Personal

I'm 56.
I've been incredibly fortunate.

When I was eight my parents moved us to Teller, Alaska on the Bering Straits.

On a clear day you can turn west and look into tomorrow.
(thanks to the International Date Line)

I grew up in an Inupiat Eskimo village of 200.
Friends taught me lessons for which I'm profoundly grateful.

Sam Ailak, an elder, shared his time when I was 14.
The longer I live, the wiser he becomes.

Growing up in a place where continents and worlds touch gave me a love
for in-between space.
("Zwischenraum" the Germans call it)

I went to college and then grad school at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government;
eventually I finished school and began management consulting.

Then I discovered coaching.
It's allowed me to connect the wisdom of all my worlds.

That's my history in brief.
Here are my favorites so far in life:
