1. Tell us about yourself.
I was born and raised in a small town in the Hill Country outside of Austin, Texas. After finishing high school I decided to move to Dallas and work in the bar industry. Although I enjoyed the atmosphere I quickly learned that I didn´t want to work every weekend and holiday for the rest of my life. So, at the time I decided to tackle my fears of studying for 7 years to become a chiropractor.
My friends and I took a trip around Europe during my first break of chiropractic school in ´98. To say that trip changed the direction my life would be an understatement. We decided on that trip that we would move to Europe when we finished our studies. For the next 4 years we traveled to Europe on our school break. Of the 6 people on that trip 4 of us did.
One month after graduating I packed my bags and moved to Holland without any job or language skills necessary to work there. After surfing the couch of a dutch family for 3 months and intensive dutch classes I found work and my career as a chiropractor was off. 4 years later on my 30 birthday, I did the Camino de Santiago and got some clarity on where I wanted to go. My decision was clear that I wanted to live in Spain and have my own business.
I´ve been living and working in Spain for 8 years now. I also co-founded the only bi-lingual chiropractic school in the world, the Barcelona Chiropractic College. It´s a 5 year program and we are now in our 5th year with 140 total students from 16 different countries. I´m secretary of the Board of Governors for the BCC and was sat on the BoG of the Spanish Chiropractic Association for 6 years.
Outside my work and the school there is still plenty of time to play. I travel a lot, love motorcycles, cooking, and live music. I traveled around the world 1 time in 2002, cooked in the world championship chili cook-off in 2005, biked the Camino de Santiago in 15 days in 2004, and served in chiropractic missions in Peru and India amongst many other things. I guess you can say I love adventure and new challenges that expand my mind and spirit.
2. What made you interested in chiropractic?
My father checked and adjusted me at least once every two weeks my whole life. I started to notice when I was in high school that I was one of the very few that was never sick. What was the difference between me and the others? We ate the same food, went to the same school, and played the same sports. So, that means the same bacteria and virus that were getting everyone else sick should be affecting me too. I believe that the chiropractic lifestyle of eating healthy, exercising, proper sleep, healthy mind, and spinal health helped my body and immune system adapt better to its environment. I wanted to share that philosophy with the world.
3. How did you find your path? Was there a special event that led you to this path?
In 2002 my best friend died in my arms after a motorcycle accident. That experience has changed my perspective on life and how I want to live it. I started doing my soul searching and through a series of life experiences, coaching, and seminars I started to develop more clarity in how I wanted my life to unfold. My mission in life is to enjoy every moment like it was the last, live in abundance, and serve humanity. There are many paths to doing that and I have changed or added too several times since 2002. I think the constant change and growth keeps me stimulated and striving for new experiences and new ways to fulfill my life mission.
4. If there were one thing you could tell people to try to do that would help them on their journey, what would it be?
You have only one life in this physical body, are you living it in a way that inspires you? If not, you should look at your habits, thoughts, and your environment and consider changing them. Your habits, thoughts, and environment create your reality. It´s not easy but if it was then everyone would be living the life of their dreams.
5. Do you have a special affirmation or message that you would like to share with the readers?
If you want to make changes in your life I would start making a Vision Statement. It must be short, clear, empowering, and you can repeat at gunpoint. I would look into seminars, coaching, meditating, writing down goals, creating a vision board, and joining social groups in the areas you are interested in. Key is stepping out of your comfort zone as much as possible. The universe is listening and will present you with things you can never imagine but you have to be prepared when the time comes to make the step.
