Why I Became The Contribution Coach

I’m 70 years old – with 6 children and 7 grandchildren. I spent most of my life as a mathematician, computer system designer, developer, manager and business owner.

One of the nice things about being 70 is that I’ve been able to do a lot in my life. And all of the various experiences I’ve had feed directly into my coaching practice.

  • I’ve lead seminars and other programs, both privately and for Landmark Education.
  • I’ve been a teacher at
    • NYU Graduate Business School,
    • Columbia Graduate Business School
    • SUNY
    • Arthur D. Kill Prison (yes, prison)
  • I started an alternative school
  • I owned and managed a natural food store
  • And I’ve been an Options Trader
  • I’ve been broke
  • I am wealthy
  • I’ve been coaching since 1979, professionally since 1999, and have trained and mentored other coaches

I’ve successfully coached Fortune 500 Executives, teen-agers, parents, women executives, single parents, people getting divorced, people getting married, people looking to get married, people forming business partnerships, people dissolving business partnerships. I’ve designed and led teleclasses on different kinds of coaching – I love doing that.

I am passionately committed to positive change in the world. For the last 25 years I’ve been an activist in ending the causes and persistence of hunger in the world (very much including the United States.) At the same time, I’m committed to supporting any efforts you make that are consistent with my purpose. I am part of several organizations that share my commitments– Events to Empower Humanity, The Hunger Project, Curbing Hunger, The Global Abundance Alliance and The Pachamama Alliance, to name a few.

My mission is: To Inspire and empower all of us to live fulfilled lives in harmony with the Earth.
