+ lifestyle blogger

I didn't even know who I was anymore. I put on this mask that eventually became my identity for so long until one day I hit a wall where I couldn't breathe and knew right then who I was and it scared the living hell out of me. I knew I was about to tear this world and it's walls down and I did. In one big swoop I told my then wife that I was gay.

health & wellness

I have taken it upon myself over the last ten years, since I turned 30, to grow into my mind. Meaning that I have spent a decade with a daily practice of meditations trying to live mindfully.

a writer during his mid-life crisis

Naturally, I read a lot of plays. The ironic thing about reading plays, of course, is that they are not meant to be read. To me, the fundamental thing about a play is that a play is not something that is meant to exist on the page or in your mind, but it is something that must live in time and space.  In my opinion, the best plays are the ones that can only fully function when plugged into this equation : time + space.

injury & recovery

One of my porters “says oh sh*t!” and in midair I only hope to have enough rotation that I don't land head first upside down.  I end up landing back on the dry stage, missing the water, taking all the force to my face and chest. I slide unconscious into the water.

flexible nutrition

What works for me might not work for someone else. A sustainable diet has to be packed full of foods the person actually enjoys eating. I love eggplant. Other people love broccoli. This is often why meal plans don’t work: you’re eating what someone else told you to eat, not what you’ve explored and found that you enjoy.

+ self-producing

Making Surfer's Paradise was a unique challenge because I not only produced and starred in it, but I also spearheaded an enormous Kickstarter campaign to raise money for post-production... and we shot in Prague, Czech Republic.

recovery & sobriety

I started drinking in high school. I did occasionally get blacked out but not often. Then when I got to college the frequency and level of getting blacked out, not remembering, getting in trouble with the law and all that increased. My first realization as that this was problem was when I started to drink vodka early in the day, in the morning and by myself.

His Story

In my youth I felt in order to live better in my new reality, I had to move to another city. I needed to study and understand myself better. It helped to understand the reality about the gay life. I needed time to rebalance my life, make new friends, and become an adult.

yoga & mindfulness

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is around celebrating our individual selves, staying true to myself, relying on myself over others, and being empowered by my independence and self purpose. My advice to obtain this is to recognize and address our issues and seek peace of mind with softness in our hearts.
