About

Coach.  Author.  World Traveler.  I have been many other things in this lifetime as well.  Perhaps my best ability has been to motivate people through uncovering certain truths the universe has to offer.  This website is a collection of those truths.

I started improving my body when I was 12 years old.  I would come home from school and exercise every day without fail with small cement weight equipment.  I mostly bench pressed, did bicep curls, and ran sprints.  Arnold Schwarzenegger was my hero.

At he age of 20 I started improving my mind.  I read everything I could get my hands on.  History was my favorite subject and I found the World Wars absolutely fascinating.  Then I started reading all of the classic authors – Poe, Melville, Dumas, Tolstoy, Shakespeare, Hemingway, Whitman, Cervantes, Dickens, Twain, Wilde, Fitzgerald,  Kipling, Orwell, Salinger, Faulkner, Thoreau, Kafka, and Kurt Vonnegut.  While this contributed greatly to the construct of my mind, something was lacking, and I started to realize the mind can never make up for what the spirit craves.

At the age of 28 I started working on my spirit.  Reading Eckhart Tolle, Don Miguel Ruiz, Viktor Frankl, and others as well as listening to Ram Dass and going on meditation retreats expanded knowledge I already had and unlocked new understanding of who I truly wanted to be, how I truly wanted to act towards others, and who I truly wanted around me on a day to day basis.

I‘ve been an employee, a business owner, a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, a best man, an author, a confidant, a mentor, a leader, and sometimes a follower.  I try to make my opinions as unbiased as possible, but if I am recommending something, that knowledge has come from life experience.  While every person is not for everybody, my hope is that you find something here that resonates with you.  If it does, pass it along to those you love, this world can never have enough of a good message.
