I've Been Showing Up My Entire Life

I left home at 16 to finish school in Bogota, Colombia and didn’t speak Spanish when I landed. I dug in, clarified my reason for being there, realigned my goals with my behavior, and within three months, I was a fluent Spanish speaker. Clarify. Realign. Act. Bogota set the stage for my life.

Although my professional career started as an enlisted man on submarines, where I ended was nowhere near the beginning. A Cryptologic Warfare Officer embedded within the National Security Agency (NSA), I transitioned into the officer ranks, secured dual-master degrees, and received many awards. My 22-year career was a continual drumbeat of clarifying, realigning, and acting around what I wanted for my life and how I wanted to define individual and team achievement.

My desire to coach sits in a deep curiosity about how I can affect actionable change with others. Yes, I have experienced tremendous success, but more importantly, I have learned to listen actively. One of my most significant abilities is to listen to what a person is not saying and reflect back observations so they feel a sense of curiosity and consider a change.

I understand the doubt of committing to work with someone when you’ve repeatedly achieved success throughout your life. Throughout 90% of my lifetime, I have either been able to think through, push through, or work through any challenge. That last 10%, however, has often felt more complicated than the entire 90% combined. It’s always been a coach who has dislodged me from my plight. I have been clarifying, realigning, and showing up my entire life.

That’s me. What about you?
