Hi, I'm Andrea.

You can call me Andi.

Over the last two decades I've had a pretty winding career path: testing video games, overseeing the digital side of Free Speech TV, teaching business English in Japan, and building product at multiple tech start-ups with two exits and one currently at unicorn status. Since 2021 I've been an executive coach working with convivial leaders and teams committed to building a better world.

I work one-on-one with clients, coach executive teams, run group coaching programs, and design leadership development curriculum for organizations.

I write a monthly newsletter called the becoming about leadership, change, and being human, as well as Words Make Worlds — a bi-weekly newsletter dedicated to the art, science, and craft of the Coaching Leadership Style. I also run Leader as Coach, a six week cohort-based course for executives that want to 10x their leadership practice.

Outside of coaching I am a fully certified Realization Process teacher, an avid backcountry camper, and a budding martial artist.

Qualifications & Training

As a coach I am committed to my own self-inquiry and personal development, as well as deepening the skills and knowledge needed to serve clients. Current focus: spending 2023 exploring the Cape Cod model of Gestalt and continuing my study and practice of the Realization Process with Roma Hammel.
