My Mission and My Values
My desire is to help others recognise, realise and fulfil their own unique purpose. I understand that I'm here for more, that I’m a sovereign being and I know that you are too!

My VISION is simple
My true passion is to help as many people as possible discover their unique purpose and to show them the keys to a life of freedom and purpose where they can live life on their terms, I am really passionate about this.

I know that within you is greatness and when that greatness is realised you can live an empowered life, achieving what many consider to be the unachievable, I know this because I have experienced it first hand.

Helping people discover their purpose, it is one of the greatest feelings I have ever known.

My Life Wasn't Always Like This, Let’s Start At The Beginning:
My earliest memories are of having a sense that I was here for more, more than just going to school, getting a job, getting married, going on holidays, retiring and eventually dying. Like so many others I felt as though I never truly belonged, even with my family, I never felt that sense of belonging that I thought I was supposed to feel.

School was never a fit for me and I am so grateful to have be taken under the wings of some amazing entrepreneurs and mentors at such an early age. It was during my early twenties I saw the value of having mentors in my life, something I maintain in my life to this very day.

One of the driving forces in my life was my thirst for spiritual truth, this has made for a very interesting journey.

And The Plot Thickens:
After continuing in my sales career I created my first business which was very successful. During this time I also studied theology and became a pastor, so many people wanted me to follow the path into "Christian ministry" and so I tried to please them. This was so far from my purpose and the christian faith never truly resonated with me, but I did try. Even though I was in the "Christian" world I continued to learn about universal truth and other world religions.

I sold my successful businesses and left the world of christianity to continue exploring spirituality on a more raw and real level. I wanted to rediscover what had been my earliest memories. I immersed myself in life and I surrounded myself with mentors who could help me expand my thinking and my awareness.

During this chapter of my life I studied neuro marketing before entering into a very successful career in television marketing. This move made a lot of sense to me because I had built my businesses through clever marketing strategies.

After becoming disillusioned with the greed and control of the corporate media I left to create a lifestyle that would enable me to "walk the talk" and help as many people as possible.

I have invested so much into my own spiritual understanding, I have spent time with Holy Men in thousand year old temples, learning from their deep wisdom. I have worked with Shaman and Indigenous leaders and elders from around the world in order that I might teach from a greater place of understanding, remember that a teacher can only take you as far as they themselves have gone.

I am also fully initiated Shaman which gives me invaluable insight and perspective on life and the people I work with.

I bring all that I have learned from all of these teachers and experiences into practical and easy to understand programs and retreats to help people deal with issues from their past, to help them understand the power of the moment and to walk confidently on into their beautiful purpose.

In 2018 I wrote two books, Heart Marketing, a marketing book based on my ideas, philosophies and real experiences around marketing and the second book I released was called Thirsty, a spiritual book based on my understanding of life and the energetic universe we all share.

Both of these books became number one best sellers which I was really proud of as I remembered my high school principles parting words to me.

In life I have learned to follow my passion and purpose and now I teach others to do exactly the same.
