I am an Internationally Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor (CADC ll) with over 6000 supervised counseling hours working with young adults, families and their loved ones. I am an active member and certified through the California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professional (CCAPP) # A044430517
My great passion is to equip youth to make better personal peace choices and to bring peace to people who have been through negative experiences. I help people so that they can know themselves as complete, whole and peaceful individuals, lacking nothing. The Everything Peace project makes experiencing peace fun, loving and is exciting for everyone to enjoy.
I facilitated and managed marketing programs for treatment centers in Southern California, concurrent to my nonprofit and I am noted for my ability to embody kindness, compassion, and the grace of wisdom to help facilitate the change within the clients own strengths and ability to participate fully in their own lives.
Before devoting myself to Everything Peace, I was a U.S. amateur champion surfer turned pro surfer, co-founder of two iconic action sports sunglass companies and an international missionary working with displace youth on a trash dump in Manila, Philippines.
A little more about me; I am 52 years old. I live in Santa Barbara, California with my most cherished wife Alicia. We have 3 children, 2 dogs named Buster and Bentley, and our family mascot parrot named Zoopy. I mention all this because the Everything Peace Project is a 'family first’ movement and it is the core foundation for my source of peace.
