“I believe that the teacher within is not the voice of conscience but of individual identity, intuition and integrity. It speaks not of what ought to be, but of what is real, of what is true.”
When we live authentically, when we take responsibility, when we make the decision to live from our hearts and not our heads, when we choose Miracles over Illusions, and when we choose Love over Ego…
We hear more clearly, we see more clearly, we feel more clearly. What you can expect from me… I am genuine, I am sincere, and I am authentic. I am honest, I am caring, and I do not give up. I will find a way, and I will do anything I can to help others find the answers they are searching for.
Through my own expedition and exploration, I have learned that when we open our eyes and bare witness to the miracles that surround us, in all that we are, in our entirety, in every moment… By living fearlessly, through the eyes of fascination, in total connection to our deepest existence, we can achieve anything that we truly desire. By using everything I have learned; all of the tools, techniques and daily practices; by listening; unconditionally, with no judgment; in complete love and presence, in all that I am; in my wholeness and in my entirety, I extend to You - my support, friendship, guidance and mentorship, in business, health and spiritual endeavor.
“You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it."

I’m originally from Pennsylvania and focusing on personal development and encouraging collaborative growth in others has become my life's work.
As a young adult I enlisted in the United States Air Force and served as a contract negotiator. The next 10 years I focused on being an entrepreneur securing government contracts internationally while traveling continually.
Three years ago building for profit ventures ceased. It was at this time that time my life's purpose became fully compatible with work-life with the launch of a new nonprofit venture.
Columbia's SMBI program was precisely the remedy needed to develop the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual insights that are graced into existence when spirit and people come together.
