My expertise was born from my own severe mental health crisis while working in Corporate America. Through that experience I intensely sought answers on how to achieve good mental health, and beyond that, to understand how our thoughts affect outcome. The result was years of study and skill building, having become a master-level meditator, and gave me the opportunity to be mentored by some of the most influential people on our planet. The experiences I have had as a coach and speaker have afforded me the chance to collaborate with individuals confronting enormous problems to help them realize their potential and become the biggest, brightest human beings one could ever imagine. My mission is to put the tools of thought technology into the hands of those wishing to make a difference in this world and I am especially interested in working with organizations because of their reach and impact.
