What do you do best?
I wake people up so they can love themselves and heal their lives to access their purpose and live with passion.
I have also been known to inspire, educate and motive people to take action when they previously felt depressed, unmotivated or dispassionate about life.
What makes you the best?
I've put in far more then my 10,000 hours with passion, dedication and consistency, and have risen to the top of my field because I love what I do and feel connected to my life purpose through this work.
I have been through the darkest hours and lived to survive, so I can relate to people from all walks of life and guide them how to get back to the light to experience happiness, health and prosperity, regardless of their current circumstances.
For those who are already doing well, I show them their greatest potential and then teach them how to create a realistic road map to achieve their goals and dreams.
What are your aspirations?
I aspire to touch the lives of at least 1 billion people with this powerful message: Anyone can heal their life and live the life of their dreams. There is always hope. Everything is possible with the power of divine love, dedication and proper guidance.
Healing my spine from scoliosis
Most Challenging Moment?
I died for a moment when I got hit by a car while riding my bicycle at age 18.. I put that near the top, but have had numerous equally challenging moments that awakened me to a deeper level of connection with my own soul and the Source of creation. I believe all of our challenges offer us deep and meaningful messages to learn, grow, evolve and ascend to the next level of our being, if we are open to listen and hear the messages...
What you think about, you bring about.
Master your mind, master your life.

I'm a zen nature lover of simplicity, but I also love products, so this list is long haha... These days I am loving my inflatable paddle board from Starboard SUP, Aloha brand natural health supplements, Cell Food liquid oxygen drops, Kevita probiotic coconut water, Colore Science all natural waterproof sunblock powder, Redd Remedies InJoy mood enhancement supplement, I am loving the organic charcoal eye liner my friend brought me back from Morocco and can't seem to go a day without my Burt's Bees peony colored natural lip gloss chap stick or organic coconut oil which I use for absolutely everything. It's hard to imagine life without my Apple / mac products (Macbook pro, iPhone 6, iPad) since I have built my career around being mobile. I love my iJoy massage chair, I sit in it when I work while I'm at home most of the time. I always travel with my GoPro cameras to capture action video shots... I'm sure there are a ton of other products I can list, but I think you get the picture... :)
