Marv brings a unique combination of skills and experience to his work as an executive coach. Starting in high school, he spent 20 years in the technology industry, initially in R&D and then in Sales & Marketing, at such companies as Apple. He then spent 14 years in private practice as a licensed psychotherapist and executive coach. Hearing the call to work on hunger in his community, Marv switched careers again, founding and leading ExtraFood: a county-wide, 7/365 food recovery organization that in his 8 years of leadership rescued and delivered 5 million pounds of excess fresh food from businesses and schools, and reached 8,000 vulnerable people per week. Having returned to executive coaching, Marv is a careful listener, empathic, collaborative, pragmatic, and action-oriented in his work with individuals, pairs, and groups of coaching clients. And, he’s never far from his sense of humor. Marv holds an M.S. in Counseling Psychology from Dominican University of California, an M.S. in Computer Science from Stanford University, and is a Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude graduate of UC Berkeley’s undergraduate program in Computer Science. Marv is the 2022 winner of Dominican’s Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award, is one of 5 Bay Area leaders who received the 2018 Silver Jefferson Award for Public Service, and was awarded the Pacific Sun’s 2014-15 Hero of Marin Award for Innovation. He is the proud father of two wonderful daughters, and in his spare time is a passionate songleader, singer, cyclist, and poet.
