Meet Our Founder
Innovation starts with a dream of what's possible.
As a child, I grew up watching Star Trek: The Next Generation. I watched the crew of the Enterprise boldly go into the unknown, travel through space and time, meet alien civilizations and have the coolest technology: the replicator and the holodeck.
Star Trek showed me anything is possible and my passion for the possible led me to pursue a degree in graphic design. In the world of creativity, there's no limits. Have you ever had a moment like that? What do you remember?
The belief in what’s possible, is what I loved about design. But it wasn’t only that. It was the magic of working with other brilliant minds who also believed anything was possible. The combination of all our minds together, extended possibilities beyond anything I could imagine.
I worked directly with talented Creative Directors who continually challenged me to innovate. They saw my potential and pushed me to dream bigger.
Armed with innovative mentalities & tactics, I later became an innovator at State Farm and an innovation catalyst at Chick-fil-A.
Being the lead to create a culture of innovation all across Chick-fil-A helped me find my second passion: empowering others to do more than they imagined – just like my design mentors did for me. I had the joy of transforming everyday employees into confident innovators. Nothing made me happier than to see people's inner-innovator become fully unleashed and put on display for all to see.
I've had countless joy-filled moments of seeing people's lives transformed through the power of innovation. Empowering people with innovation allows them to utilize their gifts and passions, leading to more meaningful, fulfilling work.
That's what innovation does for people. It transforms lives.
Today, I'm the founder of Abound Innovation Inc. and it's my mission to help organizations unleash the innovative potential of their employees by transforming them into confident innovators.
I believe you have innovative potential.
I believe you can become an innovator.
This is what’s possible. Interested? Let’s boldly go, together.

Let me help you unlock innovation for you and your team.

What People Said
Abound Innovation is my go to for Innovation Education. Whether I am trying to provide foundational courses to new innovators, or need some additional education for the more advanced practitioners, Abound is able to provide excellent, engaging courses which always get great reviews from participants. This is the only innovation course provider that I have found which always creates practical application for each topic. Innovation can feel very "up in the air" and lofty, but Abound breaks down these concepts well to ensure participants can become applied innovators, which is the ultimate goal. Very happy with my experience!
Kate Thomas, Chick-fil-A
Working in the space of deep technology startups, it can be challenging to find practitioners who have both the experience, as well as the teaching skills to effectively convey what it takes to bring an innovation to market. Leo and Abound Innovations Inc did just that. Leo is a fantastic communicator and eloquently broke down the desired topic into practical takeaways that could be put into practice right away by our participants.
It was extraordinary to see how LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® allowed people to communicate and share very deep and complicated things about themselves to strangers. It’s clearly an incredible tool for driving connection and communication among team members. And it was a total blast, too!
Sr. Brand Manager, Innovation - Tom’s of Maine (Colgate-Palmolive)
I have gotten the best training from such an amazing innovator. Leo has made me feel like I can do anything I put my mind to. I have become more confident in myself from the encouragement Leo provided. Do not pass up the opportunity to learn from Leo. He will not only teach you he will SHOW you how to innovate well. He will push you and never stop encouraging you because he sees the potential in you.
I love the efficiency of the session -- it was extremely well organized and well-run. Leo was great -- his calm demeanour provided a great vibe for the team and the session was well-thought out and executed.
He was super helpful and patient with the team. This session did not feel stale or repetitive as other sessions have felt and it was so thorough that by the end of the session I felt confident with the outcome.
