“Before working with Chris, I had immense stress about feeling like my offer was simply not good enough. It was so unconventional. Chris lead me through this chaos and into order very compassionately, and derived a strategic work plan that was suited to me in the most effective and satisfying way.”

“Chris helped set me straight when I felt my career path was starting to drift. He helped me realize how my past body of work could not only move me forward in one direction, it could help me branch out into other disciplines and mediums . I was stuck in my own head, and Chris helped me get back on track.”

MY STORY

I had a thriving artistic career for over a decade, and then suddenly I didn't

Now I share what 8 months at an Ivy League business school and 7 years as a creative director and marketing strategist taught me about why creative careers fail, and what you can do about it.

My evidence-based approach to business and career development gives creative people the real-world skills, knowledge and support they need to identify opportunities, overcome obstacles, and build more sustainable careers in today's changing global economy.
