I dream, I do, I feel, I experiment. I create content, art and experiences that scratch beneath the surface and explore life’s big questions. Using my life as an experiment, and our world as a canvas, I delve into themes such as fear, vulnerability, creativity, purpose, self-expression, legacy and love. I create to provoke and illuminate. And most of all, I live for love. Join my latest adventures on instagram and the blog, and feel free to check out my latest project #the100daybook.
In 2008, I realized that I was living a life that didn’t align with who I am or what I really wanted. So, I quit my job at a tech start-up in San Francisco, sold my belongings, and booked a one-way ticket to New York City in 48 hours.
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."
It led me to collaborate with brands like Apple, Photojojo, Tumblr, Squarespace, The Unreasonable Institute and The Future Project, and as Chief Evangelist of Seth Godin’s Domino Project, launch six best-selling books in six months.
It gave me the clarity and courage to launch my own ideas, like late-night co-working group, New York Nightowls, accelerator for your life, Bold Academy, and mastermind for creatives and entrepreneurs, The Alive Tribe. These projects have spread globally in three months, catalyzed meaningful action in thousands of entrepreneurs and creatives, and appeared in The New York Times, ABC World News, Forbes, Fast Company, BBC, Inc., Tim Ferriss’s blog, The Next Web and The Huffington Post.
This journey led me to meet the love of my life, whom I’m now engaged to and was put on this earth to love.
It led me to discover that limitations are in our mind, success is how we define it, 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. And expanded.
This is an adventure. It’s only the beginning. Let’s come alive together.
