About Me

Building Connections


I signed up for the Army on 9/11 at 19 years old.  I quickly learned the vital components of team building and leadership skills needed to be successful in any environment.  In 2006 I was fortunate enough to lead men into battle in Sadr City, Iraq as a squad leader on my second trip overseas.  While our unit suffered 9 losses that year, we have lost nearly twice as many since our year long deployment to suicide.  I have found that helping my brothers transition from service, and finding purpose after, has led me to help others improve their life as well.  My mission is to create leaders by sharing a powerful message tailored for your group.  I want to help your team commit to each other and the mission, by showing each individual how important they are to the overall success.   

A Philosophy for the Future


You are not alone! Use your resources and resilience to dominate your field. You are the average of the people you surround yourself with.  So, make sure you are surrounding yourself with those who inspire you to be better.  If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together! 

Workshops and Keynotes


I have spoken to groups of 10 and at Golden 1 Center in front of 10,000 people.  What I can promise is that no matter who I am speaking to, or why, it will change your life!  I won't give you some speech that you will forget when you leave; I want it to impact your life every single day from that moment on.  You will never hear the same speech twice, so book now!

Embrace the Future

Whether you are a CEO, civilian trying to connect with veterans, a coach, or someone who just wants to improve their outlook on life, I have a message for you and your team! Tailored for you, on any platform, I can meet your needs!


The Real Connection

Success is found through knowledge.  Knowledge is gained through experience.  Experience is gained by failure.  I can relate to anyone because I have had many failures in my life, and I know that the only limitations are the ones we set for ourselves.  I have seen the human spirit overcome extreme adversity, and I know you can too! When you find your "why", I will show you the "how"!


Community Approach

I didn't go to war alone. I didn't get in gunfights alone.  I got in them with my team.  I shouldn't come back here and fight my battles alone.  I lean on my brothers to help me be successful, and they do the same for each other.  Let me teach your team how to lean on each other to improve as individuals and make the team bond unbreakable!
