Hi, I’m Adam.

I’m a writer, executive coach, and former technology executive based in the foothills of Colorado.

Through my writing and coaching I teach others the art and science of creating our best selves. My expertise is ultimately in helping you thrive across multiple facets of your life, including your habits, mindset, and career.

My writing has been featured on Men’s Journal,, The Huffington Post, Men’s Fitness, Lifehack, and Entrepreneur On Fire to name a few.

Prior to building my writing + coaching business, I spent 13 years as a technology sales leader, studied leadership at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, and was the founder and CEO of Bodeefit, a fitness community and technology company with over 500,000 users worldwide.
