If you would like to discuss XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXX simply schedule a time for us to talk, you'll have my undivided attention.
I built the largest snowboard brand in Canada, started a foundation, produced radio, film, and television, and wrote a book on a better life in business. I surf, fly off mountains, and jump up and down with my guitar in front of people.
I do this by empowering kick-ass people.I work closely with accomplished leaders, entrepreneurs, athletes, and artists to define who they are today and what comes next. Together we write their next chapter and create the kind of impact they want to leave behind.
Early days: I started selling comic books at the age of 8 and opened my first skateboard shop at 15. I made friends with Tony Hawk and ended up in front of and behind the camera on Police Academy 4. At 19, I was manufacturing and selling skateboards internationally, and by the time I was 25, I had created the largest Canadian snowboard brand in the world.
My hot-shot years 25-35: I sold the snowboard company and lived like a millionaire. I got married, divorced, produced radio, film, and television, and set a freediving record for holding my breath for a really long time. I surfed epic waves in Fiji and Indonesia, went bankrupt, and traveled the globe as a World-Record judge.
Maturing? 35-50: Recorded three albums, got famous in Mexico, toured Europe with my Ska Band, started an advertising agency so I could have beer on tap in the office, and Wrote the book Creating a Better Life in Business. I moved to Costa Rica, became an advisor to Central American governments, got married again, and became a dad. I’m an optimist.
