Greetings to all! I’m a Chicago native whose family relocated to Phoenix, AZ following the “Blizzard of ’79”. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Northern Arizona University in 1990. For the past 26 years I’ve held multiple managerial positions with a leading Fortune 500 company in the hospitality industry, most recently serving as Director of Safety and Security. This exciting career includes having lived in both San Francisco, CA and Tucson, AZ prior to returning home to Phoenix.
My personal values include family, freedom, health/wellness, spirituality, humility, trust, and levity. My wife Teresa and I married in 1999, and are thrilled to be raising an amazing teenage boy! Hobbies include strength training, yoga, music, and lots of “HSP down time”. For many years I’ve drawn great personal inspiration from the teachings of Dale Carnegie and Stephen Covey. Since being introduced to the HSP trait in 2014, I’ve been fascinated by the pioneering HSP research of Dr. Elaine Aron!
I am on a personal mission to bring forth the good news of the HSP trait, and self-identify very strongly as a Highly Sensitive Person, along with several family members (this is a genetic trait!). Upon devouring all the HSP written material available over the past two years, I chose to pursue Life Coaching certification to help others benefit from their HSP trait. As Dr. Aron describes, ‘Differential Susceptibility’ shows that we as HSP’s can thrive in the right environment, but also suffer in the wrong environment. I encourage you to learn more about the HSP trait!
