CREATING SEPARATION IS A MINDSET

Leveraging Experience to
Fuel Growth.

I’ve spent the last 15+ years finding ways to leverage my ability to perform at the highest level as an NFL player to transition into various roles within entrepreneurship, sports management, and venture capital.
This blend of experience across highly competitive, performance driven  industries has enabled me to connect the synergies of leadership and success on the playing field with the fundamental business skills. Leveraging this interdisciplinary experience has helped me develop a unique growth mindset that helps growth-minded individuals and organizations looking to unlock their untapped potential and create separation.
