I have spent a life full of adventure, incredible experiences and mentorship by great leaders and role models. Additionally, my career choices have exposed me to deteriorating environments full of trauma, grief and wicked deeds.  From gunfights to mental chess with sociopaths and psychopaths, losses to suicide and many valuable lessons along the way, I’ve successfully navigated toxic environments, chaos and danger.  My articles, stories and efforts typically touch on the below themes.
