Despite his success and accomplishments, he felt lonely, stuck and frustrated and knew there was more to life than the superficial lifestyle. So he decided it was time for a change and began to do the self-work. 5 years later he has completely transformed his life and now sharing his journey with others to help inspire, educate and empower them to create what they truly want for their lives. In 2018 he launched a transformational travel company called The ALIVE Experience with organized trips that offer a holistic wellness program, self-development workshops, adventurous actives and deeply meaningful connections in places like Costa Rica, Whistler, Muskoka, Tofino and soon Bali.
