After climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in 1984, his sense of personal mission emerged – helping people lead more meaningful lives and be of more service to others. He founded and ran Obik for 10 years – a premier career intelligence company whose clients included the National Association of Independent Schools, PBS, a career partner to Blackboard and US News & World Report, Peterson’s Guides, Chase Manhattan’s Mentor Matching Initiative, and the Arthur Ashe Foundation. His personal assessment tool offers insights into personality attributes, intelligences, and motivators and how these converge to indicate certain roles and personal development strategies that enable one to enjoy, be good at, and really “fit into” their work. “My favorite part of HYPE was discovering new businesses and organizations I would have never known about.” -Past HYPE Student
