First and foremost, I love ideas. I’ve been moved by the beauty and grace of concepts ever since I was a kid. I believe that to learn is to expand one’s sense of self; to study is to broaden one’s horizons; and to ask questions is to open doors to new possibilities. To engage the world with a sense of wonder, curiosity, and reverence for the possible is, in my opinion, one of life’s greatest pleasures and privileges. I’m convinced that we’re all born into this world with an innate impulse to playfully learn and passionately test the so-called boundaries of imagination. As an educator, my hope is to inspire others to reawaken their natural love for learning. As a coach, my mission is to convince as many people as possible that they have the permission and power to be the predominant creative forces in their own lives. This website is just one of many spaces were I explore and express those convictions.
