What inspires you?

Knowledge, I love learning. It is part of my purpose in life to absorb, distill and share information that I find useful in my own life. My favorite inspirations for the moment: Joseph Campbell, Alan Watts, Victor Frankl, David Deida and John Wineland. I may have just realized that I am a legit nerd and I am totally 100% content with that.

Fun Fact?

I build gas plants, well sites and pump stations as a pipefitter. I am the only pipe fitting yoga teacher that I know!

Your yoga love story – when/how did you fall in love with yoga?

The first time I practiced yoga was in 2008 on the Nintendo Wii, it was on a plastic rectangle pad and was taught by a video game character, I don't know why I kept doing it then but I do know now. It has helped me be a better person, I use teaching and practicing as an opportunity to learn more about myself and other people and I love that!
