By Helping Others To Help Themselves
Both of my Grandfathers were Southern Baptist Preachers. Moreover, they were missionaries to Japan – the loudest people on earth preaching to the most serene.
Today, I am not religious (or at least I am not spiritual)… but I have become a kind of evangelical in my own right. I’m passionate and driven towards making a positive impact on the world through those things in my life that have burrowed themselves deep, changed me forever, and moved me to spread the word to anyone who will listen.
Mine has been a journey through a number of worlds that rarely meet, let alone collide as they have through me.
I’m an artist by temperament, a mathematician by training, and a weightlifting coach by profession.

I run my own show doing what I love: helping people reach their potential. I do this through my work as a coach, entrepreneur, writer, and blogger.
I have taken seriously precepts long held in those enclaves of enlightenment – Zen, Taoism, the teachings of Jesus – that the best way to make a positive impact on the world is to first help yourself, change yourself, grow… Then go out and show others how to do the same.
This process never ends, it cycles through endless iterations, spiraling – growth begets new challenges that you will face and overcome. And at every stage, you can teach what you’ve learned… You should teach what you’ve learned. It’s the way all human progress has come into fruition: Human to human to human, stories told over camp fires, songs sung and danced to, movements mimicked, formulas handed down… It’s who we are.
If you’re ready, I’m here to help you find your passion, transform, rise like a phoenix from the ashes of your former self, and use that power to help others do the same.
The time for complacency is over. The era of self-centered hedonism is at an end. We are at a crossroads, my friend.
I want you to join me on a journey …
