Human Spirit

What drives us to create? To innovate?

Do we have a chip on our shoulder the size of that which we want to put a dent in the Universe?

Maybe some of us are driven by a singular massive goal, like curing cancer or colonizing Mars. Or maybe you’re driven by the massive personal goal of freedom—freedom from debt, freedom from pain.

My guess is human spirit comes down to a combination of hope and curiosity.

Hope for a better tomorrow—for ourselves, for our kids, for humanity.

Hope for a meaningful and joyful life.

Hope for great friends, good health, and a memorable experience.

Curiosity for simple desiring to tinker and figure out how things work.

Curiosity for being playful and letting your life grow out of play.

Curiosity to turn over rocks, shake presents, and do the opposite of what everyone else is doing.

These are my kind of people.

STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,

Introducing Renaissance Ethos — A Path To Excellence, And Living Well

My mission in life

is to be a Renaissance Man

Mastery in multiple crafts (for me that’s music, design, coding, finances, entrepreneurship, fashion, wellness.. etc)

And pursing excellence in all that I do. (ha sounds easy right?)

My mission has led me to start the Renaissance Life, an extraordinary life of meaning and worthwhile.

The Renaissance Ethos,

is a focus on the spirit of a Renaissance Life.

It’s a series to help define and clarify what an extraordinary life is and what it takes to create it.


Excellence and Growth is the core of the Renaissance spirit.

However,  pursing an extraordinary life will not be easy (all great things aren’t),

we will be faced with many challenges and questions, such as

What is excellence? And how do we achieve excellence in all that we do?

How do we become our best selves — living towards our greatest potential, in the time we have been given?

But that’s okay, because we are in this together. We are a community.

We all have something we want to accomplish, or obstacles we must to face in our lives,

The Renaissance Life is about finding clarity, and meaning, so we can focus on what’s truly important — 


and impacting others.

Together we will start a movement — a new Renaissance — of change, and growth in our lives,  in the lives around us, and ultimately, the world.

Welcome to the Renaissance.
