My Life So Far

My Life So Far


Rooted In Vermont

I like to say I fully embody my Vermont heritage, coming from a lineage of proud Vermonters that spans five generations. I was born and raised amidst the picturesque landscapes of Southern Vermont, which deeply ingrained in me the traditions and values that characterize the region. My upbringing instilled within me the virtues of hard work, resilience, and an authentic affection for the outdoors.


Let the Shenanigans Begin

Navigating my early years with undiagnosed dyslexia presented significant academic hurdles. However, I discovered solace in sports, which later gave way to a period of reliance on alcohol and drugs. Fortunately, a turning point arrived in my early twenties when I embraced sobriety and grace. Through dedicated commitment to clean eating, engaging in triathlons, and nurturing my spirituality, I not only survived but transformed into the person I am today.


A Chemistry of Love: From Organic Bonds to Everlasting Commitment

In the serendipitous year of 1992, the intricate dance of fate introduced me to not only a subject as complex as Organic Chemistry but also to my dearest confidant and eternal sweetheart.

A mere few months into our journey, I took a leap of faith and asked her to be mine forever. As I reflect with immense gratitude, our love story spans over three decades of shared joys, challenges, children, careers, and unwavering companionship. Marrying her was the best decision I ever made, and as the years have gracefully passed, our love has grown deeper and richer.


Favorite Role of All Time

In 1997, I embraced fatherhood for the first time—an experience that has brought immeasurable joy into my life. My family has become my deepest source of love and inspiration. The women in my life, who hold a special place, continuously drive me to strive for the highest version of myself as a man.


Emmy-Winning Recognition: Celebrating the Human Grace Project's Triumph with Denver 7 ABC

In 2022, a crowning achievement marked a pivotal moment in my career journey. I had the honor of being recognized and celebrated for my dedication and hard work as the producer and host of the esteemed "Human Grace Project" with ABC Denver. This endeavor was more than just a show; it was a passion-driven project that aimed to highlight the innate goodness that resides within humanity. The recognition came in the form of a regional Emmy Award, a testament to the tireless effort and creativity poured into every episode.


Catalyzing Change: An Inspiring Journey through Words

My public speaking odyssey began with an unexpected invitation to present a case for Grand Rounds during my time at Medical School. The memory is vivid – my nerves palpable, my heart racing. Yet, despite the anxiety, there was an underlying sense of exhilaration. The reception I received from my peers was transformative and would sow the seeds of an enduring passion.

My passion for purpose and public speaking has become a personal and professional evolution, shaping not just my ability to speak, but my capacity to connect, inspire, and ignite change. I stand here today, having traversed international borders and stood before diverse audiences, thousands of unique individuals in over 10 countries.
