“We are only as strong as the Adversity that we overcome.”

Author of the book “The Gift of Adversity”, TEDxSpeaker, Keynote Speaker, High Performance Coach.

While preparing to deploy with the U.S. Army I suffered a severe spinal injury that left me paralyzed.

After dying on the operating table twice, the surgeons saved my life, but told me I’d never walk again.

Having no other option, I  started doing some brutally honest soul searching, looking for the lesson to be learned from my injury. Once I started seeing my Adversity as a gift instead of a curse, something miraculous began to happen...

I now speak, write, inspire and teach others to actualize their full potential to achieve their personal definition of success.
