“The cave you fear to enter holds
the treasure you seek.” 

I’d love to have a real conversation
about fear and transformation.

Let’s talk.

Because who we are is how we lead.

I’m a Creative Executive Coach & Strategic Advisor who is passionate about collaborating with fiercely courageous and creative leaders to achieve social impact in their organizations and the world

My study of fear began at a young age, as a painfully shy Asian American immigrant kid afraid to speak during class or in meetings. Over the course of 33 years, I’ve developed an acute understanding of fear — how it can hold us back but also how it can propel us into the most powerful essence of who we are. 

We can’t lead without knowing our fears. When we know how to hold fear, it becomes an immense source of power.

For me, it’s been a practice of persistent courage and liberation. It’s what inspired me to come out as queer at 27. It’s what inspired me to trade a well-paid job for a vision of collaborating with creative leaders to fight for humanity. It’s what inspired me to build equal and authentic connections with people whether it’s in the boardroom or on the beach. It’s what inspired me to be vulnerable and share my story with thousands of strangers across the world.

It’s a practice that I’m keen to share with 
leaders who are ready to work with fear.
