My Story

Growing up, I believed that my worth came from external validation. I was a very energetic and passionate kid who loved storytelling, so at 16, I started my first business telling stories with a camera. I was clueless and unaware of how limited I was by my childhood beliefs. Within a few years, I faced burnout for the first time and put my camera on the shelf.

Years later, I started a new business, smarter and more focused. It took off faster than I ever imagined, and I became an international photographer within 2 years, making a quarter of a million dollars. Although my friends and family saw wild success, behind the glamor and achievement, I was plagued with overwhelming stress, anxiety, and feelings of inadequacy.

One day, while attending a gong bath meditation in Bali, my heart was ripped open, and I realized that the core of my business was ego-driven. I deeply cared about serving people but my need to prove myself drove me once more back into the depths of burnout. This time it was followed by a 3 years long dark night of soul where my entire psyche was ripped apart as I started to unwind the conditioned beliefs knotted within me and step into who I truly am.

During this time, I became aware of my victimhood and learned how to start stepping out of it. I discovered the importance of building a business based on being and breathing, crafting a brand from my heart, and leading with who I am, rather than what I do.

Now, I’m here to share what I learned and help you discover the deep well of value and potential within you so that you can create any life you desire to live. True fulfillment, expansive freedom, and financial abundance await you.
