True Participation Founder / Program Director
First, I was fascinated by story. Story is always the technology which helps us make sense of the world around us. Our brains are wired for story. I watched “The Matrix” and instantly felt the desire to tell my own stories, and so I became a filmmaker.
I have the mind and genes of an engineer. I loved reverse engineering stories to the point of seeing the deeper underlying functions that spark human desires and emotions. It turned out that story is comprised of many different building blocks. All for the purpose of freedom from restriction, and nurturing of ourselves and each other. I became interested in personal development and self-realization.
Applying my mind and interests, I began to work in technology. The world of software development is profoundly powerful, as it deeply represents the unlimited capacity of the software which powers our own bodies and allows us to make decisions and create change in the world.
My passion has culminated into facilitating leadership empowerment in everyone I meet. I have an intention to surround myself with and foster confident and powerful leaders using story, self-inquiry, and technology.
As long as I’ve searched for my path, I’ve been repeatedly told that “service is joy”. This was initially so difficult to believe, but when I had the opportunity to truly experience it I was sold. Being of value to others, and taking accountability for oneself is true freedom. I now do my very best to bring my greatest gifts to every situation. “With great power comes great responsibility!”.
