Having a near-death experience at 18, battles with depression and anxiety, filing bankruptcy at 23, and rebuilding my life from the bottom up, I believe that it is vital to teach on how to rise from the ashes.

I met and married the love of my life in 2007 and together we have three children, not including our two cats. In 2011, I wrote my first book entitled Visual Impairment which is listed on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Recently, I wrote my second book Unpack: Life Lessons of an Unemployed Rock Star which is listed exclusively on Amazon.com.  I am a public speaker, vlogger, and blogger.
