I’m not going to try to convince you I’m an expert in elaborate things.
As it is, I really only acknowledge being an expert in myself: self-experience, self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-appreciation, self-understanding, self-expression, and self-love.

There are many moments I could point to that greatly influenced my own understanding of who I am, and most of them happened outside of the classroom. 

One moment in particular that accelerated the journey to understanding myself was while laying next to someone on the night that they had been given by the doctor as an expiration date.

Prior to that, I had spent about three years working in a lab in order to add some special credentials to the list behind my own name. During that time I learned a lot of information, but mostly I learned how to convince people I knew things of which I really did not understanding.
Something inside shifted that night. The divine filled my heart in a way that I only remembered glimpsing before.
What her doctor told her was the best that could be offered by all of science and technology. Millions of scientists had spent billions of hours and billions of dollars studying. And when it came to a point where surgery was not an option and the drugs they were giving did more harm than good, the ultimate conclusion of all of that time, money, and brainpower is that she would expire.

Her heart, however, had a different ending to her story. Her heart had a different story written on it completely. And in the moment where her heart rejected the story that a socially accepted expert could offer and simply chose a better story, chose life over death, my heart was filled with its own experience; one that burst open the flood gates to an increasingly expanded awareness. That accelerated my conscious journey to understanding the source of who I am and uniting with the message of my heart. 

Throughout the journey I came to understand that everyone has a story written on their heart that may not reflect the story the rest of the world tells; what I refer to as the message of your heart. 
I support and encourage every being to unite with that message and tell the world the true story of their heart.
If our paths have previously crossed, you are aware that I often steer clear of leading of an interaction by discussing education, training, and credentials. If our paths have not yet crossed, the reason for that is because I believe they matter much less than the energy and emphasis people currently put on them would suggest.

We live in a culture that exalts the expert and the letters behind their name. One of the fundamental messages I share is that it does not matter what education you have, what jobs you have held, or what others do or do not think of you.

What matters is who you are. 
You are the expert on you. 

That being said, if our paths have crossed before you are also aware that I mention that because many people still are interested in letters and pieces of paper, the one place you can look to see what types of classrooms I have been in is on this website. That information is listed below. I maintain however, that the classroom of life is by far the most profound, and one where everyone can learn, grow, and be.
