While his "day job" pays the bills and lets him do fun and interesting things with technology, it's the social enterprise endeavors that really excite him. All of his companies and programs are connected by a single thread - the intention of helping people really know themselves well and lead heart-centered lives that are aligned with their core values. The Intentional Living Collective, which as filed for nonprofit status, is an organization on a mission to provide resources and programs for learning, growth, inspiration, and hope to the Community, and to facilitate collaboration between Community members for deeper connections and greater impact.
