My Story and My Why

Currently living on the magical island of Ibiza, Spain, I’m a digital wizard when it comes to all aspects of running a successful online business from creating products and services to launching and marketing them while managing the entire process. 

While living in Canada, I worked in digital media and software space. During that time, I helped with producing visual effects for Hollywood studios, animated explainer videos for Silicon Valley startups, and algorithm-driven software products for the world’s largest YouTube content creators.  

Later, I entered the world of personal growth where I launched and marketed transformational online courses, coaching programs, retreats, and live events while building personality-based brands and communities.

After struggling with chronic PTSD for almost 15 years, I was lucky enough to participate in MAPS’ study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy. I was able to transform a suicidal breakdown into a spiritual breakthrough and a mighty mission was born to leverage my digital expertise for expanding our collective consciousness.

From product to marketing and everything in between!

Transforming a suicidal breakdown into a spiritual breakthrough!

TRAUMA > PTSD > MDMA THERAPY

2018 - 2019

MENTAL HEALTH SUFFERING AND PSYCHEDELIC HEALING

It all started at the age of 19 when I left my home country, family, friends and everything I’d owned and loved to take control of my destiny. I travelled the world from east to west, country by country and after two months I finally arrived in Canada as a refugee with $50 in my pocket and a few words of English in my head.

After struggling with chronic PTSD or Post-traumatic Stress Disorder for 15 years, I was lucky enough to be chosen as the only participant to receive MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD legally in Canada as part of a phase 2 research study conducted by the non-profit called Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies.

2020 - PRESENT

DIGITAL CONSULTING FOR PSYCHEDELIC PROFESSIONALS

After my powerful healing journey with psychedelics, a new mighty mission was born to leverage my digital expertise for alleviating human suffering and expanding our collective consciousness.

I help therapists and organisations specialising in mental health and psychedelic healing to amplify their mission so together we can make a bigger impact. 

So if you or your organisation work in the intersection of mental health and psychedelic medicine, then let’s get in touch and I’ll show you how I can help you achieve your goals while you stay in your zone of genius.
