I give talks and lead workshops that offer fresh perspectives on the human condition, spiritual life, and the meaning of success.
A lifelong student and practitioner of yoga, meditation, and spiritual philosophies, I began a professional career in 1984 that included stints with Fortune 500 companies in the financial and technology sectors as well as an assortment of training, marketing, and sales consultancies.
I eased out of my business career in 2004, returned my full attention to the study and practice of yoga, and began teaching contemporary yoga classes in 2009. My book, In Search of the Highest Truth: Adventures in Yoga Philosophy, is a look at the modern world through the lens of ancient yoga wisdom.
