Man’s greatest longing is for freedom. Man is a longing for freedom. Freedom is the very essential core of human consciousness: Love is its circumference and freedom is its center. These two fulfilled, life has no regret. And they both are fulfilled together, never separately. —Osho
I am passionate about helping people live the life they want to live by focusing on what they do best. I am a believer in the adage, play to your strengths! This shows up in my career as well as my volunteer work with men and relationship programs.
I have always seen life as a unique journey…an adventure. I spent much of my twenties proving this belief. At 19 I took my first trip east of the Mississippi on a solo backpacking trip to Ireland and the UK. At age 21 I traveled to Kenai, Alaska and signed up for the summer commercial salmon fishing. After college, I moved to a ski resort and worked most nights, skied every day. At 25 I ran the LA marathon on 2 months of training. That same year I spent 3 months backpacking Costa Rica on about 12 bucks a day. It is fair to say I enjoy exploring what life has to offer.
I began my professional career in Los Angeles, working in a number of roles at Mark Burnett Productions, the creators of game changing television programs Survivor, Apprentice, Contender, and many others. I worked my way into a position as Personal Coordinator to Mr. Burnett. In this close relationship to one of the most successful television producers in the industry, I was privileged with an inside perspective on what it is like to be a leader in one of the most high intensity industries in the world.
I also learned that I wanted more from life that what television could offer.
I moved on to a non-profit in Boulder, Colorado —about as far away from LA as I could get. I followed up this experience working with a few start-up’s until making the move to create my own online marketing technology consulting business.
I see my life as an ever unfolding evolutionary process. To that end, I dive in headfirst to philosophy, eastern spirituality, Integral theory, shamanism, personal development, therapy, bodywork and any other tool or methodology I can find to increase my freedom and fullness in this world.
There is a unique power for me in mens-specific personal development. I have always related comfortably with other men and feel a genuine brotherhood with all men. I also think that most men spend their whole lives “going it alone” and not seeking support or encouragement around what is really important to them. I think men’s work offers a unique solution to that problem.
I am in a men’s group that meets bi-monthly and volunteer with several men’s specific transformational programs.
Currently residing in Boulder, Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, enjoying life, and exploring relationships.
I enjoy close community, stimulating entrepreneurial ventures, and weekend excursions to the Ski hills or trails rides on the motorcycle.
