Ladies and gentlemen, presenting my insider-outsider brain.  Uniquely evolved to help reserved leaders become extraordinary communicators.


I’ve thrived as an officer in two Fortune 100 Companies, bootstrapped a small business into a medium-sized one, and built a vibrant startup. I’ve had enough boardroom wins an butt-whuppins to be useful to you.

I built blue chip brands in my first career and now use those same marketing tools and techniques to help quiet clients understand, reach and win their people over. Don’t mail it in. It’s a campaign. You’re the product.

I built Shyne Advisors because I AM you. Let me help by using amazing cheats I gleaned during my career as a reserved guy in a noisy world.

As CEO of Second City Works, I used comedy and improv to help over 5,000 senior leaders connect better with their people. Wild success. Category changing impact. Co-wrote a bestselling leadership communications book. Oh, and I laughed my ass off.
