I’m a speaker, writer, and personal development coach with a mission to promote the concept of everyday heroism, which urges people to take an active and positive approach to their daily lives.
I’m also an average human being who, for many years, was overwhelmed by limiting thoughts and beliefs. I kept myself stuck in a rut.
You’ve probably been in that rut with me, going around in circles. Like me, you’ve probably thought: “What does it all mean? What am I here for? What’s the meaning of life?”
Seeking answers, I studied a wide range of subjects, especially the humanities (especially literature, mythology, philosophy, and history) and the social sciences (especially sociology, psychology, and anthropology).
Over decades of research, I found many answers to my questions. But all too often, the wisdom I encountered was communicated in overly-complicated ways that seemed designed to only be understood by a select few.
I saw the wisdom in what I’d studied, but I believed is should be in an easier-to-digest form if it was going to help a wider range of people. Live The Hero is the embodiment of my efforts to make the knowledge I’ve compiled more easily accessible to as many people as possible. I believe the lessons embedded in the humanities and the social sciences are vitally important to leading a well-examined, dynamic, and happy life.
I designed Live The Hero to be a set of pragmatic guidelines, to help you and me take on life in an active, purposeful way. The program is based on the ancient wisdom of mythology as well as modern scientific discoveries about why we think and behave the way we do. It’s uncomplicated, straightforward, and practical, so it can be easily used in everyday life.
Perhaps most importantly, Live The Hero is for everyone: men and women, the young and the old, blue- and white-collar workers, conservative or liberal, the religious or spiritual or atheist. We are all united in our desire to feel like our lives have meaning.
It’s time we all remembered what our ancestors knew: that we must become our own heroes, and create the meaning of our lives for ourselves.

To My Fellow Men
Let’s face it, guys: most of us have been given flimsy advice to live by, which usually amounts to nothing deeper or profound than “suck it up, be tough, be a man.”
That’s not a structure for how to live a happy life. That’s just empty crap that’s been passed on for too long.
I’ve seen too many of my fellow men suffering for too long. Too many of us have been struggling with no meaning or purpose in life.
We’ve all been waiting for the answers to come to us, and that’s always been the problem. It’s time to stop waiting, and take action. It’s time to make our own answers to life’s biggest questions.
It’s great to be an average guy; we keep the world going, carrying it on our shoulders. But that doesn’t mean we need to have average thoughts.
Many of us have not been given the tools to live a deep and fulfilling life. We’re basically thrust out into the world, fed some “macho bullshit” and told to “be a man.”
So, I decided enough was enough. Finally, after years of struggle, study, and searching, I’ve created a life path that serves us, rather than enslaves us to shallow ideas about what it means to be a man. And I want to share that path with you.
Bottom line: I want you to be a part of the Live The Hero community. Together, we can redefine what it means to be a “real man.”
