Aaron

I am a facilitator and coach on a lifelong journey of development to become a modern-day Uruwashii, historically, the warrior poets of feudal Japan. Extreme as this sounds, I strive only to live my life humbly through the hard work of both mind and body. I feel that all people have the potential for greatness; they just need to be guided towards a higher level of self-awareness and therefore performance.

I have been facilitating and coaching with clients from a variety of cultures and nationalities for over 20 years. I have spent the last 14 years in the Middle East (Kuwait and UAE) working with people in both the private sector and government organizations.
