A mid-life career change improved every aspect of my life. Through working with a coach I discovered my passion to help others and found that I, too, was built to be a coach.  

I originally studied psychology at UCSD, convinced I was destined for academics. But after graduation, feeling lost, I fell into a career in telecommunications. After 20+ years I was working as an engineer and it had nothing to do with who I was.

My transformation began in 2013 when my wife’s work took us to Santiago, Chile. The assumption was that I would return to telecom after a sabbatical, but this soon felt inconceivable.  Everything clarified when I contracted a coach. The process had an immediate, powerful effect on me. Within the first sessions I realized that coaching itself was my ideal career; that doing something so in line with who I was would bring me a true sense of purpose and fulfillment. 

We now live in Mexico City and I have since become a CPC through iPEC and an ACC through the ICF. I've never been happier. It’s now my job to continue my own personal transformation in order to better serve my clients in theirs.
