Although I've repelled out of a helicopter, been handcuffed to a barstool by the secret service, and conducted international military protocol missions in almost every country in the pacific rim, my true passion is helping you fulfill your highest potential.

As a 20-year naval officer, keynote speaker, and founder of Take Charge Life,™ I'm on a mission to inspire, encourage, and connect those with a burning desire to have the life they’ve always wanted through the psychology of entrepreneurship.
