About Me

Facebook profile pictureWelcome here!

When I got on this journey, I couldn’t focus due to intense ADHD, was constantly slipping in and out of apathy & depression, had little-to-no somatic or emotional awareness, and, as icing on the cake, my entire life was guided by a sense of shame and worthlessness.

After all these years of meditation, counseling and being a self-growth junkie, I’ve significantly improved my quality of life not by completely getting rid of those things, but by learning how to relate to them with great mindfulness and love.  I can honestly say that I’m happy.

In turn, I’m now a meditation teacher and mindfulness coach, and am passionate about helping others awaken to the fullness of life.

Professional Background

I’ve spent over two years on silent Vipassana meditation retreat, primarily as a Buddhist monk in Myanmar with my core teacher, Sayadaw U Tejaniya.  I’ve also lived at the Upaya Zen Center, studied Yoga across India, and have spent 5 years abroad spanning roughly 25 countries.

I also have a B.A. in Psychology, am a certified counselor through the Interchange Counseling Institute, and am currently enrolled in the Hakomi Institute’s two year comprehensive counseling training.  Here’s some links that tell more of the story:
