I’m Tyrell Mara. I’m a coach, consultant, leader and storyteller.
When I was nine years old, I decided that I wanted to play NCAA Division 1 basketball at an American university. Over the next 10 years, I pursued that goal like a pit bull. I trained, stretched, often failed, sometimes succeeded – and eventually, I captained the Portland State University team to two National Tournament appearances.
That experience taught me the power of setting audacious goals and pouring everything you have into achieving them. I realized that nothing is sweeter than building a devoted team, getting everyone on board, and working together toward a goal so big, it’s almost outlandish.
Two other things you need to know about me:
I’m an Introvert
Leadership is in my DNA
Strange combination, right?
But these two qualities inform everything I do – both as an athlete and a consultant. I process, observe and strategize (introvert) and then share what I’ve learned to guide and teach people working to overcome a variety of challenges (leadership).
My consulting work helps inspired organizations to harness the power of digital communication, in order to attract and engage a passionate community. As a coach, I work with global businesses and athletes alike to help them overcome strategic, personal, and communication challenges and achieve their loftiest goals.

You’ll also find me traveling the world in search of the perfect wave, ideally with my amazing wife, Tash, by my side.
