" I am passionate about working with individuals looking to find more meaning from their life. Whether business or personal, it’s all personal, and professional coaching offers a safe, trusted environment where people can ask tough questions, explore options and seek positive change. I strive to help a full spectrum of clients understand how to see life’s circumstances in the present and help them move beyond the obstacles holding them back.
I credit my very nurturing single mom for my higher sense of emotional awareness, an awareness that helped me immediately connect to my wife Jamie. After arranging a date through OK Cupid, we visited Atlanta’s Waikiki Barbecue for our first date. We sat on the patio and talked for hours. So long, the owner of the restaurant offered us another drink at closing, then told us to keep the glasses since the staff was going home for the night. Our conversation continued late into the night. We married a bit later and now have a four year old son named Alexander. My hobbies include gaming, martial arts, motorcycles, reading, Zen, and meditation. My family and I currently live in Brookhaven, Georgia."
