Building on extensive research, and my own experience with transition, I have developed a four-stage program to help others launch meaningful and fulfilling careers. I use the listening skills I developed as an improviser and the creative problem-solving techniques I learned as a producer to work with a wide-range of individuals—surgeons, television executives, real estate brokers, entrepreneurs—who are looking for new opportunities. I partner with them to clarify their current career issues, identify their challenges and help them discover creative possibilities for the next chapter of their lives. I’ve integrated my experiences as an actor, writer, improviser, and communicator to establish a career as a certified professional coach.
For 25 years, I have been the voice you hear on many national radio and TV commercials (among them, Dunkin’ Donuts and DirecTV), numerous documentaries, and for 10 years was the voice of The History Channel.
I’ve written and performed comedy for NPR’s “All Things Considered” and co-authored the New York Times bestselling humor books, Bad Cat, Bad Dog and Bad President.
I was a member of the main-stage and touring companies of Chicago City Limits, one of NY’s premier comedy-improv groups, and have taught improvisation to both children and adults.
In the corporate world I have written, produced, directed, and appeared in industrial videos and live presentations for companies such as IBM, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, and Coldwell Banker.
