About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Working with outstanding clients and individuals all over the world to live better. We have epic conversations that instill dramatic life changes and lasting results.

I also enjoy experiencing a multitude of perspectives through travel, photographing masterfully, and passionately engaging the process of development for the greater good.

ABOUT ME

I guess I'd consider myself a Renaissance Man of sorts, practicing a handful of disciplines that all contribute to a really enjoyable life experience. I launched a coaching business last year, however portrait photography is also a passion and source of work (documentary, editorial, standard) and will go on nearly any adventure with a camera. My ongoing "project" for the moment is to broaden my awareness and deepen my consciousness; appreciating more, giving more, and promoting/facilitating the same in others. Photography and coaching are my primary means for connecting with people...anyone and everyone, and sharing/exploring different perspectives seems to me to be a great way to actively cultivate more respect and understanding worldwide.

PHILOSOPHY

In the essence of the Greek word, arete, I live to fully delve into the experience of the manifest world. I recognize the idea of living fully can be a very private or at least individual-specific endeavor, but for me it falls somewhere between a balanced life of optimal health, spiritual and social growth, cognitive stimulation, and passionate contribution to improving all lives.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Let me take your photograph! I'd love to meetup for an inpromptu portrait or two, and can email images or burn you a CD shortly thereafter. The people that make up couchsurfing reflect such a deep passion for travel and sincere goodwill, I find it only natural when authenticity emerges from my images of couchsurfers.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a coach - so if you're stuck, challenged, or best of all - *inspired* to live an exceptional life, reach out.! I'm seriously committed to helping in whatever way I can.

I'd also love to share photography tips/techniques or actually go out for some "hands on" location-shoots in your area.

If anyone is a rock climber, I'd love to learn some new skills and translate them into tree climbing and some rappelling.
