"I feel like I've advanced more in a month than I've advanced in the last 2 years.
Jeff helped me with understanding what I really wanted out of my personal projects. He gave me many tools to break down my goals into actions and helped me implement those actions every day.
I would recommend Jeff to anyone looking to break through and find ways to fulfill their full potential."
— Enrique, Course Creator and Digital Marketing Consultant
PARTNERED WITH CLIENTS & COMPANIES
My clients are people pursuing big goals like:
Starting orleading a business (and scaling it to higher levels of innovation & growth)
Developing a feature film (and it winning a Sundance award)
Building an app or product (and getting accepted into Y Combinator or getting VC funding)
Writing a book (and hitting the Amazon bestseller list)
Exploring a meaningful side hustleor passion project (so they don't feel like mindless robots stuck in a day job they hate)
"When I first started working with Jeff, I was a little skeptical that he would understand how to help me.
As a general manager of a multi-million dollar company, it seemed like I always had more creative ideas than time to implement them.
I felt overwhelmed and unfocused.
From our very first meeting, Jeff was able to help me get out of my own way and find my focus. But now after every call with Jeff, I have clarity on my next action steps.
I've been crushing my goals and feel more laser-focused than ever before.
If you feel like you have lots of creative ideas but aren't making any meaningful progress on them, I highly recommend you partner with Jeff!"
- Kevin, General Manager & Business Leader
"I'm an actor, writer, and filmmaker.
There were many creative projects I knew I wanted to work on and skills I wanted to learn, but the sum of it all was often overwhelming to me.
It was so frustrating to feel unable to get myself to show up for what I felt like I wanted to do.
I was having a lot of trouble giving myself a coherent schedule to structure my day since my entire day is pretty much self-led.
Meeting Jeff has been a huge turning point for me. He's helped me to build structure into my life from scratch.
We worked together to test different experiments with my routine, and his regular accountability each day gave me a lot of comfort that we were figuring this out together
Since working with Jeff, I have completed the edit on a film, written several short stories, and most importantly built healthy, sustainable habits that structure my priorities on those previously intimidating unscheduled days."
- Dan, Actor, Writer, Filmmaker, and Voice-Over Professional

Kind Words from My Creative Badass Clients 🙌
"In my first month working with Jeff, he helped me follow through on a short film project I'd been needlessly putting off for a couple of years.
I'm an experienced filmmaker who's usually pretty self-motivated, but I was feeling stuck.
Jeff helped me reflect on what was causing my creative block, and not only listened to me, but actively encouraged me to move faster, be bolder, and trust my creative vision.
The daily texts were really helpful to keep me on track and keep the momentum up. I'm really proud of what I ended up shooting. Exactly what I was looking for in a coach!"
- Scott - Filmmaker, Los Angeles
“Never in my life have I felt as efficient as after starting to work with Jeff.
Being a freelancer and on a journey of launching my own business work life got a little overwhelming and hectic. Jeff helped me to create structure around my projects and that eased my anxiety.
I’ve never been this productive and efficient with my time before. It was a total game changer.
But that’s not all. As I go on working on my business so many questions and ideas come up along the way and I’m so grateful I can share them with Jeff who is not biased as a friend or a family member can be :)
If you are a creative person, hiring Jeff will take you steps closer to achieving your goals.”
- Nadia, Entrepreneur & Fashion Consultant
“I am an app developer transitioning from working in a structured company environment in a different domain to becoming an entrepreneur and developing my own product.
I had been stuck and overwhelmed for many months before I met Jeff, and am thrilled at my progress after working with him!
Jeff helped me rethink my approach to the project to make it more methodical and flow-generating.
With his support, I learned how to break down any task into manageable goals and to devote my focus on productive work that gets me moving forward.
I worked with Jeff to come up with a daily routine and developed many small but significant habits that make me feel more organized and optimistic every day!"
- Raghu, App Developer and Product Entrepreneur
“I'm the co-founder of a software startup, and I decided to see if coaching could help me get better at setting and achieving my goals.
My experience has far exceeded expectations. Jeff is a gem.
He asks great questions. He is also great at helping me clarify my goals, and then hold me accountable to keeping them.
I can't recommend Jeff highly enough as a coach. I almost don't want to write this review for fear that he will get too popular, leaving less time to work with me."
- Gabe, Co-Founder & CEO of Medical Tech Startup
“I initially signed up for coaching with Jeff during a transition period in my career, when I had to redefine my role inside my organization, identify my priorities, areas of focus, and how to have an impact during a phase of intense flux.
Jeff helped me a lot, bringing great clarity, perspective, and suggesting approaches or methods that helped me navigate this change.
Many of his suggestions are now part of my daily routine. We continued evolving the coaching relationship from there.
I feel Jeff can be a great partner for anyone in a leadership position, having to deal with culture change, innovation in organizations, and how to be effective during uncertain times."
- Gabriel, Marketing Executive & Managing Director
"In the last 3 months, I have gone from one of the lowest performers to the TOP producer on my team by a *wide margin*.
In fact, everyone on my team is asking what my "secret sauce" is and is picking my brain for advice now.
I'd say that is a 180-degree turnaround from where I was before working with Jeff! I started working with Jeff to help reinvigorate my software sales career.
The top thing I enjoy about working with Jeff is that he asks high-quality questions that help you to create more "flow states" - which is essentially a peak performance state which is *crucial* for success in my sales role."
- David, Account Services @ SalesForce

