I was born and raised in the inner city of Los Angeles, CA to teenage parents.  My parents divorced soon after my birth and I was raised by my mother and grandmother.  Throughout my life I have had to make the conscious decision to not allow my circumstances and my environment dictate the life I live. I graduated from high school at the age of 16 and went on to community college and then the University of California Los Angeles where I studied microbiology, immunology, and molecular genetics.  I won many awards and scholarships during this time in school and fully believed that I would continue my studies and become a clinical researcher.  Life, however, had different plans for me. Plans more aligned with my childhood desire to build wealth through being a great husband, father, and member of the community.  And so, I dropped out of graduate school and refocused my energy on self development and entrepreneurship. This shift in my life has established itself as one of the greatest decisions I have ever made.  It was the decision to trust my instincts above my intellect and to trust in a plan for my life that was greater than I could see at that time. I bring a level of intensity to every client meeting that recaptures this fork in the road moment in my own life (and the many others that have followed).  I am well acquainted with the internal and external battles that take place when we begin to question the decisions that have led us to a life that no longer suits our needs and desires and when we begin to awaken to a deepening understanding of self, clarity around the influential voices that, for good or worse,  impact all of our lives, and truly consider the potential for creating our own future. 

 

I enhance my clients’ lives through helping them connect to
their inner intelligence and strength.  A commitment to this
process not only improves my clients' lives - it radically
transforms their way of thinking! 

I do what I love, with the people I love, living and working in a place that I love, at the hours of my choosing, and I know that there is nothing more fulfilling in our lives than creating loving relationships with every touch point in our daily experience.   I seek to deeply listen to my clients with both my heart and soul and then co-develop a plan that transcends anything that my clients are able to do on their own.  I believe in the power of the creation of a mastermind between two people fully focused on the same desired outcome and count it an honor to have the great fortune of doing the work I am blessed to do with amazing people. 

I am convinced that everything available to us in this world is attainable by anyone with a plan and the mind and will to keep taking steps toward the attainment of their goals.  If you’re willing to do the work, I am more than willing to walk along side you until my purpose is fulfilled in your life and yours in mine. Over the last ten years I’ve worked with hundreds of men and women on a one-to-one basis and I’ve spoken to large audiences on a wide variety of personal development and business and academic topics.
