Hello My Friend,

I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and it is for a reason - not by accident - that our souls have now connected (digitally). I live to inspire others to create their best life. I am an entrepreneur, yoga & meditation instructor, life coach, motivational speaker, investor, and soon to be author. In 2008 after working in Silicon Valley I made the difficult decision to move back home to Toronto with the mission of launching Notable Life and the Notable Awards which has grown to become Canada's largest digital lifestyle brand for driven millennials.

Over the years as the business grew so did my longing for a deeper, more balanced lifestyle which inspired me to embark on a spiritual path routed in mindfulness and yoga. This path lead me to move to Israel for some time. While living in Tel Aviv I began practicing meditation and yoga with a guru from India and learning with some of the world's most enlightened thinkers. Some time after discovering a holistic, wellness-oriented lifestyle I decided to return to North America with the intention of sharing these learnings with all who sought to live a higher life.

This purpose and passion to heal and help lead me to sell Notable so that I could dedicate my life to 1-1 life coaching, creating personal development, yoga, and meditation courses, and writing my first book.

I truly believe that each one of us has a unique energy and gift to share with the universe and that through self-work and intention we can all unlock this magical gift. What's yours?

My unique story and philosophys have lead me to have the great honour of being a keynote speaker and creator of workshops, seminars, and classes for prestigious brands, companies and initiatives both in the US and Canada such as Wanderlust Festival, lululemon, Equinox, Deloitte, PepsiCo, Kit & Ace, Microsoft, Princess Margaret Hospital, Womens College Hospital, Schulich MBA, Rotman School of Business, University of Guelph, General Electric and more.

With love, light, respect, and gratitude,
