I do this work not from a sense that I 'have arrived', but that I know what it's like to navigate difficult terrain – to feel stuck or not fully activated, to be in transition, to sense a pull toward something new. And I know how inviting a coach into your process can be a powerful catalyst for change. 


From a young age I had dreamed of flying in the Air Force and was fortunate to have had the opportunity to do that, but an emerging sense of what I wanted to do with my life led me to chart a new path outside of the military. In that process I’ve learned a lot about the impact of mindset, the importance of unlearning aspects of conditioning, and taking thoughtful risks that are rooted in authenticity. My own work with psychedelics over the years has been an invaluable part of my journey, and I feel called to help others make the most of their experiences. You can read more about my story here.

Outside of this work I enjoy finding my place in the global sauna revival by providing whisking services at public bathhouses. I feel most alive cold plunging, trail running, rock climbing, writing, and playing on the coast with my wife and two kids.


Coaching creates a space to step outside of the day-to-day flow of your life so that you can step back in with more intention. This work enlivens a clearer sense of who you are, what you authentically want, and how to create it. Rather than being quick to offer advice, I use facilitation techniques and thoughtful questions that activate your ability to navigate your own terrain. The path is non-linear, to be sure, but working with me will introduce a system of accountability that translates insight into specific actions and continuous learning.

PSYCHEDELIC EXPERIENCES can be the most profound events in a person's life, yet integrating the insights into the realities of the day-to-day isn't easy. Preparation plays a critical role in shaping the experience, and thoughtful reflection afterwards can create lasting shifts in how you move through life. As a coach I bring time-honored tools and practices that will help you make the most of your psychedelic experiences - whether they have been challenging or uplifting.
