A Little About Me

I spent the better part of my corporate career at a fortune 500 Bio-tech company (Genentech) in various leadership roles ranging from Sales & Marketing to Leadership Development.  I frequently spoke and facilitated sessions with hundreds in attendance.

Since founding my consulting company, Braintrust, I have spoken to audiences of all sizes on the topics of Leadership, Communication, Story Based Selling and becoming a Story Based Organization.  I primarily focus on how companies and individuals can leverage the power of the latest neuroscience to more effectively communicate with the “buying brain.”

I now dedicate my time to writing, training, consulting, and speaking. In terms of my platform:

  • I have trained multiple fortune 500 companies on Neuroselling – Story Based Selling and Story Based Coaching.
  • I have been an Executive Coach to Senior Executives of fortune 500 companies.
  • I have consulted on strategy, sales & marketing and leadership for companies ranging from ten to ten thousand employees.

I have written the book, Story Based Selling and currently working on the finishing touches on my newest book, “How Great Communicators Connect.”

I am happily married to my wife of seventeen years, Hazel. We have three amazing children, Gracie, Drew and Priya. We live outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing the guitar and golf.
