"I am driven by a desire to be of service to humanity in transition.
My personal journey has led me to the point where I realized that my purpose lies in supporting the evolution of consciousness in society. This is not a spiritual statement, but one that represents a simple necessity. As individuals, we have to start taking ownership of our lives and our human potential in order to thrive. Four exciting decades have given me a lot of inspiration and knowledge to bring this project to life. I am committed to seeing it succeed and becoming an inspiration for similar initiatives around the world”
