So a couple years ago I flew the corporate coop and began deep-diving the lives of interesting people. Heroes, not heros, artists, and outliers. The weird kids now adults doing things differently. Honestly I didn't know what the I was doing nor the hell I was facing. But I'm a therapist with an artist's heart. Apparently I knew just enough. So two years, three podcasts, and 8 advisers later, I realized I could finally start.
I've managed to get some great people to rally behind me. Artists, activists, superpowered weirdos and slayers just gobbling up life. Some have become advisers. They are truth tellers who fire my hope.
So big pic I hope to do more than just create good media. I want to scale a For Public Benefit Company here. I believe story is the best medicine, and perhaps the best way to support great causes world-wide.
On the personal side, I'm dad to gem of a kid with Down Syndrome named Gus. He's the only person I know who makes everything alright, without trying. I have a dream of helping widen the path for magical souls like him.
When I'm not producing, I'm a therapist. I like working with creative-types.
I'm also a vet. Some of my friends and advisers are too, the conscious kind.
