I grew up enmeshed in beliefs that taught me that the only way to feel valuable inside myself was to seek something outside myself.

At 16, I started my first business. I was clueless on what I was doing and I wasn’t aware how much my childhood conditioning had limited me. Within just a few years, I came to meet burn-out for the first time, and unfortunately, not for the last.

Four years later, I had the courage to try again. I niched down my business, dialed in my marketing and started hustling, this time a little smarter. Everything took off faster than I imagined possible and within two years I went from a small town kid to an international photographer making a quarter million dollars a year.

I was newly married, had more money in the bank than I ever dreamt of having, I’d built a large following online and I was traveling to a different foreign country every few weeks.

From the outside, I looked like a rockstar, but in reality, I was stressed beyond belief, plagued by anxiety, felt like an imposter, compared myself constantly, overthought everything and believed that all this was me “thriving with chaos”. My life was falling apart, I was on the verge of divorce and I felt completely lost.

That’s when everything shattered.

I was in Bali for work and decided to attend a gong bath meditation for the first time. As I lay on the floor of a pavilion in the Indonesian jungle with a shaman playing nine gongs tuned to the vibrational frequency of the planets in our solar system, my heart was ripped open and I became hyper aware of how the core of my intentions in business were purely egoic.

I didn’t feel good enough inside so I hustled tirelessly outside to prove that I was.

What followed was a three year long dark night of the soul where the entire foundation of my psyche was rug pulled. “Groundedness” was a concept I couldn’t fathom. This was the season that made me hyper aware of my victimhood and how to start stepping out of it.

It was then that I started to discover what it means to no longer build a business based off of doing, but instead by being and breathing. How to craft a brand from my heart rather than my head and what it means to lead with who I am rather than what I do.

I’m here to save you the years and tears I endured and to help you discover the deep well of value and potential you hold uniquely within you so that you can create any life you desire to live, in any way you desire to live it.

Because that’s true fulfillment, expansive freedom and what leads to financial abundance.
