"I am grateful, humbled, and honored at the opportunity to guide these sacred journeys. To be a witness of all the beautiful expressions is such a gift. My most important background includes being a father of 2 amazing beings and a calling to health and wellness both as a continual student and teacher. The path that led me here consisted of climbing a corporate ladder, branching out as an entrepreneur and inventor, becoming abundant and satisfied yet, still finding myself unfulfilled and questioning purpose.

I took a sabbatical from the business world and began pursuing my passion of yoga and expanding my consciousness. I entered the turnstiles of Yoga through Hatha and its physicality. I discovered moving meditation and was brought to tears in this practice.

Confused but hooked, I applied my new daily practice to my pursuit of physicality paired with an 2016 Ironman. I still continued to drive, seek and did not satisfy my thirst. I began a quest of deeper understanding, converting knowledge to wisdom in yoga, Ayurveda, astrology, breathwork, ceremony, entheogens, energy work and healing. I found surrender in this pursuit and the journey became the destination.

I am a certified Yoga Instructor, a certified Breathwork Teacher, and Advanced Theda-Healing Practitioner. I am also alert awareness, enthusiasm, gratefulness, intentionality, joy, love, play, presence, loving awareness, and in absolute bliss for the gift of this experience we call life. I am dedicated to a life of service to the Nameless of all that is and of all humans, healing and expansion of consciousness.

As we stand in the elements provided of earth in our body, the oceans in our blood, the wind in our lungs, and fire in our souls, I invite you to join me in this energetic dance of fusing the instrument of our existence with movement of the moment, postures of our ancestors, knitting both together in sacred breathwork and mantra, all while embracing the absolute power of surrender and stillness.
