Founding story


In 2002, I sold my wholesale floral business to explore a dream I had to open a retreat center and to travel and meet new people. In 2004 I enrolled in a Health Coaching program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. While attending the live classes I met a gal from Florida. After a few dates I drafted up an invitation for a personal retreat under the tall pines of Connecticut. Shannon accepted and our relationship started to bloom. In 2005 we joined forces to operate Clearpoint as a retreat and holistic learning center, our first program was a sold out success! We’ve have the great fortune to host guests and visiting teachers from around the globe. In 2011 we were married under those same tall pines and shortly after welcomed our son Leo followed by our daughter Rinde in 2014. We operate Clearpoint as a family and community run business.
