First and foremost, I am a husband, father, and son. My family is everything to me. In fact, a significant driver for me to leave my stable, well-paying career in the commercial theatre was to show my daughters what chasing a dream looks like.
Service and contribution are two values that are woven into the fabric that is ME. I feel most alive when I know I'm making a difference in the lives of those around me. It's probably why I do what I do.
The first line in my personal manifesto is "Lead With Love." My daily intention is to love whatever or whomever is in front of me. Love is all there is.
My teenage daughters call me "a child!" I have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy and love to have fun. To live a full life belly laughs are required.
Since the age of 23, I've been all-in on personal and professional growth. I will always be a work in progress, and I love that. I love growing and helping my clients see the possibilities for themselves.
Despite having a loving family and privileged childhood, I felt like a “shitty kid!"
I struggled with ADHD (undiagnosed) and my parents didn’t know what to do with me. I thought I was broken.
I was bullied a lot for how I looked. What I internalized from those experiences was “you’re a piece of shit. You don’t belong."
And I believed it, for years.
I tried therapy. But I realized that therapy's main job was heal past wounds and trauma. And I was seeking change, progress, a new perspective on life.
Then I found coaching. It was forward looking, progress-focused, and action-oriented. It asked questions like:
What can we do to get over the hump? What can we do to practice courage to build confidence? How do we understand how we think? How we interpret the world? How can we tangibly track and see change over time?
I hired a coach I couldn't afford, and I started doing my own work. Then I learned the truth of it all:
To see any progress, I had to first embrace my own personal worth. I began to understand that no matter what, I am perfect.
And from love, I could create so much more for myself.
I built a business I love, a family I love, and a life that I love. If you asked me today, I would tell you that I'm truly livin' the dream.
Coaching got me there, and it has helped so many of my clients transform as well.
Now, I want to help you reach the same levels.
To say that Andy is an angel in disguise is an understatement. My life and business had all of a sudden taken a major turn and I felt like there was no way out. He helped me rediscover the woman that I had lost somewhere along the way. With his support I was able to regain my self-esteem, confidence, and self-reliance, as well as reach the goals I had set for myself. Andy has an inspiring way about him that encourages you while you navigate through some of your toughest personal and professional challenges.
I have read many self improvement books and gone to therapy for years, which, of course, helped. However, hiring Andy as my coach accelerated my growth and helped me become even more capable, confident and in control of my own future.
When I began my work with Andy I was overwhelmed by the many forces in my business and life. I felt as if I was being pulled in every direction and getting nowhere. In a very short time, Andy was able to help me see how I was living out of balance with my core values, which was causing a lot of dissonance within me. Once I was able to see my world through this new lens, my path forward became crystal clear.
Andy is kind-hearted, up-beat and full of empathy. He immediately puts you at ease and offers the ideal mixture of compassion and accountability. My work with Andy was amazing and I never imagined I could feel as free and “open” as I do today.
Andy’s ability to truly see me was what I needed. He believed in me even when I didn’t. Working with Andy will transform your life. He really helped me dive deep and get to what is really getting in my way of creating a thriving business that I want.
Thanks to his guidance and support, I have transformed in ways I only used to dream of. Before I met Andy, I lacked confidence, and I truly felt lost in my life. But after working with him, I feel that I have realized my purpose and have gained complete faith and confidence in myself. Andy’s coaching has helped me realize how important it is to love myself and embrace my imperfections. His coaching has also enhanced my productivity, by improving my planning and goal-setting discipline. While these lessons may come easy for some, it used to be difficult for me to realize and implement. But with Andy’s support and empathetic coaching, I am now able to apply these lessons with ease and finally grab my life by the horns. Here’s why I decided to sign up for Andy’s coaching: I decided that I needed a kick in the butt to get where I wanted to be in my life and I needed the right person to do so. I needed a professional who would listen and was empathetic. I needed someone who would push me when I needed to be challenged and was understanding when I failed. I needed someone who would ask me the hard hitting questions that I would be afraid of answering, but with the intention of understanding me and helping me find solutions to the problems those questions helped reveal. And fortunately for me, Andy had met all that criteria.
Andy is an extremely kind and compassionate person. The insights I’ve gained from his coaching have helped me navigate some financial hurdles as well as improve my career / life balance. I’m grateful for Andy and I recommend him highly to anyone looking to take their life and work to the next level!
Working with Andy has been a game-changer. I was always curious about whether or not coaching was something I could benefit from. I decided to take the leap with Andy. He has the ability to bring things to the surface that I needed to see (and may have been avoiding searching for) then coach and hold me accountable on how to grow as a leader, husband, father, friend etc. If you’re wondering if this coaching thing can work…I’d highly recommend a conversation with Andy.
Working with Andy was the most holistic approach to leadership coaching I’ve ever experienced.
While the takeaways from my time working with Andy were certainly tangible in business metrics such as goal setting, forecasting, revenue growth, and profitability, honestly, that isn’t even half of what I got out of this experience. The bigger opportunity and one many leaders struggle with, was receiving unwavering support to face fears of doing something differently than you’ve done it before and giving yourself the space to get out of your own way. That’s right. YOU are the problem, and Andy is the brilliant guru that knows how to identify the self-imposed barriers you placed to help you see them, disassemble them, and build new roads to places you’ve never been with tools you’ve never used or didn’t know you had.
If this sounds different than the work you’ve done in the past, you’re right. I cannot emphasize enough the overall growth, value, and transformation I felt from our time working together and now as I implement my findings and learnings into future growth. Thank you, always, Andy. I’m forever grateful for this experience and will be reaching out again as I climb the next summit.
Starting a brand new business can be scary and intimidating. Before deciding to work with Andy, I literally had NO money coming in, and I was very skeptical of the time commitment required. I signed on anyway. Great news! I NOW HAVE A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS! And, I have gained so much confidence in myself. So Much Confidence! What else can I say? I can’t think of anything I’d change! Our work together was terrific, and I’m very grateful for all of the insights, for believing in me, and for my newfound belief that “yes, I can!”! I highly recommend working with Andy!
I have done a fair amount of therapy over the years, which was beneficial, but I did not get anywhere near the results as I have in my work with Andy. Andy puts you at ease with his confidence and humor, and through his sincere kindness he creates a safe place for a lot of introspection and vulnerability. Through his coaching I was able to more clearly define my life values and goals, measure my progress, and see incredible, tangible results. He has a lot of helpful resources and brainstorming activities which will help YOU lead the session in the direction you want it to go in order to get the results you’re hoping for.
I highly recommend his services to anyone who is motivated to improve their life, and to find more richness in the day-to-day.
One of the best decisions I made was getting past my fear of being coached and allowing Andy to support me. From day one, he was very transparent that it would be work, and I had to be willing to be honest, trust the process, and invest fully. He challenged me to be my authentic self before we even started, and by doing so, allowed Andy to do what he does best-coach me to a level that I didn’t even know existed. I would recommend Andy to anyone!! Thank you, Andy!!
