think you're too ordinary
to do something extraordinary?
and my story is living proof.
It all began when I started sharing one simple personal story.
My grandmother was dying, and I felt compelled to share the profound impact she'd had on my life when she took me around the world when I was a teenager. I also wanted to connect with people who feel as strongly as I do about the importance of travel in young people's lives.
To accomplish these two goals, I decided to launch a podcast. I had zero broadcasting experience, no social following, and not a single mentor to speak of.
I was just an ordinary suburban dad with a story to share.
A few short months later, I got a paid podcasting gig and received my first invitation to speak at an event.
My personal network now includes hundreds of influential individuals and successful entrepreneurs across a variety of industries.
And it all started with that one damn story. (Thanks again, Grandma!)
Make no mistake... I’m still a tiny fish in an enormous pond, but the growth I’ve experienced in just a few short years is both humbling and astounding.
Looking back on the ups and downs of my journey, I see a clear and repeatable blueprint that I'm thrilled to share with those who need it.
I can help you do exactly what I did—create the life YOU want by telling the story YOU want to tell.
let's not forget about travel
Traveling adds immeasurable positivity my life, and I’m working to provide everyone — especially young people — with the same inspiration and opportunity to explore the world that I had.
Thanks to the generosity of my grandmother, I traveled to four continents and a dozen countries before I was old enough to vote. Those early trips convinced me that travel is an essential part of life.
More than two decades later, I remain inspired by my grandmother’s generous gift of travel. I am committed to honoring her legacy by sharing that gift with my own kids—and by helping other parents to do the same.
I am the host of Family Travel Radio—a weekly podcast presented by The Family Travel Association. My mission for the podcast is simple: introduce families to the incredible destinations, amazing experiences, and life-changing adventures our world has to offer.
I live in Sacramento, California with my wife and two children (who are growing up too fast!)
