About: “To get lost is to find the way" African Proverb

I am an adventurer at heart and I love to help others leverage their passions. Purpose can only be found in an adventure. An adventure can only be taken when you are willing take a step and be “lost" for a while. That is the beauty of Udemy and online learning! My mission is to help you get “lost" in your passions and then to give you actionable steps to truly find your way home.

My courses are designed to help you learn but also to entertain you along the way. No one really learns if they are zoning out. You need engagement just as much as information. My goal is to give you both and make sure my courses are compelling in every way imaginable.
