For more than a decade I have trained and coached hundreds of airline pilots, executives, and entrepreneurs to successful outcomes, and led multiple startups in the entertainment, aviation, and human development industries. From this unique perspective I can empathize with corporate executives as well as small-business owners.

I founded Creating Lift to help business leaders gain critical insights and take action to achieve their own unique vision of success. We are a consortium of business coaches, educators, and researchers who believe that leadership development pays lifelong dividends for individuals, their organizations, and our communities. 

The name Creating Lift comes from the feelings of exhilaration and wonder that converge at the precise moment of takeoff, when an aircraft transforms from an unruly high speed tricycle to a graceful flying machine.  

I want to help people experience that feeling, wherever their passion lies.
