Hi, I'm Nina.

I’m an innovation, creativity, and communication expert who loves exploding creative boundaries.

That’s how, for almost two decades, I founded and bootstrapped an award-winning, multi-million dollar entertainment company.

With grit and determination, I built the company from the ground up, creating programs and performances that reached over a million people worldwide.

The best part was:

It didn’t matter if we were in a production meeting or a budget meeting, we learned to bring the same creative mindset to everything we did.

But I wanted to use the skills I’d developed as a creative leader, award-winning director, and playwright to inspire even MORE people.

As I moved into coaching and consulting in the corporate world, I realized that organizations are FULL of brilliant individuals and teams who are stuck. Meaning: There’s a limit to how much they see is possible.

So, I developed a system that integrated the tools I’d learned as a creative leader and artist to uplift people in the workforce to their highest potential.

Today, my work is all about freeing brilliance.

No matter whether I’m coaching clients from the tech or web3 worlds, supporting wealth managers or venture capitalists, or empowering educators and nonprofits, I ALWAYS focus on the same thing:

Helping you and your organization move beyond ANY limit.

When most people try to get unstuck, they focus on the PROBLEM and don’t get anywhere.

But, if we want to find SOLUTIONS, we need to think OUTSIDE the box and explore new ways of seeing the world.

When we open our minds in that way, it can lead to a profound shift in what we believe we can do—whether we’re building a breakthrough product or working toward our next round of funding.

It’s then we can unleash our FULL brilliance and build engaged, high-performing organizations that can adapt to meet ANY challenge.
