About

Freedom

My mission is to help people experience more freedom. For me, freedom comes through entrepreneurship, authentic physicality and flow, intuitive decision making and maximizing creativity.

Most of us default to an analytical, left-brain approach to problem-solving. Not only does this not work often enough, it simply isn’t enough. If you’re not able to solve problems and move through life intuitively, you’re missing half of the tools in the toolbox. In fact, you’re missing at least half of what the world – and your own life – has to offer.

Athletics and Intuition

I’ve always spent a lot of time outside, and being physically active outdoors is the best way for me to get in Flow, train my intuition and put awesome in the bank. My primary sports are kitesurfing, open-water swimmingparagliding, and I also enjoy trail running, cycling, climbing, hiking and pretty much whatever else you throw at me. I’m proud to be a team rider for Boardriding MauiAlpinefoilSurfinSemFim and Kurtis Eyewear – thanks for the support!

In the last couple of years I’ve been focused increasingly on building my intuition – like any muscle, it gets stronger with exercise. It’s been a fascinating journey so far, and it continues every day. Flow and intuition are very closely related. My goal is to be in flow and in an intuitive state as much as possible.

Writing

I’ve always loved language and writing. I’m proficient to varying degrees in English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German, and I love the power of words, language-based art, creative writing, and well-crafted language of all sorts. I’m always interested in writing, translation and creative branding projects.

Entrepreneurship

I started my first business at the age of nine, and sold my most recent company in 2015. I’ve been a member of EO, the Entrepreneurs Organization since 2009 and served as president of the San Francisco chapter of EO in 2014-2015. I work with business owners and management teams on brand and product strategy, management, operations, growth, and selling the business / getting to a good exit.

Community building, conferences and events

I have produced hundreds of conferences and events over the past 20+ years, and I’m passionate about uniquely awesome conferences and events. It’s easy for conferences to suck, but they can be great, and I love helping make them that way. For more information on event production, please visit 8 Meter Media
