I’m here to kindle the fire within you and ignite you into action.
To inspire you to create a life that turns you on.
I imagine a world in which:
» we create at the intersection of our gifts and what the world needs.
» we fear less and love more.
» we approach work and challenges with a sense of play, inviting creativity, optimism and happiness.
» we meet people where there are, disregarding the desire for them to show up differently.
» we change from within, creating a better self to create a better world.
» we recognize that we are enough, worthy of love, joy and belonging.
» we approach success as “ours” versus “mine.”
» we step into fear and dance with the ambiguity of life.
What world do you imagine living in?
My story is your story. My journey is your journey. My leap is your leap.
In 2008, I set out to exchange security for adventure, comfort for growth, and possessions for experiences.
I set out to listen to the pull within me, to discover how my talents could be of service to this world.
This journey led me down a path of experimentation, breaking down to breaking through, and a whole lot of "holy shit, what did I get myself into?" followed closely by "this is the point of being alive."
A path I could never have imagined or predicted, it led me to collaborate with some of the most inspiring brands and people, like Apple, Seth Godin, Derek Sivers, Photojojo, Tumblr and The Unreasonable Institute.
It put my work on the front page of The New York Times and on ABC World News. It triggered Fast Company to ask me to write for them.
It led me to meet the love of my life, whom I’m now engaged to and feel like I was put on this earth to love.
It led me to discover that limitations are in our mind, success is how we define it, vulnerability is the key to living fully, and love is the most powerful force in the world.
It hasn’t been easy. Many mistakes have been made along the way. I’ve plunged headfirst into commitments that didn’t fully align with my values, ignored red flags, drained myself to breakdown, over-committed and over-promised.
But I’ve learned. Grown. Expanded.
I’m now on a mission to shake up and wake up as many people on the planet as possible.
This is an adventure. It’s only the beginning. Let’s come alive together.
