Where did you grow up and what was your childhood like? Did you have any particular experiences/stories that shaped your adult life?
I grew up in Connecticut in a small town with good old fashion values. My childhood was amazing and being the son of an Italian mother I was privileged to eat some of the world’s best food. I had a normal childhood and loving parents that guided me when need be and disciplined me when need be. To older brothers and a younger sister made for a wholesome balance in my life at home. After high school, I decided to learn a trade which was autobody, and quickly learned that it was not for me. I then applied to engineer schools for Computer Engineering and successfully completed a program at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston.
My entire life has been a collection of experiences to groom me for what I AM today. All of those collective experiences allow for the creation of products and services that represent the past, present, and future. Past being ancient knowledge, present creating products based on cutting edge technology, metallurgy, and fabrication processes all wrapped up in a futuristic design.
This was all by design living the human experience.
What is something you wish you would’ve realized earlier in your life?
That being in service to others is the best gift you can possibly receive. Once you have experienced this level of consciousness you can never turn away from being in service. Had I realized this earlier in my life then perhaps I would be further along my path or perhaps not. I know that we are always right where we should be in life no matter what the circumstances.
What are bad recommendations you hear in your profession or area of expertise?
It’s kind of hard for me to answer this question because a lot of lightworkers are beautiful people with huge hearts that just want to help in any way they can to raise the vibration of mother earth. When I started this path I told the universe that I was not going to listen or follow anyone’s else ideas or experience but rather carve a path through solid rock to bring products and services to humanity, unlike anything they have seen or thought possible.
By keeping myself ignorant in my field has allowed myself to gain mastery in many areas thus the knowledge gained is unspoiled by outside influences and always pure.
Tell me about one of the darker periods you’ve experienced in life. How you came out of it and what you learned from it?
My divorce was the darkest period in my life. Words cannot explain what I was experiencing on all levels as it unfolded like watching a movie or having an out-of-body experience. The pain of watching my young children not understanding that daddy would not be there to say goodnight or wake them in the morning was crushing my emotions on all levels. I knew that it would get better over time, but that period was very frightening. All the knowledge on how to heal myself I knew absolute but could not find my center to allow the healing to begin.
Soon thereafter the realization of what was happening and was to play a part in my experience. Growing as a human I began to calm down and finally became centered. I know today beyond a doubt that we are spirit energy living the human experience and the divorce was just another part of my experience.
This experience has made me more compassionate toward others going through similar experiences and allows me to convey gratitude for having come out stronger on the other side.
What is one thing that you do that you feel has been the biggest contributor to your success so far?
Approaching everything with openness and child-like wonder and allowing the brilliance of the Universe to fill me up when needed. This is obviously a bit harder than it sounds because to achieve this level of openness you must go deep inside yourself and find your true self. Call it a personal journey to the ends of the consciousness grid where you find the innermost of who you are as an individual and human being.
This can be achieved in many ways like meditation or having an experience in your life that brings you to your knees and opens the beauty of everything that was, is, and will be again. Remember only in an experience do you truly learn what can never be described with human language. This is exactly the kind of spark that allows one to look at the world with the openness of child-like wonder.
A child sees the world as magic up until about 10 months and then conditioning starts and the magic is lost. When a person has an experience in life that shakes them to their core then the magic returns. For me, the wake-up experience brought the magic back.
What is your morning routine?
I’m an early bird and usually wake up at 5:00 AM. This is a habit from my professional career and has never gone away. To help maintain strict discipline I never use an alarm clock but use my biological body clock which personally I think is the best way to wake up. It allows you to transition from sleep to a waking state in a peaceful way.
Once I have started to wake up I usually have positive thoughts about anything. This will allow your environment to mimic what you are giving back to the Universe in a beautiful peaceful way, hence your day will be peaceful.
Then it’s coffee time… always start my day with a French press brew that is amazing. This allows me to wake up even faster. Next I usually just sit for 15 minutes and think about the pending day and what adventures it will be. Then I usually have a high-carb breakfast with some protein.
Around 7:00 AM I usually read emails and check messages that came in the night before at this time. At 8:30 I have a strict workout regimen that further helps to clear my mind for the day. After working out I take my morning shower and begin working with an alignment of body, mind, and spirit.
What habit or behavior that you have pursued for a few years has most improved your life?
I have practiced becoming acutely aware of my thoughts and actions and how they interact with the world around me. For example, if I have negative thoughts when I go to bed at night my dreams tend to be negative, so I make it a practice to have positive thoughts when going to bed and my sleep is much more restful. Same when waking up having positive thoughts helps set the day.
Losing words from your vocabulary that keep you stuck in a catch 22 scenario is also a practice of mine.
There is no end goal in any of this it’s just a new way of being and making your life much more joyful and mindful. This is an ongoing practice to dare myself to be better tomorrow than I AM today.
What are your strategies for being productive and using your time most efficiently?
Since I worked for an investment bank for 20 years you learn a strict disciple that can’t be taught in any schooling environment. This discipline for me consists of 3 basic rules that apply in my business today. Empathy, Gratitude, and Love. When you apply these three rules in your time management and productive cycles they become ingrained into the consciousness grind and spill out over your products and services.
For example, I choose long ago not to do any internet advertising because my ROI was never returned to me in the process of advertising. So I decided to focus on customer excellence and product R&D using Empathy, Gratitude, and Love. Over time this again proved itself invaluable and today my entire business model is done through word of mouth.
If a customer has an amazing experience with customer service and the product they are going to tell their friends and family and this, in turn, will come back to me in the form of positive karma.
Empathy, Gratitude, and Love are the secret to making a successful business.
What book(s) have influenced your life the most? Why?
To understand how some books influenced my life, understanding a little about my background is essential. In the early 2000’s I was about ½ way through a 20-year career working for one of the world’s largest investment banks. I was cold and calculating, everything was planned out and I had no love for anyone except my family. Asking me things like unconditional love, discernment, and humility where I had no idea. I was an empty shell of a man and the more successful I became the more empty on the inside I was becoming. One afternoon while working from home a moment passed and I started seeing energy in everything. This was my wake-up experience… it just happened at the speed of thought. There was no life-altering anything it just happened at the speed of thought.
Born from this wakeup experience was a new man ready to learn and be in service to others.
Life Teachings of the Great Master of the Far East by Baird T. Spalding was a collection of books about ordinary people with superhuman power to help benefit mankind. This was one of the best collections of books I ever read and taught me compassion.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is another amazing book that taught me humility.
The Elixir of Immortality by Robert E. Cox was another amazing book and taught me about universal love.
The books mentioned above taught me things early on that helped shape and bring clarity to my being. Armed with this knowledge I was ready to embark on a journey like no other.
