I was born and raised in New York City and thrived in its ethos of diversity. NYC was my first school of hard knocks. It created a deep interest in understanding humans from all walks of life.
As I grew into a young man, I felt lost and broken within. I believed enlisting in the US Marines was the medicine I needed at the time. The Marines instilled discipline, leadership principles, situational awareness, and provided me with brotherhood. Although it prepared me for life in many ways, I could still feel something missing.
After leaving the marines, my ego chased status and success in some of the world's most powerful companies. I rose above the ranks and went on to achieve all my goals, except, doing so, did not feel right. Something was still missing.
Compelled to end my suffering, I committed to my healing by incorporating multi disciplinary practices and tools to heal myself and find the answers I was seeking. I pressed forward past the adversity in my life to go onto live the life of my dreams. It is now my mission to awaken others to the knowledge and power within each one of us to live a meaningful life. Once we press forward we are able to align with our purpose and access the medicine within all of us.