What You Get When You Partner with me as your Creative Coach
My 1-on-1 coaching is customizable to you and your situation.
It's intended to deliver the highest Return Per Minute on Your Time & Money as possible.
My 1:1 coaching isn’t a one-size-fits-all training program where you just watch a series of videos, fill out some worksheets, and then I pretend to read them. (Although you do get access to my courses, templates, tools, and curated resources that will give you direct advice).
This coaching is all about helping you get exactly what you need when you need it.
Live 1-on-1 Coaching Sessions via Zoom
We work on what is most pressing to you each session.
My goal for each session is to help bring you closer to achieving the results listed under my 3-pillar Creative Momentum System framework above.
Here's what to expect from me during our calls:
To be your accountability coach and make sure you are following through
To challenge you and get you out of your comfort zone
To encourage you to act bolder, more authentically, more purposefully
To bedirect and call you out on your own bullshit
Be your biggest fan and advocate - you're doing amazing shit!!!
My usual live coaching session rhythm is a 1-hour call every other week.
Daily Check-In Support via Text
To maximize your momentum, growth, and accountability, I also provide daily (except on Saturdays) check-ins via text.
Through my coaching experiences and PhD research on learning and creative performance over the last 10 years, I’ve identified a simple, yet effective text-based method to promote continuous momentum towards your biggest, creative goals.
It's called the RPA Method - Reflection, Prioritization, Accountability.
Reflection - To truly grow from experiences (and not just live through them), you need to engage in deliberate reflection. Reflection helps you explore, identify, and learn better ways of working on your creative projects so that achieving your biggest goals becomes more effortless and enjoyable.
Prioritization- The master skill for staying focused. Each day and week we are identifying what truly is most important (and what is NOT) to ensure you are spending time on what matters most.
Accountability - This is all about ensuring following-through and identifying any adjustments that need to be made to get back on track, should things not be going as originally planned.
Each day via text, I am helping you stay set clear goals, stick with them, and improve your effectiveness.
All it takes is 5 minutes a day and for you to simply respond to my questions honestly..
Access to 30 Day Creative Momentum Challenges with Live Coworking and Mastermind Sessions
I also run a30 Day Creative Momentum Challenge communitywhere I host weekly live coworking and mastermind sessions as well as a daily accountability check-in via Discord.
It's a fun group of dedicated creators and entrepreneurs challenging themselves to make daily progress on their creative goals - and when you work with me 1-on-1, you get access to everything that it involves.
I think you'll especially find value from the virtual coworking sessions that happen every Tuesday and Thursday. They are so great for focused momentum and added accountability.
Lifetime Access to my internationally acclaimed Domestika course, How to Achieve Your Creative Goals
With 17 lessons and a Creative Goal Achievement workbook, How to Achieve Your Creative Goals will give you clear guidance and strategies to help you become more productive and bring your ideas to life.
We'll reference many of the tools and templates in this course in our coaching together.
Bonus Guides, Tools, Resources

I help creative entrepreneurs bring their biggest ideas to life and reach their next level of creative success
My mission is to help 1 million creative people (like you) bring their biggest ideas to life, grow their impact, and become their best creative selves (aka become CreativeBadasses).
The values that drive me are creativity, curiosity, compassion, and courage.
I’ve worked 1-on-1 with hundreds of creative people and presented to thousands of others across the world from every continent except Antarctica (for some reason penguins aren’t into self-development).
My clients come from all creative industries - from technology, design, marketing, software development, filmmaking, writing, art, music, architecture, content creators & influencers, professional speaking, academia, non-profit, and other small and mid-sized creative businesses.
These are people who are pursuing big goals like starting or leading a business (and scaling it to higher levels of innovation & growth), writing + filming a feature film (and it winning a Sundance award), building an app or product (and getting accepted into Y Combinator or getting VC funding), writing a book (and hitting the Amazon bestseller list) or even exploring a meaningful side hustle or passion project.
Here are 3 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me
Thing #1: My last name is a Polish last name. My Polish great-grandfather Kazimierz Fajans discovered the chemical element, Protactinium, and ate lunch with Albert Einstein at a table my parents now have in their dining room.
Thing #2: I have a PhD in Positive Organizational Psychology from Claremont Graduate University, where I studied under Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, world-renowned author of Flow. My research focused on how to help people learn, develop, and lead more effectively to better achieve creative goals.
Thing #3: I am an avid music creator and guitar player - and since the birth of my amazingly curious, creative, and energetic 3.5-year-old son, Hendrix, I have been creating funky fresh kids music that captures the authenticity, joy, craziness, and fun of toddlers and parents experiencing the world together. This is NOT anything like the typical cookie-cutter children's music out there. The president of the National Association of Record Industry Professionals (NARIP) described my EP, Trash Truck, as "Beastie Boys for Babies" 🤣.
I'm here to help you achieve your creative goals - whether it's launching your business, finishing your script, or simply bringing more creativity and meaningfulness to your everyday life.
Jeff's coaching has been an important component in my career transformation away from Corporate America and back to working for myself.
He has helped me reach levels of ideation and discovery I could never have done on my own.
This has helped me uncover more avenues of creativity and resources available to me to make difficult and important choices this year to ensure aligning my career to my life purpose and overall health needs.
I am looking forward to a phase II of Jeff's coaching now that I am successfully transitioned to working for myself and seeing how I can tap him to set a great course forward with all the passion and direction from within I've gained from having my purpose behind now in my work!
