“Succeeding in business and in life is all about empowering people and setting them up for success.”

I have been programming since I was 12 years old. It's such a dynamic area of the tech world that has changed the way I think. Professionally, I started out in programming and then moved into DevOps.  

What excites me most about agile and DevOps is how they tap into the powers of teamwork and automation to speed up software releases without compromising the quality or reliability of the code. 

What I realised was missing, though, was the cultural shift needed to support close communication and collaboration. So, I naturally gravitated toward coaching and leadership roles. I love empowering people to work better and realise their potential. And that's how I ended up in training and consulting. 

I've been a coach, trainer, mentor, and consultant for over 20 years. I've worked with Fortune 100 companies, entrepreneur-led businesses, government departments, and blue-chip organisations to help grow their business and their people.

My passion for transformational leadership is what led me to develop a system to help others become intuitive leaders called Transforming Your Ideas Into Reality (TYIIR). I wrote this book as a guide for anyone wanting to evolve their leadership skills.

When I'm not at work, I enjoy martial arts. I also like fishing and spending time with my family in North Carolina, where I live.
