Essays on Creative Process.
Meet the Creative Agents of Global Change.
Welcome to Gateways Coaching
I coach artists and creative professionals in transition worldwide: photographers, painters, journalists and authors, designers, and others in creative fields.
At various stages of career growth, creative professionals encounter unique obstacles, on the outer level of marketing or inner level of creative process, or both.
Gateways Coaching helps artists and creative professionals of all kinds to master the creative process, clarify goals, and take sensible new risks for career advancement. Learn about Gateways career coaching or targeted coaching services for individual projects, presentation services and marketing support.
Enjoy the extensive articles and essays on the site written for creative careers, and feel free to contact me with your questions. I’m available to coach with you via phone and internet nationally and internationally, or locally in Brooklyn or Manhattan.
