About me

I've worn many hats on this journey called life, each one adding a unique experience, skill, knowledge and perspective to my personal collection.

Back in my early 20's, I decided to give teaching a shot. It was like having a front-row seat to all the incredible moments of learning, as I guided these young minds through the maze of knowledge. The classroom quickly became my stage, and every lesson was an opportunity to spark curiosity and ignite that flame of understanding.

But that wasn't all I dabbled in. I also took on the challenge of creating curriculum and leading sports teams. I had a superpower that I didn't know existed. I was able to develop something out of nothing and map out the way forward. Coaching cross country, basketball, and track & field wasn't just about tactics on the field, it was about building a tribe, fostering camaraderie, elevating my communication, and navigating the ups and downs as a team. Problem-solving wasn't just a skill, it was the playbook to victory, and ultimately, a playbook for life.

Then family life came along and added a whole new dimension to my leadership and problem-solving skills. Being a husband and a father made me realize that every challenge was an opportunity to weave love, patience, forgiveness, and understanding into the very fabric of our lives. It became more than just finding solutions, it was about building a solid foundation of purpose, discipline, listening, trial & error, and support.


As time went on, and as I matured in my gifts, skills, knowledge and leadership abilities, I found myself taking charge in various initiatives, projects, and teams. I was knee-deep in collaboration, thriving in brainstorming sessions and orchestrating the collective genius of a group towards a common goal. It wasn't just about delegating tasks as a leader, it was about creating a symphony of talents.

And let's not forget about my spiritual side. Embracing my faith as a follower of Jesus Christ, I took on the role of a spiritual leader, guiding others on their own faith journey. For me it's not about rituals and practices, but about having a relationship with the creator, the king, and the sacrificial lamb who desires a relationship with His creation.

Of course, I couldn't resist the call of entrepreneurship. I dove headfirst into the business world as an excited business owner of a design agency, navigating the stormy seas of market, brand, and employee dynamics. Problem-solving wasn't just about the bottom line, it was about steering the ship with vision and adaptability.


My career journey started in the digital realm as a graphic and web designer. Pixels, design tools, and front-end interfaces were my playground, and every project was a chance to bring masterpieces to life. Problem-solving wasn't just about making things look good, but it was about transforming creative ideas into tangible results.


Then came my fascination with research and mapping strategies. It was like being in a playground filled with information just waiting to be unraveled. The quest for understanding people and why they do what they do became an exhilarating adventure. Problem-solving and helping individuals and groups of people navigate challenges and outcomes became a critical key to unlocking the potential I had inside.


And when the spotlight turned to me as a speaker, I found a whole new way to motivate and inspire. Words became my paintbrush, creating pictures of possibility and empowerment. It wasn't just about talking, it was about forging a connection that sparked change because I had lived it personally and intimately.


And so, here I am today, a woven tapestry made up from the threads of teaching, coaching, leading, designing, guiding, problem-solving, creating, and inspiring. My journey has been shaped by the diverse roles I've embraced along the way, and I'm more than willing to share it all with you.
