The great Stoic philosopher Seneca wrote, "As long as you live, keep learning how to live."
That quote perfectly describes the theme of my life. I have succeeded in many endeavors yet I have also failed spectacularly. At times I could not believe my good fortune yet so many times luck has completely forsaken me, but through both the good times and the bad … I have learned invaluable lessons.
Whether immersed in history and literature lectures at Oxford or training government contractors and British military personnel in Afghanistan; each experience has enriched and expanded my own knowledge & understanding of the world.
From decades of pushing my limits physically and challenging the status quo of “social conformity”, I humbly offer to all of our clients my personal insight and the blended philosophy I have acquired.
