I am a lifelong surfer. I’ve always been itchy for adventure and exploration. This mindset drives my approach to helping clients and developing our company.

In 2006, I Ieft Big Four consulting and set out to co-found a company aimed at delivering great results for organizations around the globe. As a master facilitator, certified executive coach, strategic partner, and organization leader I’m grateful that I’ve been able to do that.

I’ve worked with some of the world’s top teams and organizations over the years. My primary focus these days is helping the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and its global partners with issues of global health, climate, and gender.

At theDifference I’m surrounded by agile designers who create amazing solutions to the world’s greatest challenges and, 15 years in, it feels like we’re just getting started.
