hi, i'm deshoots.

About Me

My passion intersects between building things people care about and telling awesome stories about them. This has lead me to building companies, charities, projects, cultures and communities. I love the blank canvas and adventures that starting something new brings.

I have a natural curiosity about life,which often leads me to interesting situations most would not find themselves in. This also gives me some really good stories to tell. I believe that imagination and creativity are the two things we have in complete abundance and I use them as such. I encourage you to do the same.

I like to push boundaries on what I and others think can be done and I’ve [thankfully] come to realize just how short life is. For me, this isn’t something I find discomfort in, but rather it is my motivation to make the most of what I have.

I consider myself a designer – carefully planning the form, look and workings of a life I am passionate about living – and an author – writing the story of my life as I see fit, and sharing excerpts and glimpses along the way. I love adventures, surfing, long car rides, movement, yoga, health & fitness and anything that makes me feel alive.

While my goal may not be to live forever, it is to create things that will.

If you are inspired by me, I am grateful. But please, don’t try to be like me. Be yourself. And be very good at being yourself.

A word of advice:

Don’t sacrifice your life, especially your youth, for anything you don’t want, love, or at least in someway, moves your soul.

my focuses

aka. how I spend my time here.

health + wellness.

Exploring the bounds of health and wellness through a blend of ancient wisdom and modern science.

This includes everything from the ancient practices of breathe work and meditation to testing out modern discoveries such as glutathione IVs and RG3 nasal sprays.



From lego and tree forts to companies and workshops – I was born to create and I intend to spend my life building things that matter and putting value into the world.

Companies, workshops, retreats, charities, courses, programs – if it involves the intersection of creativity, strategy, systems, and execution, you’ll find me playing there.
