His work extends into the corporate sector as well, where he uses singing to empower authenticity, empathy, and stage-presence, which enable leaders to source and deliver their vision in deeply compelling ways.
His clients also include the global leadership team at the Center for Creative Leadership and NASA, and senior VPs at Sprint and Siemen’s, and more than a dozen other Fortune 500 companies.
