You have 58,000+ career coaches to choose from. Why should you work with me?


As a 20-something-year-old career coach working with Silicon Valley’s top talent, I am thriving in an industry where my peers are twice my age.

Why? Because I deliver insights you will not find anywhere else. That is my promise to you.

I help you rethink, reimagine, and recreate your career — and your life.

I am not for everybody. I run an application-only coaching practice because I am crystal clear on my Zone of Genius.

My Zone of Genius is connecting the dots between where you are and where you want to go. Most often, this is connecting the dots between your career story (and fabulousness) and the companies and positions you are targeting in your job search.

People hire me because I have the unique ability to help them slice through their limiting beliefs and own their fabulousness.

I rethink, reimagine, and recreate how you tell your career story, show up at work, and live your life.

I am an expert at high tech and a trusted confidant to some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley.

I know high tech and Silicon Valley inside out because I have spoken one-to-one with recruiters and hiring managers at nearly every Fortune 100/500 company. As a result, my clients have landed jobs at Facebook, LinkedIn, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, you name it.

I am one of only a handful of millennials accepted into the invite-only Forbes Coaches Council. I am a proud member of the Gay Coaches Alliance as a gay life coach and career coach. Additionally, I serve as a Stability Leader with The Stability Network, a growing movement of people in the workforce speaking out about their mental health challenges to inspire others.

I am a trusted career expert with features in dozens of leading publications, including Business Insider, CNBC, CNN, Fast Company, Forbes, Fortune, Glassdoor, Ladders, and The Muse. As a professional speaker, I regularly present to Fortune 100/500 companies, hyper-growth startups, and universities on professional development, personal branding, and mental health in the workplace.

I am deeply committed to your success.

I have a single goal when I coach you — to create a space where you can achieve what you never imagined possible. I want you to believe in yourself as much as I believe in you. You are truly fabulous and you deserve to own it.

After telling me your biggest goals and dreams, as well as what is holding you back from achieving them, I help you see inside yourself, slice through your limiting beliefs, and own your fabulousness. We craft a plan — together — to achieve what seems impossible.

Coaching is my craft, my calling, and one of my greatest joys in life. The only thing I love more than coaching is coffee. And, of course, Disneyland.

Oh, yeah, I am a proud Disneyland Legacy Passholder.

With every client (that includes you!), I deliver a “Disneyland Experience”— a fun, memorable, one-of-a-kind experience you cannot find anywhere else.

While your results will vary from past clients, they will be anything but ordinary. That’s my promise to you.

Kyle was amazing to work with!

His process helps connect what makes you fabulous with what jobs and recruiters are looking for. I utilized his Career Coach services and I have never felt firmer in my career goals and how to get there. By the time I was done working with him I found the work-from-home job I was looking for in tech… I recommend working with Kyle if you are feeling unsure of your career path or if you’re sure of your career path and looking to stand out in a sea of applicants. Kyle was organized, flexible, and empathetic to the job hunting process. He will never fit you into a mold but will design sessions around what will benefit you the most.”
