My Journey to Becoming a Professional Coach

Since 2018, I’ve been working as a Coaching Professional who specializes in supporting people to pursue their passions. I first learned about coaching while pursuing my own passion of personal development. 

I start every day with my Miracle Morning, which is a routine created by a man named Hal Elrod. My version of this routine includes silence, "visualmations", reading, writing, and exercise. Starting every day this way has given me structure, and has allowed me to find my path of Perpetual Progress. 

Being a Professional Coach has allowed me to help others create their own Miracle Morning and find their own path of Perpetual Progress while tapping into what makes them come alive! 

I tend to gravitate toward working with people who have a lot going for them but feel as though something is missing. They are pretty happy overall with a good job and a strong support group. Most have loving partners and beautiful, healthy families. Many have lives that most people would view from the outside as being ideal. But from the inside, there is a nagging voice that continues to ask, "Is this it? Why do I feel unfulfilled? How do I find more energy and motivation?" 

I gravitate toward that person because I am that person! I am married to a loving, supportive, amazing woman. We have two healthy, happy, empathetic children. I have a beautiful home in Santa Cruz, California. But that nagging voice in my head wouldn't go away until I found my Miracle Morning and created my path of Perpetual Progress

Perpetual Progress is a mindset shift that provides fulfillment through moving forward every day. The goal is to get a little bit better every day by making deposits into my Life Accounts. By focusing on the process of Perpetual Progress, instead of a specific product or outcome, I am better able to see and enjoy the gifts in every moment.

I'm a child of the 80's, growing up with Saturday morning cartoons, playing outside until mom called us in for dinner, listening to music on a battery-powered boom box, and riding a bike everywhere. 

Here are a few highlights from the first 40+ years:

  • Raised in Suisun City, California with two younger brothers by an amazingly supportive mom and dad. 

  • Still friends with my fourth-grade pals with whom I used to play sports, have sleep-overs, and trade baseball cards. Now we talk sports and trade fantasy baseball players!

  • Worked and traveled with the Arizona Diamondbacks as the "Video Guy" for four seasons, including the 2001 World Series Championship season. Yes, I'd be happy to show you my ring! 

  • Earned a Bachelor's Degree in Broadcasting from Arizona State University. 

  • Earned a Master's Degree in Sport Management from the University of San Francisco.

  • Directed the sports leagues for the cities of Scottsdale, AZ and then Santa Cruz, CA.

  • Married the love of my life in 2009. Became a proud dad to our son in 2010, and our daughter in 2013. 

  • Became an English teacher for a virtual high school in 2013.

  • Lost my own dad in 2013 to a brutally one-sided fight against lung cancer. 

  • Fell in love with the world of personal development in 2015, and discovered that becoming a Professional Life Coach would allow me to share what I've learned and experienced in the most impactful way.
