Committed to Inspiring Change and Bettering Lives
I am a spirit in a human form on an adventurous journey – I didn’t always know that. I’ve been described as the guy who loves life and lives it to the fullest. I have experienced much - amazing highs, horrendous lows - more than most.
I am an artist, a writer, an award winning filmmaker, a musician, an entrepreneur having started nine companies, a radio DJ, an actor, activist, and a high school drop out. I am a speaker, a transformational teacher, and a vlogger. I am a mountain climber and mountaineering instructor, a licensed racing driver, scuba diver, skydiver, underwater archaeologist, a skipper, a pilot, and skilled in carpentry, electrical, plumbing, and masonry.
I have travelled, lived or worked in sixty+ countries, which opened my heart and mind in ways I could never fully express.
I practice Native American traditions and have participated in hundreds of Sweat Lodge Ceremonies, and have completed four Vision Quests. I meditate daily, walk a deeply personal spiritual path, have moments of enlightenment, hold all beings up as equal, and choose principles and actions that benefit everyone and all of nature. I live and accept life’s practical and mystical duality, and I trust my instincts and intuitions when reading and guiding myself and others. I have self-healed, which baffled an army of doctors, and I am an empath, which baffled me until I finally understood it.
I embrace everything that happens to me as my own doing, including being robbed in India, losing my business and home in Cape Town, falling from a five-story building, being arrested twenty times in my teens, taking on the US Air Force and winning, and surviving alcoholic parents, a dysfunctional family, and abuse, all growing up in Los Angeles. I have wronged others, and have made amends. I have forgiven when forgiveness was unexpected. I am a leader, and know when to follow. I live in the moment.
I’ve been a husband, a father, an uncle, a brother, a mentor, and a trusted friend. I have succeeded and failed spectacularly, loved and hated, laughed and cried, been arrogant and humbled. For all of these, and so much more, I am grateful.
There is no other option.
