Where I’ve Been

In May 2008, at the age of 26, I left my corporate career in marketing and digital media so that I could shape a career out of what I wanted from business and life.

I did some soul searching (and still am), determined what I love to do, and began shaping a business and life to measure up to those dreams.

I've also travelled to many places in this beautiful world, and continue to.

Where I Am

Where I Am (2)

Today, Elastic Mind is not the same business as it was when I began this journey. It’s constantly evolving, and my blog, Rise of the Innerpreneur is an expression of all I’m learning about growing a business from the inside out.

Through simply expressing my beliefs about life, in my work, I've discovered it is possible to support the evolution of business values. That's powerful stuff.

Where I’m Going

I’m expanding into my vision, and expressing my soul for all to hear. Watch me grow!


I also plan to visit space one day.
