Brandon has nearly 20 years of professional experience with coaching clients, yield-cos, developers, investors, and laboratories.  As an executive coach and consultant, he supports the acceleration of growth and is passionate about coaching because of the opportunity to help others by unlocking self-awareness, achieving clarity, confidence, and taking action

Clients describe Brandon as insightful, warm-hearted, and inquisitive.  Brandon is inspired by the dreams and goals of his clients and their courage to overcome challenges.  His approach is inquisitive.  He does not pretend to have all of the answers.  Rather, he asks thoughtful questions with the knowledge that clients will arrive at the right answers. 

Living for a few months at a time in Chile, Argentina, and China taught him a lot about himself, other cultures, and our own culture in contrast.  But parenting his two young children is easily his most amazing learning experience.
