In this super fun episode, my amazing, wise and entertaining peer coach and lawyer friend, Angela Han, interviews me on her podcast, Fit to Practice. Angela has kindly let me share her recording on The Unlikely Artist. I think you’ll enjoy this episode because you get to hear what it’s like when I’m the one in the hot seat. Plus we laugh a lot.

Angela and I talk about mystical experiences and coincidences, radical career shifts (which, when you break them down, aren’t as radical as they appear), false assumptions about what it means to be “too young” (her) or “too old” (me), and why there’s no such thing as “silly desires”.

Fit to Practice is where Angela teaches lawyers how to feel safe and secure in their own skin, whether it’s by loving their jobs, growing their dream business, or simply remembering who they are. You can find out more about Angela on

And – great news – Angela will move over to the hot seat in a couple weeks so I can interview her, and I’ll be publishing that episode here.

I’m a former international tax lawyer and senior partner of Ernst & Young in Toronto, where I serviced banks and other large multinationals and led a large group of professionals.

My life expanded when I left the law in 2014 to learn how to paint, something I’d always dreamt of doing, but had no reason to believe was possible for me. After a couple years of painting and selling my work, I became passionate about helping other people who yearn to feel more personally fulfilled, invigorated and soul connected in their lives every day, and I became certified as a life coach.

I now spend my time painting, coaching, and creating live events at GRACE Studio (more formally, the “George Russell Academy of Creative Expansion”) in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada. And, of course, producing this podcast for you.
