I help men navigate middle age to achieve a better quality of life.
My unconventional professional journey began working as Harvey Weinstein’s Executive Assistant in my 20’s (and telling him to f*ck off 20 years before the #MeToo movement) to having my company Team Baby Entertainment acquired by Michael Eisner in my 30’s” - along with personal experiences -the loss of my father in my teens, the imprisonment of my brother, struggles with alcohol, body image, anxiety and self-confidence.
After a pivot in business and in life, I’m now in my mid-40’s, have regained my health to become a top executive athlete and transitioned from risk taker to risk manager becoming a multimillion dollar producer and partner with Insgroup; one of the largest independent insurance firms in the United States.
I have worked diligently to combine my personal passions with professional expertise and specialize in risk management for hospitality, CPG, health and fitness companies and luxury lifestyles and follow my personal motto “Insuring Success” in work and life.
My methodology regarding work and life is simple: Surround yourself with people and ideas you love, bringing passion, authenticity, humility and experience to everything you do.
With The Midlife Male Podcast, I conduct in-depth, raw and compelling interviews that reveal our humanity and inspire action.
Entrepreneurs and experts in the areas of food, fitness, finance, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, nutrition, entertainment, medicine, therapy, performance, sports, health and wellness join me to help men navigate middle age and live a better quality of life.
I’m fortunate to have been featured in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Adweek, the New York Post, The Wall Street Journal, ESPN, The Big Idea with Donnie Deutsch and Variety.
My commitment is to making memories with my family and living a healthy, happy and sustainable life.
