My most important identifier is Melia’s Papa. My thirteen-year-old daughter Melia is my motivation and inspiration. Before she arrived, I was concerned about how I would relate to an infant. Up until then, I had enjoyed kids that were already talking, but babies always seemed to want to squirm back to their mothers.

When Melia was two weeks old, her mother laid her on my chest. I reveled in the most divine baby smell, feeling grateful to finally be able to relax with my newborn daughter. Over the course of minutes, Melia inched her way up my chest and nuzzled her head into my neck. It felt like I was being cuddled by the cutest, most loving puppy ever.
And then something magical happened. An electric pulse went through my entire body activating every cell of my being. I knew at that moment, this was the most important relationship in my life. Soon thereafter, it came to me – when Melia is a young adult, I need to be able to look her in the eyes and tell her I did everything could to make the world a better place.
This launched me on a decade-long quest to figure out how I would make the world a better place, which ultimately led to starting BALANCE Edutainment with Aaron. Our vision is to create global platforms for engaging children in the planetary awakening that is already underway. Our first global platform is Pacha’s Pajamas.
I am passionate about uplifting the voices of children, women, impoverished peoples, indigenous peoples, and nature to ensure that they play a key role in shaping a future that works for all. I think it is essential that we all look deep within to find our purpose and voice, and to develop our internal guidance system. I see the intersection of entertainment and education as an essential tool for reaching young people where they are at, and supporting their awakening to self-awareness and self-mastery so that they may create the world they want to live in.
