This passion began early in college when I discovered the classical study of rhetoric. Since then, the study of how effective communications (whether a word, picture, idea or action) could persuade an audience (whether individuals, groups or even nations) towards a particular response continues to fascinate me to this day. This has developed into a lifelong pursuit to study what I call, “the art and science of Influence” (in all its fair and foul forms!).

I’ve been fortunate to have worked with amazing people. Some of them have very kind things to say about me.
Working closely with Leigh has been one of the highlights of my career with Uber. Amidst continuous reputational and leadership challenges in 2017, we stood strong together to ensure the right kind of messaging is delivered to policymakers, regulators and the general public. Leigh is a communications expert who is continuously optimistic, extremely efficient with his time and always offering new ideas to solve various problems. Leigh would be a fantastic addition to any team, any time.
Leigh is a hardworking, strategic communications lead in a region that is extraordinarily broad and complex. I’ve found him to be an effective communicator with press, government, and advocacy groups alike. And he’s got a great sense of humor to boot!
