Merrily merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream. So paint it your own each and every day. As a finance professional, I've come to realize that everything in life has a "value". Not necessarily money, but worth.....intrinsic worth. That goes for people as well.

In my short days on this planet, I've seen and done things that although I'll say spectaculor, may be average compared to some of you. From landing a cessna on a glacier in Alaska, to snorkelling with sharks and rays in the Islands, working in the West Indies for a few months, travelling parts of Europe and most of the US, I've grown fond of the diversity that this world has to offer. But at the heart of it, we are all the same, we are all human who make mistakes, try to learn, grow and develop our own concepts and understanding of exactly what it is we are doing on this rock.

I'm no different than you reading this, from my mistakes I've become the person I am today and for that, my lessons are priceless, a one of one. My voice is your voice, aimed to share the slice of life as I see it, with topics and articles that may or may not help you along the journey. As I grow, as I encounter things that have helped me along the way, I think leaving behind some breadcrumbs to maybe help someone out is time well spent.

A little about me, as I've said, by trade I'm in the finance industry and love to invest and manage money. Helping others reach their financial goals as well as enrich their personal "internal wealth" is my motivation. There's plenty enough for everyone. I read, I write, and involve myself in activities that harness my spiritual energy and passions. I practice what I preach, and don't treat my message as a game. If no one reads it, if I don't earn one penny, like I said, everything has value, so be it.

I've been knocked down to levels enough to watch the ants crawl bye and been to level's just below the clouds. Between it all, I've learned that the view from the top is only worthwhile if you have experienced the other side of the coin. Its at times of greatest struggle that you learn what you are made of. There is no guide or how to when it comes to living a healthy, productive and fulfilling life. My goal is to reach as many people as possible and use our combined energy of love and compassion to help, heal and thrive together.


Best of luck to you on your search, drop me a line if you have any questions or want to share anything.

A voice not spoken is like planting seeds without water. Hear me Roar!! . Enjoy.
