"Everyone has a wound. Every wound has a gift.

The deeper the wound, the greater the gift."

My world was spiraling out of control...

I hit rock bottom the day I found myself at an intersection waiting for a bus. Rather than board, I intended to step in front of it and end all the stress and misery in my life. “Everybody will be better off,” I told myself. Only a faint glimmer of hope kept me on the curb that day.


Then I met Brad. Psychologist-turned life coach, his  patient mentoring guided me in unlocking one of life’s greatest paradoxical truths:

The Gift in the Wound.


My world changed forever.

Be Your Finest Self

Discover how to unlock your greatest gifts... 

....hidden in your deepest wounds.

"Nah, I'm Good. I'm just fine being mediocre."

I've never met anyone who sincerely believes this. No one. As human beings we all yearn for excellence.

"I'm Stuck. Hit a Wall. Never Good Enough. Stupid. Hopeless. Dreams Slipping Away..."

I've heard plenty of people say these things. Maybe you're one of them. I was. Stuck in the story with little hope of getting out.

Here's the great news: 

The key to UNSTUCKNESS is ironically locked INSIDE your own stuckness, pain and frustration. Crazy, but true. Right in front of you. 

It's so counter-intuitive, we rarely look for it and discover it.

5 Keys to Unlocking th eGift in the Wound will guide you in finding

Your own Keys

To unlock your own Gifts

To become your Finest Self.

It's a journey worth taking. 

Why not start now?

"Unlock your greatest gifts.

Become your finest self."


Professionally, I'm a business executive, author, mentor, speaker and entrepreneur. Personally, I'm a husband, dad, and friend who's all heart and a human being just trying to make my way through life like everyone else on the planet.


I'm passionate about showing up for my better purpose, keeping God in my path, discovering secrets and shortcuts to healing the stuck places that stop me, and making life a little better on my small patch of turf. 

I've been fortunate to learn from great coaches who uncovered inner wounds along the way. I believe  

you can unlock your personal greatness. It's never too late to move out of the dark places and be freed to live "all in" every day in the sunshine.
