My Story

"There are no limits, only plateaus"

— Bruce Lee

By age 8 I figured out that money and prestige were flimsy life goals. I decided my mission would be:

  • To be of service to the world, and work to end suffering.

  • To live life as a joyful adventure—even the pain and loss.

  • To constantly improve my mind, body, heart, guts, and spirit.

After graduate school I worked in politics, volunteered in a UN refugee camp, and traveled to 50 countries.

I was doing important work, but hadn’t yet accessed the genius and power to deliver at my highest potential.

I was stuck—demoralized and hopeless, fighting alcohol and depression— telling myself, “I know I’m capable of so much more!”

“Anyone who proposes to do good must not expect people to roll stones out of his way, but must accept his lot calmly if they even roll a few more upon it.”

― Albert Schweitzer 

I went to work on myself instead of fixing the world. I read voraciously. I discovered powerful coaches. I found elite fitness. I found my life’s partner and started a family. I beat depression and tamed alcohol.

I stepped into my calling as a serial entrepreneur who is solving the world’s problems. I started a social enterprise to bring solar lighting to African villages, a men's lifestyle brand, a literary magazine, and a writer training company.

And I discovered my power as a coach who helps others grow into their own inborn, unlimited potential.

Since 2017 I have been coaching exceptional people who want to get out of their own way and finally start doing what they believe is most important in this life and this world.
