See yourself, differently.

A storytelling and performance coaching intensive.

I am over a decade into a daydream that is finally real.

I’ve built a hotel in the most human city on earth–New Orleans–where I can host leaders to develop their most authentic life stories.

The hotel is deeply personal, named after my mother and contains my latest work called Son of a Ghost. The space serves as setting and character for us.
