Pursue Your Passion With Purpose

Welcome to Climbing and Running – thank you for visiting.  This site exists to help you Climb Higher and Pursue Your Passion With Purpose.   I’m so fortunate to be one of a few people in the world to have run a marathon and summit the seven highest mountains on all seven continents.  That story, however, is something I did, but not who I am.  The truth is that at age 45, I was an ordinary out-of-shape guy, stuck in a rut with a gut, and dogged by a nagging, restless feeling that there was more to life than this.

The message is simple: if a middle-aged guy can reinvent his life by running seven grueling marathons and summiting the highest mountains, you can achieve your goals and dreams too.  And it doesn’t matter if what you dream of is a small tweak or a radical do-over of the life you are living today.  Whether you long to discover something that will fill you with passion and purpose, or whether you have identified your dream but don’t quite know how to get from here to there, this site can help you navigate the journey ahead.

Marathon Communications LLC offers experienced, customized speaking, personalized individual or team coaching and leadership development, in-person courses or online digital platform learning – all designed to help you and/or your team achieve greatness.  My experience in multinational Fortune 500 companies such as AT&T, Ericsson, Microsoft & Juniper plus two late-stage start-ups in executive leadership positions in functions including sales, marketing, channel, development and general management while living and working in Europe, Asia and the US provide a unique insight into personal and leadership development, team building and business success.

My wife Michelle and I are the proud parents of five children and five (soon to be more) grandchildren between us and currently live and work in Singapore, transitioning to Seattle in January 2018.  We believe in mindfully donating our time and resources to cause-based organizations and people in need with the intention of helping make the world a better place.

“Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.”
