I work with successful, creative people who want to enhance the quality of their life and work.

People who want:

  • less stress and more happiness
  • a life that’s creatively fulfilling and calls forward their unique gifts and talents
  • the serenity that comes with genuine self-confidence
  • greater clarity about the choices available and how to make them
  • more peace with their family and co-workers
  • to experience all aspects of life while feeling centered and calm
  • more courage in the face of not knowing “how it’s going to turn out”


From a talk, Fearless Filmmaking, presented to the San Diego Filmmakers.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You’re successful, but something is missing.
  • You’ve lost the passion you once had for your work. You’re “phoning it in.”
  • The people working for you are unhappy, disinterested, and unsupportive.
  • It’s time for a change. Or things are changing. And the future looks bleak.
  • You keep asking, What’s my purpose in this life? 
  • You’re doing things that create chaos and hurt the people you love – including yourself. It’s time to do something different.
  • Since the break up, you’re pessimistic about ever falling in love or feeling intimacy again.

These are challenging. I know, I’ve been there.

What I learned was:

  • Creating a fulfilling life is an “inside job.” Empowerment begins with the courage to examine my thoughts, beliefs, and feelings.
  • All  people, circumstances, and events in my life are a mirror image of how I am treating myself.
  • There are tools available to end suffering and get you moving forward again – one step at a time (the good news: one of the tools is having fun).
  • The support of an experienced mentor, coach or therapist is essential in turning immovable challenge into meaningful change.
  • The most effective form of leadership, at home or in your profession, is to walk your talk. In other words:  Be what you want those around you to be.
  • Every “crisis,” every “mistake” is a learning opportunity. When we let go of negative self judgments, take action, and apply the wisdom we’ve gained – really good stuff happens.

“In 1992, I was hired to be the camera operator on movie that would change my life, and would forever shift how I looked at the unique, collaborative, creation process we call filmmaking…
