Our stories are the center of our lives…

…our perceptions, our reasons for everything we do, and every way we are.

I’ve told my story publicly now for 14 years. Yet, I’ve still been afraid to completely come out of hiding. Afraid some harm will come from me living my truth. No more. I now call myself to the game of being REAL. Authenticity is something I believe we navigate daily. Some days, I’m authentically shitty. Some days I’m authentically doing pretty awesome out-loud living. And some nights I can’t believe the day went by and I authentically did nothing substantial. That’s life.

That’s REAL. That’s ME. That’s YOU.

My passion is about navigating this REAL life and watching us all constantly evolve and that is success—that is evolution and transformation, and that daily navigation IS experiencing constant transitional spaces. Taking the leap. Not being perfect but being REAL.
