I’m still trying to figure out what this is all about.
A lot of my time is spent exploring the world through the things I find the most meaning in–Nature, Art, and relationships with people (especially females).
Most readers respond to my stories and insights about sex and seduction (plus they are a helluva lot of fun to write about) so this blog has always had a focus on those subjects.
One of the best summary’s of what I’m attempting to accomplish here was sent in by a recent reader of my first book Go Forth:
I want to say Thank You mate. Your book was nothing less than inspirational. The way you see life is refreshing and your view of women is beautiful. Its not soulless pickup bullshit but it encouraged me to go out and live life to the max and attract girls that way…keep up the inspiring work.

For a long time I was hampered by social anxiety and depression that was a result of a difficult upbringing, religious hangups, being an outsider, and constantly resisting authority.
I got over this in my late 20s through three major learning experiences:
Learning Game: I love women but never understood them and this led to much frustration sexually and mentally. When I learned what kind of behaviors and attitudes they were attracted to, it was like the lights were turned on in the dark basement I was living in. I crawled out and was able to enter a world of exciting sex and healthy relationships with girls I truly desired. Not only that, but I could embrace my masculinity and act exactly how I wanted without worrying about impressing them. This then allowed my seemingly endless sexual energy to be focused on bigger things in life. Read: Women are Delicious Side-Dishes in the Feast of Life.
A Healthy Relationship: After two years of studying game and dating countless girls, I met one of the most beautiful women I had ever encountered. A 22 year old model from Paris who grew up with a great family and had a strong mind. We lived together for almost two years and she inspired me to become a better man while I was the rock she clung to while navigating an uncertain future. Having such an intimate relationship with a high quality person also made me realize my own value.
Ayahuasca: I went for my first ceremony in early 2014 and was shown the deep workings of my personal Universe. One of the many ‘spirits’ I met revealed that I should not be afraid to write again–its what started this blog. Another vision showed me that a new chapter in my life was about to begin and I needed to start that journey alone–I ended my relationship after I returned home and begun a transformation. Read more about Ayahuasca here and here.
Those three major events led to understandings that freed my mind from traps of confusion and lack of self-awareness. Hence the Unleashed portion of the blog title.
In my life I’ve held many titles and jobs including: pizza maker, delivery boy, skate/snowboard instructor, pet photographer, Bible student, window washer, frog catcher, lab assistant, radio DJ, freelance writer, sculptor, artist, consultant, teacher, bartender, author, life coach, and professional asshole.
I have a M.A. from Columbia University and my undergrad study there included psychology, science, philosophy, and art–all of which I have taught in some form at college and high school levels.
Now, if I’m not traveling somewhere new, you can find me writing, coaching, and slinging drinks in Brooklyn, New York.

I hope to keep on living and exploring in order to come new understandings–these will be shared in a hope to inspire and entertain.
This is a celebration of the life.
