Hi, I’m Caelan.

I’m an American digital nomad living in New Zealand, and I have spent ten years running an online business while traveling the world with my young family.

I am a dynamic speaker, trainer, and business coach, who combines the skills of a theatrical performer and technical geek to make compelling virtual experiences.

My best work includes training teams on playful productivity and hybrid culture, and coaching business owners on how to get to the next level with their personal platform.
