Hi, I'm Austin.
My story began with an awakening.
I lived the majority of my life working hard to fulfill someone else's dream without the connection to what I truly wanted.
Through my own journey of self-actualization, I choose to generate meaningful impact, live purposefully, and create abundance everywhere. Being a coach is my pathway to creating the life that lights my soul on fire.
It is an honor to partner with people to co-create the life they seek by empowering the choice to step outside of limiting beliefs, patterns, and circumstances.
I am a coach. A gladiator of possibility.
When I played football growing up - I was always the human torpedo. I was the guy who you'd eye up and down and ask yourself, "this guy is gonna try and block me?!" I'd then proceed to run through your face at full speed, with the reckless abandon of a fighter pilot, and let out a gargantuan roar after making a play. I was the guy who was always hyping everyone up, leaping through the air to side bump a teammate for a good play and yell out a war cry to rally the troops. The game of football was the first place I learned to express my whole self in its passionate, exuberant, and enthusiastic manner. My gridiron experience cemented the grit, work ethic, and raw passion that oozes from my spirit. I learned that I have the magnetic ability to bring people together and believe in something they may not yet see in themselves.
After graduating from the University of Maryland and hanging up my cleats, I decided to enter the corporate world with one thought guiding all of my actions - how do I make as much money as possible?. That decision would guide the next eight years of my journey. I spent the first four years of my career working alongside fantastic people at exciting organizations but never felt the fulfillment, self-expression, or meaning as I did on the gridiron. After feelings of stagnation, I made the bold decision to change career, relocate away from my home in the DMV, and subsequently leave everything that I knew to build a life in technology sales. I found myself in an environment that allowed me to yield my authenticity while working with organizations to make a difference - I loved it. I hustled my way to becoming a global top sales achiever while positioning myself to reap the benefits of living and working in my dream location, New York City.
Life was good. I built a lifestyle that include everything that I thought I wanted: money, flexibility, recognition, and adventure. The only problem was that I felt empty. As I ascended in my sales career, the feeling of 'success' and making a distinct impact on other people revealed itself to be a mirage. The driver of my existence shifted from fostering authentic connections to driving pipeline and closing deals. I came to realize that I didn't know what I really wanted and had built a life on the foundation of flash and not fire. I was lost and didn't know how to find what I was looking for nor did I have any idea who could help me find the purpose I so desperately sought. This misalignment slowly manifested itself into anxiety, a feeling of lost identity, and a desperate search for answers - which is exactly what I did. After a year-long introspective journey and the support of my tribe, I declared a purpose that resonated with my spirit, to inspire, empower, and generate a belief that anything desired is possible while standing for people to become the most complete and expressed version of themselves.
Why Am I
Watching people live purposeful lives
lights my soul on fire.
Becoming a coach was the tool I chose to spearhead the delivery of my purpose. Now I work with people to ignite the belief that what they truly desire can be achieved. I partner with those who yearn for something more in their lives. Coaching is a gateway to the future - I don't care what’s happened to you in the past or what limiting stories may be in your space. I only care about sourcing what you need to take the next step in your journey.
I take great pride and reverence for working in the business of possibility. It is a privilege to be entrusted to support others in chasing their wildest dreams while offering my presence and partnership - just like my playing days.
I spend my days coaching people who have chosen something different for themselves outside of what's predictable, facilitating a diverse range of self-development trainings, all the while continuing my own march towards self-actualization.
I received my coach training from Accomplishment Coaching a world-renowned coaches training program. I am a certified life coach ACC (Associate Certified Coach) working towards the prestigious Master Certified Coach designation.
Did You Know?
When I'm not actively coaching, training, or binging into self-development - I'm enjoying life in New York City. I label myself as an adventurer who yearns for unique experiences, delicious foods to eat, and exciting places to travel. I actively seek opportunities to create memorable experiences with the people I love. I enjoy staying active through exercise, hiking, kite surfing, and competitive cornhole (I aspire to one day compete in the American Cornhole League). If you spend more than 10 minutes in my company you'll quickly realize I am a fanatic of the 17x World Champion Boston Celtics. I also co-host the Purpenthicity podcast which is focused on introspective dialogue grounded in purpose identification and embracing your superpowers to live on purpose.
