With over 22 years of experience in marketing and building brands, I teach people how to get clear, live a life in alignment with who they truly are, and grow a successful business. Four years ago, I quit my corporate job and stepped into my own marketing agency full time. My 6-figure income was fully replaced and I moved to a beach house in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California. I wrote one of the first Facebook Marketing books and became a published author with Penguin Random House. I spoke at national and international conferences around the world. I took control of my life.
Does this kind of lifestyle appeal to you? If you are the kind of person that wants to build your own business and you always do things your way… then I invite you to join me.
My core value in life is freedom.
I am passionate about creating and leaving my imprint in the world. The service that lights me up the most is teaching people. I love to speak on stages. I love to mentor people. I can show you how to build products and services and make a lot of money online. I’ve done it for years for others and myself.
I received a BA from the University of North Carolina in English, and an MBA from DePaul University in Entrepreneurship/Marketing. I was a Brand Manager at ConAgra Foods, CEO of a garage startup called Kintech Software, and an Internet Marketing Director at Healthcare Financial Management Association. I founded a marketing agency called Social Experts while I was in corporate. I built that business to over 6 figures and then quit the corporate grind, and moved to California. I now run an advising company where I personally mentor my clients.
My mission in life is to guide people to use their gifts to make a difference in this world. 2 years ago, I went through a giant spiritual awakening. I met many people (shaman, psychics, priestesses…)on a weekly basis that wanted to talk to me about god, angels, demons and the like. I started to share my experiences of what it was like leading christian retreats in my 30s, and the darker side of what it was like for me. I did a lot of internal work and came out of this period of my life in a beautiful spiritual practice that truly supports my soul.
A glimpse of my life now.
I am either coaching my clients or helping their companies by consulting them. Integrity is my cornerstone. I am straight with my clients, my family, and my children. I mentor people that are up to big things in the world – people that are making a difference in the world – it’s very gratifying. My rewards are time with my family, a deeply spiritual life, and money that allows me to live the lifestyle I desire. I bring my kids to school each morning, and I see them in the early afternoon. I take walks with my beautiful wife on the beach every week and we have date night every Wednesday. I live in the place I have always dreamed of – a beach town in California called Carmel-by-the-Sea — a total paradise. It’s absolutely amazing here. The temperature is 50s – 70s year round. I get to be outside every day. The ambience of the area is magic. It’s like an Italian village got relocated to the California coast. I get to wake up and go to sleep hearing the waves crashing. The sunsets are spectacular colors. We have dolphins, whales, seals and sea lions around us every week. The food and wine scene is amazing. People are laid back, quiet, and at peace here. There is amazing artwork, classic cars, and forest all around. There is a total comfort to living in a place that feels like I was always meant to be here. I highly recommend you find your paradise and seek it out.
I love to travel.
I’m blessed to have travelled around the world many times. I lived in Germany as a child in a military family. I’ve travelled to Vietnam many times to visit family. One of my most favorite destinations is Italy. Specifically, Cinque Terre. I love the magic of small European towns on the Sea. The places I have not been that I really want to visit are: Australia, New Zealand, Tokyo, Hawaii, Scotland, and Ireland.
I love to workout and compete.
I’ve always been into sports. I played baseball and basketball a lot growing up. I competed in tennis in high school and became #12 in all of European DoDD schools. Now, I am into Triathlon. I’ve done over a dozen of them. It’s a total rush and challenge to the mind and body.
I love fast vehicles.
I’m a huge fan of sports cars and motorcycles. I sold my Audi TT when I moved to California and I bought a BMW S1000R sports bike. It’s fast. There is a certain degree of risk in life when you ride a motorcycle. I get that. And I would not have it any other way. When I ride my bike, I feel alive. I get the full experience moving at 120mph through the wind. There is nothing like it.
