I have been lots of things and am lots of things. My core is slave to writing, healing, sharing, believing, doing, including, and dancing in joy. Know me through my words...as I learn me through my deeds. Welcome.
Born and raised in New Jersey, twenty-eight years traveling the world in the USAF, ten years in corporate America, several years running my own business, and ended up in Utah. Now I write, share, life coach, and do whatever feels right to be a self-sufficient global citizen.
