My Story

My Awake Warrior’s Journey to Self-Discovery and Mastery

Many successful women and men suppress emotions and trauma, leading to a buildup of destructive energy that manifests as anxiety, stress, and ultimately, burnout. This internal struggle is frequently compounded by feelings of shame, leaving many feeling alone and isolated in their experiences.

It can be a very lonely journey. If you’re like me, you’ve probably felt lost and alone, not knowing where to turn for help.

As a teenager, I loved hockey. My dad and I spent happy years traveling from arena to arena. Until New Year’s Day, 1988.

It was a bitterly cold day. We were on the way to an important  game, and my Dad and I were talking about the past Christmas, and discussing plans for the New Year when suddenly, he fell onto my lap.

I was 15. Our car was in a ditch, and my father was lying lifeless in my arms.

In the aftermath of my dad's funeral, I felt numb. While my mother mourned, I struggled to process my grief and trauma. I had no idea how to handle what I felt, so I turned to the one thing I knew: hockey. I poured my energy into the sport, eventually earning a scholarship.

 

Business World Success

By my mid-20s, I had dipped my toes in the corporate world, excelling in sales, and then successfully launched a multi-million dollar packaging machinery business. A decade later, from an outside perspective, it looked as if I was doing great.

But there was a problem. Although my business was doing great, I was not. I was doing crap, suffering with mental and physical exhaustion, anxiety, and insomnia.

Even though I loved my work, and was happily married to the love of my life, I was on the brink of burnout. I believed that making more money might fill the void, but it just intensified my stress and anxiety. Unrecognizable to myself, I realized the need for radical change.

To the Life We Choose to Define.

My journey of healing began at the Chopra Centre in California. This led me to India, where I studied with renowned holistic doctors, teachers, and healers. Over eight years, I explored various healing modalities, each bringing me closer to peace and understanding.

Gradually, the grip of grief and anxiety loosened. My life transformed profoundly: my relationship with my wife deepened, and I launched a successful eco-packaging business that grew to 7-figures.

I fell in love with life again, and now I help other woment and men do the same. At Awake Warrior, I blend ancient healing practices with 25 years of self-discovery and learning to deliver highly personalized, targeted coaching services for men who want to transform how they experience life.
