My story is simple. I am a martial artist. Everything I do is an expression of my practice. By the age of 27 I had 3 near death experiences that have guided me to approach life with sincerity and passion. I have applied the core principles of my practice to being an entrepreneur, creative director, and artist. After a decade of running a creative consulting firm I transitioned into all that I do now.
My offerings (artwork, group workshops, talks, immersive retreats, sacred spaces, and private training) all focus on the the cultivation of integrity and well-being. Each offering is designed to help people understand who they are, what they have to offer, and their relationship with the larger things they are a part of. What makes my offerings unique is the use of physicalities to understand and embody concepts and ideals and show the roots, connecting points, applications, and relevance of many cultivation practices. Info and schedule of these offerings can be found on the home page and my social media pages.
My training consists of Baguazhang, Shorinjin Ryu Ninjutsu, Daito Ryu Aikijujitsu, Icho Ryu Aikijujitsu, Hirai Shiki Reiki, Mikkyo, and shamanism. I have been teaching these practices and their relevance to modern everyday living since 1998 and currently share them via weekly classes at my dojo, online private sessions, and annual visits to various international locations. Access to these offerings are by invitation or referral only.
My goal is to bring about peace. We each have a specific role within the larger system that we are all a part of and each role has a unique power. By cultivating ourselves to skillfully wield this power anything is possible. This is what drives me to further my cultivation and help others to do the same. I have been fortunate enough to share my offerings with a wide range of organizations (law enforcement, military, businesses, wellness centers, therapy clinics, and martial arts schools) and hope to continue to do so with all who can benefit.
Please contact me if I can be of service to you and/or your organization. Let’s cultivate together and build something meaningful!
