VISIONARY & FOUNDER
"Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you. Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent." – Parker J Palmer
I am a skilled entrepreneur with a passion for people, and more specifically, helping unlock authenticity in the earth. I weave my experience as a father, athlete, entrepreneur, and pastor to evoke new ideas and perspectives. I inspire, build, and lead organizations designed to facilitate empowering, diverse cultures. Guided by the fundamental belief that we are all given a purpose in life, I inspire purpose across people, spaces, places, and time in a way that shifts the very constructs of latent and complacent systems.
Currently, I am the Visionary & Founder of New Rules Collective, a company that exists to unlock authenticity built upon lasting impact. We take top executive teams, start-ups, organizations, and universities through our customizable, four-tiered process to aid in building authentic culture, and distinguished leaders. Throughout my career, I have established numerous startups. In 2007, I founded Gamespeed Basketball, a high-level skill development company, which I sold in 2018. I also founded Equal Shot Inc., formerly known as Gamespeed Nation, whose mission is to launch resilient leaders and creative problem solvers through athletic development, leadership development, and skill acquisition. I am the founder and Pastor of Engage Church, a 10 year-old church, in the top 5% of growing churches in the nation which remains politically, economically, and racially diverse. Additionally, I operate as the character coach for the FSU Men’s Basketball Team.
As a Connector, I use my creativity fueled by my passion for people and the community that I serve, to connect people in meaningful ways that result in impact and resolve across the various businesses, within the diverse cultural landscape of my city (Tallahassee, FL) and abroad.
