To make a long story short…
I haven’t followed a typical path in life and there have been some major obstacles, but I’ve been lucky enough to learn deeply from a wide variety of experiences and interests.
I played a video game semi-professionally for six years, built a career in digital operations and management, started & ran a nonprofit, and built a fulfilling, healthy lifestyle that has allowed my passion for learning & helping others to run wild. I’ve found that podcasting is a great way to share the highlights, and I love working directly with people to help them thrive in their personal and professional lives.
I'm deeply curious and have many interests, but some of my biggest influences are meditation, philosophy, art, nutrition, exercise, and the behavioral & evolutionary sciences. These interests and my many experiences gives me a diverse tool kit to help.
I like to think of my work falling into two main categories of improvement. Developing the way we think about the world and the way we experience it. The two are intimately connected and compliment each other deeply. Because of this, the line between them is often blurred, but I believe it’s important to distinguish them since it’s natural to undervalue one or the other. When we develop them together it leads to wisdom, happiness and a deep connection beyond ourselves.
We all face challenges in our lives, and my goal is to reframe those challenges as opportunities for growth. If we can do that, I'm confident we can not only overcome them, but create a future where everyone has access to the tools needed to live a fulfilling life.
