Born and raised in Namibia, then South Africa, Gordon arrived in the USA 30 years ago, alone and unprepared after backpacking for 8 months experiencing 11 different countries and cultures. At 25 years old, needless to say he was unconsciously incompetent about life in general and therefore unaware of what any huge, new foreign country had in store for him.
Without a formal education, a single contact to reach out to, about $270.00 in cash, $800.00 available on the one credit card he had, he put his first foot on American soil.
And so began his journey...
The only plausible plan was being prepared to learn something from every situation, his mistakes and equally important, other people's mistakes. There was an abundance of opportunity to do so! He very soon realized that if he wanted to "make it," he would have to commit to doing whatever it takes, work hard, get smart, learn, listen, pay good attention and be prepared to question absolutely everything he heard and saw. He had to develop and maintain a feasible belief system and act accordingly.
30 years later, he is happy to say that he has exceeded his own and everybody else's expectations. He is grateful for so much and would like to share some of 'what worked' and how he applied himself under various precarious circumstances, to ensure a beneficial outcome.
His efforts and determination have rewarded him with everything he needs, most of what he wants and a strong desire to 'carry on', to be positive and share his good fortune with others, perhaps not as fortunate, but capable nonetheless. Today he is less concerned with winning and far more drawn to creating win-win experiences.
With many lucrative and exciting business ventures under his belt, including the most recent 16 year stint in Business Development and Marketing in the Scientific High-Technology Manufacturing Community, dealing exclusively with Physicists, PhD. Nuclear Research Scientists, Mechanical and Chemical Engineers he is a consultant to World Wide Government Synchrotron Radiation Facilities, Universities, IAEA, DOE, NIH, NIST, Homeland Security, NASA, and other Biological and Industrial Research Organizations and Instrument Manufacturers.
Gordon, is currently the CEO of DetectorTech, an agency serving the above research community and also happens to be a three time Author, a Keynote Speaker, Certified Professional Development Trainer, Court Ordered Anger Management and Batterers Intervention Facilitator, a dedicated husband and father who self-actualizes by training people from all walks of life to be ‘Strong Forever’ in both Life and Business. He earned his California Real Estate License in 1989, his Series 7 (Stock Brokers) and State Insurance License in 1992 and his ACS (Advanced Communicator Silver) in 2015 from Toastmasters International.
Above all, Gordon simply has a knack for helping people to recognize and develop their innate strengths and skills to maximize their potential. You will see the light immediately!

In addition to being a professional coach, he also presents to general audiences in the mental health community, speaking on the topics of self-improvement and life management.
In parallel he enjoys learning about modern neuroscience and NLP strategies and how they pertain to one's ability to self-regulate, for the betterment of everyone’s health, wealth and happiness.
As a collaborative, solution-focused coach he provides much needed support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.
Integrated coaching techniques and helpful assignments offer a highly personalized journey, tailored specifically to address your unique challenges. His ability to adjust to the “present environment”, will ensure that no matter who people think you are, no matter who you think you are, and no matter who you really are, he will find the way to relate and effectively support you, without judgment, prejudice or preconceived ideas.
