At heart I am a storyteller and always have been. As a child, I remember getting my friends together and sharing stories of adventure, survival, loss and redemption.
Not that much has changed since those days.
Today my stories are cultivated from my experiences of a rich and full life. I was the fifth child of a police officer and a seamstress and had no idea that my dreams of adventure and success would result in such blessings, world travel and interaction with such diverse people and creatures in the wild. My stories touch on how a new consciousness and commitment to authenticity, intimacy and vulnerability have reshaped years of an outdated belief system of what it means to be a man in the 21st century.
I am available to speak on a number of topics. Here are a few:
Men, Intimacy and Vulnerability
I share intimately the techniques I learned that allowed me to harness the trauma I survived in childhood and as an adult to create a more conscious, happy, integrated life allowing fear to move through my body rather than keep me captive.
My story of learning (with baby steps) how to have an intimate relationship with a woman speaks of how ill equipped I was, and probably many men are, to risk opening my heart, and how a tiny commitment anyone can make, opened me to deeper intimacy and more love than I ever imagined.
Growing a Business of Heart
I can put on my business hat and share the story of building a business from the ground up into a multimillion dollar success in 8 years and most importantly doing it with a moral compass and commitment to building a business of heart.
I share my own journey of how my life changed from emptiness, addiction, adrenaline and fear, into a life of deep meaning and connection.
I use my life’s experiences and adventures to take audiences on journeys around the physical world but more importantly into their own inner worlds. Surviving not one but three near death experiences gives me a rather unique perspective on what life and death are all about and why we are here.
I share my stories and imagery of what it is like to dive the world’s oceans, interacting with and capturing amazing footage of wildlife up close. These adventures have instilled a love of nature in me, a connection to a deeper mystery under our oceans and a desire and advocacy for protecting our natural world in a time of increasing loss of creatures and habitat.
My message is to live a life of meaning, reaching for the stars in all areas of life ~ to risk more not less, to live a life of connection now ~ today ~ this moment . . . and most importantly to share life deeply with others.
These are merely a few of the points along the way, sharing how we all are in this world together, and how we can choose to Explore, Commit and Create a life of more love and happiness than we ever thought possible.
I am available for keynote speeches, corporate or business meetings, and motivational or inspirational group settings.
