I’ve held many titles in this life, but my primary roles at the moment are that of a husband, father, researcher, veteran, author, speaker, and a pretty all-round awesome guy (if-I-do-say-so-myself!). With an intent on designing a better world, I strive to blend innovation, social entrepreneurship and humanism to tackle some of the globe’s most daunting tribulations. I’ve also got a knack for identifying patterns where many perceive noise, which allows me to design solutions by fusing concepts from seemingly unrelated experiences like a 12 month deployment to Iraq, backpacking across India to attend Dalai Lama teachings, and interacting with random everyday people (like you!).  At the center of my onion, however, you’ll find a well-beaten path towards inner-peace and personal awakening. Should fate dictate that we cross paths, I would love to join you in meditation or soul searching conversations relating to the human experience. During my travels around the world, I’ve always loved meeting new people who share their beautiful perspectives on life. Naturally, I’m looking forward to learning from you as we share stories, challenges, and triumphs. Most people understand that life is short and can end at any moment, but few embody that truth and know it at their core. Regardless of where we are on the spectrum, we’re all trapped on this rock as it hurtles through infinite space. So, let’s make the most of our time together – shall we?
