Understanding human nature and working
with leaders are my two passions.



I’m an executive coach, leadership development consultant, and Enneagram teacher who lives outside of Philadelphia with my wife and four sons.

For the past 25 years, I’ve had the good fortune to be able to combine these passions and work with high performers across the globe and work with them as they achieved greater levels of personal and professional success.

My secret weapon is the Enneagram,

the single most powerful tool for understanding human nature.

When I first encountered the Enneagram in 1994 it was life changing—it was a model that described me and the people around me to a depth I had never experienced.

When I started work as an executive coach and consultant a few years later,

it was a no-brainer that the Enneagram would be my primary tool for helping clients establish a foundation of self-awareness that could be used to help them see how they were stuck, what they needed to change, and how they could do it.

And, not surprisingly, my clients loved it.

Like me, they immediately saw not only themselves, but the people they knew, worked with and lived with. They couldn’t wait to learn more.

At the time, however, the Enneagram literature was not really suited for the business world.

I needed a resource for my clients so they could benefit from the Enneagram without being bogged down or even misled by the inaccuracies, over-simplifications, or esoteric rabbit-holes found in the Enneagram literature.

I realized I would have to provide that resource… because it didn’t yet exist.

I made it my life’s work to develop an approach to the Enneagram that is clear, precise, and simple while maintaining the depth of the system. An innovative approach that is grounded in practicality and real-world experience working with some of the brightest and business-savvy people in the world.

The result is “the Awareness to Action Enneagram,” a system that my partners and I have used to help business leaders create breakthrough results on five continents.

Seeing the transformation of my clients for decades, I couldn’t keep my consulting model to just the business world and have now partnered with talented people to start applying the insights of the Awareness to Action Enneagram to the arenas of sports and entertainment.
