I help students, professionals, and organizations reinvent themselves and their organizations. I try my best to learn more than I teach, share more than I receive, and listen more than I speak. In addition to traveling across the country (and, occasionally around the world) to help individuals and organizations raise their profiles, I coach 7th grade basketball, play guitar, and am a fairly active triathlete (completed the 2015 Ironman in Mont-Tremblant, Québec and the 2013 Ironman in Lake Placid, NY). I am the author of Reinventing Professional Services: Building Your Business in the Digital Marketplace (Wiley, 2011 - also available in Japanese) and The Opportunity Maker: Strategies for Inspiring Your Legal Career Through Creative Networking and Business Development (West Academic Press, 2nd Edition, 2016), for which I had the privilege of interviewing some of the most fascinating experts across the globe. I am also a legal industry analyst and ghostwriter for a number of companies preparing industry research reports, white papers, articles, case studies, and client profiles. The ABA Journal named my blog,, to it Blawg100 list of the legal industry's most influential blogs.
