The DOL Foundation is managed by a core team of diverse veterans; each passionate about giving back to the communities we grew up within.
Some DOL Foundation Driving Thoughts:
We don’t have full-time staff on salary, office space(s), or marketing consultants.
We DO have a Christian calling to serve those who’ve given so much for our great nation.
We are highly selective in who we allow to coach for us and what certifications we offer. We are driven to help and will use our experiential knowledge to save you from making some of the same mistakes we’ve made.

My passion lies in helping people succeed. I’ve used this passion as fuel through years in the Army Special Operations and coaching rugby. It now drives me to create better leaders. I believe better leaders create better organizations, better organizations create better communities, and better communities will create a better world.
I retired from the Army in 2009 as a Green Beret Lieutenant Colonel following 25 years of service. I have a broad range of experience, ranging from driving tanks five years older than me; to engineering in the Arctic, to leading Green Berets on complex and dangerous missions around the world. Following retirement, I worked as a Business Development Manager, Director, and Chief Strategy Officer. In 2017, I pivoted my consulting business to align with how I operate and run our business purpose and re-branded to Tribe+Purpose. We focus on creating better leaders to lead high-performing teams.
I also had the unique experience of being part of new organizations and creating these new units into cohesive, effective organizations. This experience ranged from arctic conditions in Alaska to counter-terrorism units in Iraq and Afghanistan to NATO Special Operations Headquarters. Being part of these organizations from the ground up has given me immense experience in creating successful organizations.
I worked as a Business Development Manager, Director, and Chief Strategy Officer for several companies. In 2010, I founded LTO Enterprises, LLC, to help businesses win more contracts. In 2021, I rebranded LTO to become Tribe + Purpose, aligning with how we operate and our business purpose. We focus on creating better leaders to lead high-performing teams. I am a certified business performance coach, project director, and trainer through The Institute of Project Management.
I’ve used those skills and experiences to build successful teams, business units, and companies in the business world. I’ve led capture efforts and proposal development for large and small firms. These efforts have ranged from small task orders to multiple large entity Joint Ventures. In addition to my business development efforts, I ran multi-million-dollar programs for the government spread across the US and overseas.
I possess a BS-Engineering Technology from Texas A&M University; MA-International Affairs, Naval Postgraduate School; Certified Professional Coach, Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC); COR.E Leadership & Performance Dynamics Specialist, IPEC; Certified Project Director and Certified Project Trainer, Institute of Project Management (IPM); USA Rugby Level 300 Coach.
I create better leaders, host a podcast, build high-performance teams and wrote the book Enable Your Teams Success.
I live in Colorado with my wife, Suzanne. We have three grown children living in the USA.
