I vividly remember that one beautiful fall day, 15 years ago in Colorado when I had a vision for this website. At the time, I was still recovering from the devastating “aftershocks” of the Northridge Earthquake that had wiped me out four years earlier. With all my real estate assets destroyed by the quake, including our home in the posh area of Santa Monica, I took the family (wife and two sons) to live in Colorado. This was partly out of necessity and partly to remove my family from the trauma caused by losing our home in the most dramatic fashion. Looking back, the six years I lived in Colorado were some of the most memorable and empowering times of my life.

I said to myself, one day when I’m back in California, I will have Life Mentoring Programs for those who really want to know who they are, why they’re here, and what they can become. I didn’t know at the time how I was going to do it but I knew that I would figure it out. Many months of living in nature, meditating for hours, studying hundreds of books, and attending seminars and workshops prepared me for what I will be sharing with you in the pages of this unique learning platform.

With my teachings, you’ll have the best of both worlds: yin and yang, east and west, physical and metaphysical, scientific and mythological perspectives. My engineering background gives me the scientific viewpoint, while my meditative side gives me a spiritual and inspirational vantage point. Most of my training will be done via videos and articles but I will also be conducting regular workshops, Google Hangouts, private mentoring classes, and more.

I hope you like what you’ve seen of the site so far. Life Mentor will continue to grow and change, just as we grow and change in our own lives. I will update the site regularly with more insights, affirmations, and ways to improve your life and yourself. I look forward to taking this journey with each and every one of you.
