organizations optimize their employee experience to drive business objectives.
I am a culture expert for rapid-growth teams.
My mission is to unleash Organizational Soul for the upliftment of the planet— 1 Integrated Leader at a time.
How do I do this?
On a personal level, I give myself, and everyone around me permission to Glow In The Dark. And I build tools to help you do that for your team.
In my youth, I burned my candles at all ends. Kind of a “wax menorah” approach to life. Who knew that was so crazy-unsustainable?!?
This put me on a 12 year path toward what I call Full-Life Integration™.
These days I burn a single candle every morning — representing my integration as a yogi, a dad, and Personal Transformation Catalyst.
Pared down. Sharp Eyed. Awake. My work is to help leaders design, and live their fully integrated life… which positively impacts the culture of their family, organizations, or business.
To help spare people from my own dicey travels, I designed and released a Full-Life Integration “owner’s manual” called The Framework Manifesto. It includes a short workbook that accelerates the integration process. It’s free. Check it out here.
I launched a mindfulness & meditation program called THE PAUSE for my last company Centro, a rapid-growth digital media firm headquartered in Chicago with 34 offices across North America.
During my time there, Centro won many awards for our company culture, all while growing from 44, to over 700 employees.
- #1 Best Place to Work in Chicago by Crains Business, four consecutive years (2011 – 2014).
- #1 Best Place to Work in advertising & marketing (2015) – Fortune Magazine
- #1 Best Place to Work – Advertising Age (AdAge.com)
I’ve recently been asked to do a flurry of interviews on the topic of Full-Life Integration™.
Here are a few of my favorite conversations:
- Business Insider – Interview alongside Centro’s Founder & Chief.
- The Jess Lively Show podcast
- The One You Feed podcast
- Interviewing my friend and mentor Jonathan Fields on Good Life Project – TV
“Through the nurturing of our seemingly disparate talents and skills, we’re able to experience Full-Life Integration… When, (much like the 80s cartoon Voltron), the whole of us beats alien ass on a whole other level. –The Framework Manifesto
Thank you kindly for stopping by. My sincere hope is that you found something to help you along your path.

My 5 Non-Negotiables
Presence is mandatory for fulfillment.
If our work doesn’t resonate deep in The Feels, we’re not there yet.
We create experiences that crackle and sparkle
with life. Our work must radiate passion.
Our family is our core motivator,
so your family expands when we work together.
We pursue trust, and deep-belly laughs.
Designing our client experiences is our highest expression,
and we serve them up like searing, finger-tapping guitar solos.
We’re going to have fun, but we gotta go deep.
We work harder on ourselves than we allow anyone, or anything to work on us.
