"I’m inspired through wearing both the hat of a student along with the hat of an instructor. I love to teach and share my experiences and knowledge. But I get even more fired up when I’m learning and experiencing new things or even experiencing old things in a new way. Life offers us this platform—the platform to continuously evolve and learn and grow. I often begin workshops explaining a bit about my background and point out that I have a disabled son, who happens to be my greatest teacher. In fact all three of my sons are great teachers for me and I feel if we can hold onto that child-like wonder and awesome curiosity in life, we will soar and continue to expand into new possibilities with each breath."
