I am blissfully married to my wife Roxana and we have three small children together.
I found my way to Buddhism in the early 2000's and have been teaching to both beginner and senior students for over a decade. I founded multiple meditation groups over this time both for the public and for meditation teachers-in-training. I am an ordained member of the Order of Interbeing in the Zen tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, and author of the meditation book "Interdependent Liberation". I have trained in the Tibetan Vajrayana tradition with teacher, executive coach and accomplished translator Ken McLeod. I was formerly the Vice President of Engineering and author of meditation content at Muse, a mobile meditation app used by hundreds of thousands of meditators. I have a third degree blackbelt in Tae Kwon Do. My students benefit from my integrative teaching style which brings together fundamental technique with action in daily life.
