Born in the US of mixed Indian and Dutch parentage, he grew up in Quebec City, Canada before joining the Canadian Forces as a military aerospace research and development engineer. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics from the Royal Military College of Canada (Kingston, 1984) and a Master’s in Imaging Science from the Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, 1990). After 15 years of service, he left the military to launch a technology consulting business in Calgary, Alberta, then was involved in a major software development project at the end of the 1990s. A decisive, soul-searching moment in 1999 triggered a career change which led to the founding of The Visioneering Institute. His teachers and mentors include the renowned coach Thomas J. Leonard (CoachU Coach Training Program), Context Associated (The Pursuit Of Excellence/ The Wall/ Advancement/ Mastery/ Presentation Dynamics), Laurie Beth Jones (Certified Path Coach), Gay and Katie Hendricks, Richard Barrett (Corporate Transformation Tools) and Michael Port (Certified Book Yourself Solid Coach) and other personal development and leadership short courses.
