My Story

The Origins

Raised in a traditional environment, I felt cut off from my community for much of my upbringing, taking the role of an ‘outsider’ in an otherwise conservative, normative culture. Never really feeling ‘at home’, I internalized much of this shame as feeling like something was wrong with me.
In other words, it was difficult to be me - truly me. So, instead of embracing all aspects of myself, I shut them off, instead living in anger and fear of my gifts and purpose.

The Challenge

In college, I began to utilize high doses of LSD and psilocybin mushrooms to facilitate insight, awareness, and emotional connection. Through these early experiences, I began to understand my own gifts, talents, and beauty. From this understanding, it became clear the issue was not me. Instead, it was the values and principles of our wider culture.
So, in rebellion to the way of normative culture, I pursued an unconventional path, immersing myself in certain reality tunnels to learn how to adapt to new circumstances. To learn what it meant to commit to self-care and mindfulness through adversity.

My early psychedelic use was instrumental in remaining present and grounded amidst the chaos.

It is to these medicines that I owe much of my healing. Without them, I am a fraction of who I've become..

The Transformation

In June 2015, I began microdosing as another way to cultivate presence and well-being.

For much of my life, I've struggled with erratic mood and long periods of melancholy. With the help of microdosing, I cultivated a consistent routine around self-reflection and awareness, leading to a greater drive to create and self-express in the world around me.
So, I started both The Third Wave and Synthesis as a way to support the integration of psychedelic substances into our cultural framework.
I pursue this work because I believe in the often understated benefits of psychedelic substances. When used in an appropriate context, they are one of the best tools we have available for understanding ourselves and living a live we deem meaningful and purpose-driven.

Work 1-on-1 with me to become bodhisattva, utilizing psychedelics to level up in mind, body, and spirit. I work with clients for a minimum of three months to help them through periods of transition and growth.


Cultivating a clear mindset is key to ensuring your psychedelic experience has impact and meaning.

Let’s work together to prepare your intentions and establish benchmarks of success for your transformation.


Once we have clarified your intention and set benchmarks, I will help you customize your own psychedelic protocol. 

Included is how to balance between microdoses and higher doses, including when to combine with other modalities.


More than 80% of efficacy from these medicines comes in integration. Once your experience is over, how do you embody this new way of being?

In this phase, we orient your newfound awareness towards leadership, creativity, and an improvement in overall well-being.

What transformation will you experience?

Deeper sense of alignment between your personal purpose and mission and the contribution you’re making to the world (aka your ‘work’)
Because of this improved alignment, you will be more motivated, have easier access to flow states, and a general increase in overall well-being
Once aligned, presence will be easy to cultivate in your leadership practice, giving you an enhanced ability to stay calm and regulated in the face of chaos and challenge. After we complete our coaching program, you will carry this knowledge with you, making it easy to carve out your own journey and path with plant medicine moving forward.

The Process

Psychedelic Protocol


First, we evaluate why you’re interested in psychedelics and if these are viable tools for your personal path. As part of this process, I will also assess your expectations for change, including an analysis of other work you’ve done so far to cultivate self-reflection and self-awareness.


If we agree that intentional psychedelic use is a valuable tool for your specific purpose, then you will complete questionnaires to determine your specific objectives in going through my coaching program.


Cultivating intention before working with psychedelics is critical to success. In this part, I will walk you through a process to get absolute clarity on what you want to achieve through your psychedelic protocol. Further, we will determine how to ‘calibrate’ your dose level to an appropriate amount for your specific purposes. Preparation will include logistical details like the amount to take, how often to take it, and how we determine success or failure for your microdosing protocol.

Psychedelic Protocol

We’re doing it! Once you begin to utilize psychedelics, we will work close together to ensure your overall experience goes well. This will include how to combine complementary practices with psychedelics, how to calibrate your dose appropriately, and how to track and measure whether your protocol is successful or not.


Clarifying intention and embracing the experience are critical components of your journey. However, 80% of the effectiveness comes from your work with integration. In other words, once you finish working with psychedelics, what comes next? How do you integrate the lessons learned during your experience so they ‘stick’ in the long-term? In this phase, we will orient your newfound insight and awareness towards leadership, productivity, and an improvement in overall well-being.
