And I would like to ask you a question...
Do you ever wonder why your life feels or goes the way it does?
Your wondering is a sign that you are on a GREAT QUEST. And you've been on this QUEST, perhaps without even realizing it, for a VERY LONG TIME.
In a world filled with reasons to externally define your actions, the way you think and feel, and what you should want, your QUEST has probably taken many unexpected turns. And I'm imagining some have really challenged your capacity to deal with them.
My personal quest has led me to explore many mysteries about how we survive, how we find our power, the role direct and truthful communication plays in building deeply connected relationships, and how to create life moments to be endlessly fulfilling. In other words, I've discovered a whole lot about strength, vulnerability, and self expression.
I have relentlessly studied the mechanics associated with growing, evolving, and transforming.
I teach growth-minded people how to connect with their inner world so they can create a more powerful, loving, evolving life. I am a catalyst, pioneer, facilitator and bravery seeker. I firmly believe you are the source of your life and can provide useful insights to help you tap into it.
You Can Always Find Me Engaged In Growthwork!
I have spent much of my career working in companies, many family-owned, facilitating, teaching, guiding and coaching them to become responsible for their cultures, management and ways of working together.
While in those companies, I've gotten to work with thousands of people who have chosen to be committed to their own development throughout their whole life.
I'm an entrepreneur at my core.
Not one to sit around and wait for things to happen, there's a life story behind that, but it's served me well in terms of keeping me seeking answers to the complex aspects of BEING, even when things don't go my way.
Sometime in my early 20's, I became very committed to working on the inside of my Self as a method of achieving the external dreams I'd set for myself.
By 27, I had created a model of self-development that is still in use today. At this point, I've logged in thousands and thousands of real-time hours learning, researching, and experimenting with exactly what happens when we go inside the Self and really occupy the entirety of who we're capable of BEING.
One of the most important reasons I engage in Growthwork is because I want to create the life I want without having to be good, competent, positive, or emotionally appropriate. I want access to ALL of what I was designed to HAVE.

I am first and foremost a student, I do my own self-development work FIRST and have availed myself of hundreds of extraordinary teachers, modalities, personal mentors, and have always had a personal therapist, coach or spiritual teacher.

I've Helped Leaders Manage With Heart and Humanity
There's nothing more gratifying than getting to know people from the inside out, being able to show them how to generate more freedom for themselves and help them get in touch with all that is possible for them.
With every step of the way, I've been inspired by the idea that people can transform the way things go for them.
I think that's the way it's supposed to be - we draft off of each other. The more I can really free myself up from being closed and afraid, the more others will. We're all connected.
