We have two lives… the life we learn with and the life we live after that. Suffering is what brings us toward happiness.

– Bernard Malamud, The Natural


As a young man, I had dreams. Many of those dreams were compromised or lost. This blog is about how I have grown up into a man to come back and reclaim those dreams. Here at this blog are my stories as a man and a father aspiring toward physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and material health.

This blog here… it’s me not settling. It’s me saying, ‘I’m not screwing around.’ And frankly, it’s time. It’s time that I use my ability with language and leadership to help us both achieve more meaning, money and love in our life.

That means there will be no pretending here. That means painfully confessing my own coping mechanisms developed from a lifetime of protecting myself from feeling inadequate or getting hurt. You’ll like this blog if enough is enough! It’s absolutely time to grow into your gifts (without a moment to spare).

I’m a 40 year old single father of four. My life is rich with experiences, relationships, scenarios, struggles, triumphs, hope and heartbreak. I’m reflective of the many lives I’ve walked through. I am not who I was yesterday, and I am truer to being my best self today.

I offer you my strength, my courage, and perspective to proceed on your journey doing what I’ve only ever known to reconcile the heart’s feast of losses… that is writing down the small moments of life, adding thoughts and responses, then declaring them precious.

The remarkable communication of my experience will help you move forward into your next book of transformations.
