West Point

The Monastery in Colorado

Following graduation from West Point and military service, I spent several years as a Trappist monk practicing meditation under Christian and Buddhist teachers.

After several years in the monastery, I worked in Japan as a consultant and started two companies. I later returned to the US, received a master’s degree from Boston College and pursued doctoral studies at Harvard.

Following grad school, I spent over 25 years as an executive in several US and International tech companies.

I started MonkCoach to help professionals live holistic lives while creating profitable value-centered enterprises.

Focus Areas

Mindfulness & Meditation

Meditation was once confined to monasteries

Meditation is now a part of the business world

So many thoughts, so many identities.

Seeing yourself and the world as it simply is, opens the door to creative relationships.
