Life Philosophy

We must be the change we want to see in the world.

I am...

The Co-Founder of HighExistence, an ex-poker player turned meditation enthusiast, a voracious learner of philosophy and science, a loving boyfriend with an entrepreneurial mind and a friend who uses the practice of parrhesia at every lucid moment he finds himself in. In between, I love to trip with intention, discipline the bodily drives with long walks and yoga and cuddle with my cats (who, against common myth, show more affection and love than you can imagine.)

Please send me a message if you'd like to chat :)

Quotes

"To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to do." – Kahlil Gibran

“Wisdom tells me I’m nothing. Love tells me I’m everything. Between the two, my life flows.” – Nisargadatta Maharaj
