My work life has kept me out-of-the-box and always in a creative state of mind
As an elite extreme sports competitor, TV producer, publisher, and creator, I’ve been an enthusiastic life-long traveler and citizen of the world creating adventures, entrepreneurial projects, ideas and reinventing new lifestyle designs for three decades.
I never planned this journey . . . but once on the path being open to life and change, it's never been a dull moment. What I learned is that it's all about the doing.
It's best described by Pink Floyd's song in Dark Side of the Moon; All you do and all you see is all you'll ever be.
Here are some of the projects, events, expeditions, start-ups and adventures . . .
