Writer. Explorer. Poet. Coach.

Some know me as a trainer and coach for leaders and teams, others know me as a published writer, including two fantasy novels (with a third on the way!), and still others know me as an explorer, photographer, poet, compulsive scifi nerd, and an abuse survivor. However you found me, I’m glad you’re here.

I’m a native Texan, but live now in the Colorado Rockies. That’s a shot of me at the top of the page, capturing a beautiful moment on a mountain with my lens. I moved here in 2014, and couldn’t be more grateful for the life of adventure and beauty I get to live in these wild, mystical landscapes. I'm passionate about people living life to the full, and bringing their gift fully to the world—whether they're leaders, writers, artists, mystics, or some other kind of visionary. I believe everyone is created to be a change agent, uniquely designed by God for a specific and beautiful purpose. I don't think we are ever fully alive until we find that purpose and live it out.

I'm pursuing that purpose every single day. As a part of that, I've made it my mission to help other people discover theirs.

I do that primarily through my two great passions—writing, and coaching. Here's an overview of the projects and training I've pursued over the years in each of these arenas.
