Meet in Person
I have focused the majority of my life to experiencing as many healthy opportunities as able. I enjoy helping others and consider it a heavy responsibility. I have over 15+ years in mentoring others in and out of the work place. I normally would not charge, but as I am fully booked on time and new to this type of process, I equated value to my time and posted. I have studied many of the world’s religions/philosophies and see benefit to how many provide hope to their members. That being said, I don’t consider myself of one faith. I have been in the sports, theatrical, retail, military and manufacturing industry to name a few.
