We are selective about our projects and only work with a few clients at a time. This approach allows us to build genuine partnerships and think deeply about your problems while caring for our creativity and mental health.

We are available for keynotes, workshops, and coaching, but our next consulting availability will be in June 2023.

Keynotes and workshops

Pricing for keynotes and workshops varies depending on the content, length of the talk, and a few other factors

Keynotes are normally 90 minutes long, made up a 45 to 60-minute talk, followed by an interactive 30 to 45-minute Q&A session.

Workshops can range from 3 hours to multiple days depending on the topic and how deep we want to go on the topic.

Voted by 10,000+ attendees as the only 4-time Adobe MAX Master as one of the 20 best speakers at the event.

Career and Leadership Coaching


Career coaching sessions are $500 USD per session for one session or $350 USD per session if you get a block of five sessions.

In career coaching, we will work together through individual or a series of sessions to help you progress in your career. Individual sessions help you work through a current problem giving you insights and actionable takeaways. We can also book blocks of multiple coaching sessions where we will work together to create a coaching plan that will focus on specific areas of your career you want to improve.

You can pay them personally through various online payment services before each session, or I can work with your employer to become a vendor and invoice the coaching back to the company.


Leadership coaching sessions are $1000 USD per session.

In leadership coaching, we will work together to create a coaching plan that focuses on areas like helping to improve your leadership skills, organizational strategy, team development, process refinements, design methodologies, and other challenges that come with being a design leader. To help you and your team make the fastest progress and get the most value, we will share the artifacts, processes, playbooks, and best practices I have developed throughout my career and learned working alongside some of the world's best teams.

We commonly work with your employer to become a vendor and invoice the coaching to the company as we will work on specific leadership or team deliverables that will benefit the business and team.

The most important thing in all of our coaching sessions, whether is a single meeting or an ongoing series, is that we establish clear goals, we work together to help you meet those goals, and make sure you walk away from every session to new insights, perspectives, and actionable next steps.

After each session, we will send you a recording of the session, written notes on what was discussed, any artifacts that were shared in the session, and a recap of the next steps we agreed on.

All coaching sessions are 60 minutes long and can be scheduled on a recurring weekly, monthly or quarterly basis, or when you need them through a Calendly link.

Not sure if you want to make this commitment right away? We also offer free mentoring through ADP List so you can see the impact for yourself.

If you aren't sure if you want to make that type of commitment right away then I also make 3 thirty minute free mentoring sessions available every Friday through The Amazing Design People List. These sessions often book up very quickly but new session become available every Monday.
