In 2012 I founded I.AM.LIFE, a non-profit organization that focuses on the production of projects and events with theme of interconnectivity.
While driving along one day, cruising to a stop sign, I suddenly had the spontaneous revelation that I was life. It was so simple, yet profound. In that moment I realized that at the core of most, if not all, of humanities challenges is a loss of connection - to each other, to life. And it changed the course of my life.
I.AM.LIFE, and just about everything I'm up to, focuses on the spirit, experience, and science of interconnectivity - producing projects and events that bring together modern and indigenous wisdom and knowledge to build community and inspire connection. Because life awesome!

With over 20 years of experience and study, I am a public advocate for the decriminalization and responsible use of all "plant medicines". Being in "right relationship" with plant medicines teaches us to be in right relationship with ourselves, each other, and the world.
Like many, I feel the revolution needed to overcome the challenges facing humanity is an accelerated evolution of human consciousness. This consciousness would be an interconnected eco-consciousness - a union of ancient and new understandings of the world and ourselves that reconnects us to "the garden" and cosmos in revelatory awe of who we are.
Responsible, intentional, ceremonial, psyco-spiritual use of plant medicine teachers and entheogens consistently offer this - healing us from historic, ancestral traumas, restoring our sense of connection, and, as my lifelong friend, Sunny Solwind, would say, "help cure us of stupidity".
