What people are saying

        Andi does such an amazing job at slowing you down and reframing the way you approach problems in a positive, conscious way. The course materials are invaluable, and the experiential learning was the best out of any course or leadership education I've been through and I have already started implementing the learnings.
Kara Kelly

Kara Kelly

VP of User Experience
        This thoughtful, well-designed course fills a critical gap in existing Leadership training. The agenda has a great flow, with dedicated time for active participation and practice of the frameworks introduced – both as a full cohort and in breakout groups. And the Leader’s Little Book of Coaching is a valuable companion for ongoing support.

        I really enjoyed the course and I would definitely recommend it to anyone that want to become a better leader, coach, manager and combine those 3 things more effectively. Even if some of the lessons happened after a long day at work, I always finished the videocall feeling renewed, energised, ready to try new things with my team the next day.

        If you've ever wondered whether there's a more thoughtful and nurturing way to lead, the answer is yes. I truly loved this course. Andi has a way of slowing you down, observing and noticing to build your EQ to the next level and then ground you in a leadership practice that's build on a coaching approach to allow you and your team to succeed.

        Andrea's thoughtful approach, calm presence and immense knowledge on coaching and leadership really make for such a valuable, insightful experience. The things you learn about “leader as coach” are immediately applicable while likeminded souls in similar fields make for interesting cohorts to learn with. 10 out of 10 recommend!

Executive Coach, MBA, PCC

Over the last two decades I've had a pretty winding career path: testing video games, overseeing the digital side of Free Speech TV, teaching business English in Japan, and leading product at multiple tech start-ups with two exits and one currently at unicorn status.


These days I am an International Coaching Federation (ICF) credentialed PCC Executive Coach working at the intersection of leadership, business, psychology, and design. I partner with leaders to build effective organizations, high-performing teams, and lasting change. I work one-on-one with clients, coach executive teams, run group coaching programs, and design leadership development curriculum for organizations.


I hold an MBA from the Weatherhead School of Management where I studied Appreciative Inquiry, Intentional Change Theory, and Organizational Behavior with folks like Richard Boyatzis, Melvin Smith, and David Cooperrider. I completed my undergraduate work at Oberlin College where I designed my own major, Technocultural Studies.


I began my coach training at New Ventures West where I learned the methodologies of integral coaching for individuals and teams. Since then I've trained at The Strozzi Institute in the art of somatic coaching and leadership, with the Aletheia School of integral unfoldment, and with the Gestalt International Study Center.


I am also a certified meditation and embodiment teacher in the lineage of The Realization Process.


Outside of coaching I am a dedicated meditatoravid backcountry camper, and budding martial artist.
