His background features experience from quite diverse avenues of life.

At its core, he believes authentic relating to be vital training of the emotional intelligence necessary to manage the nervous system in tense interpersonal conflict, as well as practicing context-setting agility to improve the chances of successful outcomes. As a Zen practitioner in the Soto lineage, he also values the practice of compassionate engagement and listening with everyone on his path as a primary driver for a life well-spent.
