Buddha said, “If you light a lamp for someone else it will also brighten your path.”
My lifelong search for purpose has led me here. I want to disrupt the status quo by helping others to grow intentionally and live generously.
My Guiding Principles
Success and significance are different things. Significance is about serving others.
Believe in something greater than yourself. I follow Jesus.
Bring a positive mindset and OWN your life.
If you’re not getting better each day, you’re getting worse.
Compounding always wins over the long-term.

Entering the Army out of high school, I served in South Korea, Qatar, and Afghanistan. Inspired by mentoring troops, I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Education, teaching high school for five years.
Now, I train and inspire employees for a local government to be better in their jobs and increasingly fulfilled in their lives.
In the search for my own purpose and litmus testing, I’ve run more than 15 ultramarathons, finishing all but four. My proudest finish is the 314-mile Last Annual Vol-State.
I attempted a pilgrimage along the Appalachian Trail, but a knee injury sent me home after 706 miles. I dream daily of those remaining 1500 miles.
Newly married in Orlando, Florida, I’m enjoying newfound opportunities to serve others by sharing my knowledge and experiences.
