Nat has accelerated the careers of hundreds of professionals of all ages as consultant, coach, and business leader. 

His latest startup Futures Forge, a challenger to the current university system, is inspired by the success Nat had developing recent grads from Ivy+ schools in the firm he founded, Stroud International. Stroud’s success helping Global 1000 businesses and the rapid learning of early employees, Stroud won “Best Small Consulting Firm” 7 times in 8 years. 

Nat’s mission with Futures Forge is to provide gifted students the opportunity to develop the core skills and attributes that matter far more for career success than which college you went to, and to seed a market of viable alternatives to a 4-year college degree to create competition and strategic choice for families everywhere.

Nat has a Masters of Engineering from Oxford University and studied design, manufacturing and management at Cambridge University, in addition to executive education coursework in Harvard Business School's Owner/President Management program.
