My personal challenges help me become a better human...

"No one rises to low expectations."

Les Brown

Embracing challenges through the approach of optimism, discipline, and humility has been my guiding light from a very young age. The inspiring lessons I’ve learned throughout my personal and professional life are the result of overcoming significant obstacles including nine blood transfusions, asthma, and dyslexia. My hope is to share my story as a guiding light for others as one of the most recognizable examples of how fearless optimism and steadfast determination will guide you toward success, even in the face of adversity, a topic I covered in a TEDx talk in 2020.

I currently live in San Diego with my wife and two younger children while my eldest daughter forges her own entrepreneurial path in Denver, CO. In my free time, I enjoy living life to its fullest. Whether it’s biking along the entire coast of California, wrestling a crocodile, bullfighting, running a marathon, or swimming with sharks, I’m always seeking new challenges to show those like me that it is more than possible to realize all of the dreams that we previously thought impossible.

"Things are only obstacles if you see them as obstacles. If you shift your perspective and see them as challenges, then they are something you can overcome."

1986 - 2021
