Elevate your life through inspiration, insight and wonder

About Me

I have always been an artist and creator.  That is what landed me in Brooklyn, New York, where there is so much art and innovation in one place.  I have also always been fascinated by what makes people tick, and by why some people seem "born happy" and others struggle all their lives and never seem to find peace.  Throughout my life and career I have looked for ways to combine the creative process with the path of personal transformation.  I have studied with great teachers in the creative fields and in cutting edge fields of psychology and philosophy, as well as the wisdom traditions.  I have learned from my own pursuit of happiness many life lessons around which I hope to create a conversation with all of you.  We're all in this together, so let's celebrate the wonders of this crazy existence and leave the world a better place than how we found it. 

Why You Should Join Me

In an internet landscape filled with noise (a lot of which is negative), I created this space as an oasis - a place to have your mind stimulated and inspired, a culture salon where we can explore what it means to be human and find broader perspectives and more wellbeing.  In a world in which so many images of gloom and doom are being perpetuated, it is ever more important to create visions of the world and the future that are full of beauty and hope.  

This community was created especially for creative people (on any career path), artists, writers, poets, seekers, personal growth junkies, transcendentalists, free thinkers and anyone who is interested in enjoying richer, more fulfilling lives and playing more in life (yes even at work!)  As a member of this community, you will have access to exclusive content and conversations you can't find anywhere else.  You will have the opportunity to connect with likeminded people near you and around the world who can offer inspiration and insight.  And you will be the first to be invited to join the courses and groups I am developing around specific challenges such as chronic stress and burnout, healing the relationship with your body, and manifesting in love and dating.  It is going to be quite a ride, and I hope you will join me for the adventure.
