My journey to this point has been a winding one.
From the nonstop frenzy of the digital agency world to the high-tech gold rush of Silicon Valley to the always-on-and-working world of entrepreneurship, I did everything I thought I was supposed to do. I tried to follow the "rules" in our society for how to create a life and career. In the process, I began to feel empty on the inside.
Without the tools to navigate my messy emotions, I began to numb, hide, and avoid discomfort at all costs. This led to struggles with addiction, eating disorders, and anxiety, which ultimately propelled me on the inner quest.
I began using my life as a living laboratory for uncovering who I am before the world told me who to be. From meeting with neuroscientists, psychologists, and healers to hosting self-discovery retreats around the world, I discovered that by turning toward my uncomfortable emotions and learning to dance with them, I could create a life that reflected my values and truth.
I suspect you’re reading this because there are aspects of yourself that you want to discover and express. My creative work — and this website — is devoted to coaxing that out of you. To showing you what's possible when a sense of wonder leads the way.
