About Brad

Unfolding Coach

I have been an entrepreneur since I was fifteen when, together with my best friend, we started a lawn business before we could even drive. I have been a leader, entrepreneur, consultant, mentor, and coach in a wide variety of business settings. My passion is to create, build, and grow companies from the ground up which has brought me experience in construction, the service industry, inspecting, photography, marketing, restaurants, real estate, investing, athletics, and education. As a fellow entrepreneur I can relate to the struggles and isolation that can come from being a small business owner.

I have a passion for learning and continuing to grow which has led me to become a Certified Integral Coach. I am driven to help develop other entrepreneurs succeed in their positions and share the wealth of understanding that I have.

As part of my coach training I practiced Aikido. I bring practical experiences from Aikido to many of my coaching engagements. These can involve concepts around communicating and not causing harm to others. “The art of peace begins with you.” Morihei Ueshiba – Found of Aikido

I have a degree in Kinesiology, the study of movement, from the University of Texas. I have been involved in team sports every year since I was 5 years old. This desire for movement and understanding the human body is a key element that I bring to business.

My style is a reflection of who I am. I am patient, positive, non-judgmental, a great listener and strong yet kind. I am passionate about entrepreneurs and what I can bring to your business and personal life. Book a conversation with me to learn more and for us to get to know each other.


How do you put a value on being your best self? It’s priceless, right? Although we so often neglect this key element to happiness. I met Brad at a time where I was about to turn 40, in transition mode, unhappy and struggling to find the path that felt right. Even from our initial meeting I felt comfortable connecting with Brad. He’s so easy to have a conversation with, and through the months long process helped gently guide me to a place where I could find answers within myself. He has specific strategies that allowed me to reflect and work through somewhat complex issues. His positivity is infectious and his passion for coaching undeniable. I highly recommend Brad if you‘re ready to take the next steps and unlock your true potential.”

“I came away from coaching with a much deeper connection between my home self, work self, and inner self. Our work focused on blending these facets of my life, so I can show up in all things knowing I have brought my best. Brad was a steady and supportive coach. He both equipped me with new perspective and tools, and challenged me regularly to push myself toward realizing my goals.”
Elisa L.

“After my coaching experience with Brad, I can confidently say he is a trusted advisor of mine now. His ability to quickly grasp issues, both personal and professional, and provide tools to help direct energy and focus have been invaluable over the last year. For my first experience working with a coach outside of athletics, Brad approached our time together with empathy and an open mind. Our work together is paying off daily in my personal and professional life.”
