I'm an adventurer, writer, entrepreneur, father, husband, traveler, food lover and bon vivant. I live in the greatest city on Earth (Toronto, Canada) and love exploring worlds both far and near.

 

My Mission

One of my main goals in life (besides striving to be the best husband and dad I can be) is to use business to make positive change in the world. I do this through my adventure travel company Sacred Rides Mountain Bike Adventures, and through my courses, workshops and consulting for social entrepreneurs.

At Sacred Rides, we see adventure travel as a means for helping to open our customer's eyes to new places, new cultures, and new ways of being. Our mountain bike trips support community projects around the world, and through our 100% local policy we strive to keep maximum dollars in local community projects.

Through my work for social entrepreneurs, I deliver workshops and bootcamps, do one-on-one consulting, and mentor entrepreneurs who seek to change the world through business.

I'm blessed to have worked with hundreds of amazing entrepreneurs working on amazing businesses, and continue to learn about social enterprise every day. Subscribe to my blogs (here and here) and join me on the learning journey!


Once again, I’ve left with our meeting with such a shot in the arm - I was already happy, motivated and active on the direction and tips you gave me a couple of weeks ago, and this helps refine it (and remind me of some things I had forgotten) again.

Feeling blessed and most grateful! Thank you, thank you, thank you for your very generous time and considerable experience!!!
