Hello, my name is Dirk and I'm a sober life coach, author, and recovering alcoholic. I grew up in California and went to college in Boston.

After graduation, I spent many years drinking and partying to alleviate loneliness, boredom, anger, and fear. My drinking got so bad that I nearly died on several occasions until I finally found the courage to ask for help. I've been sober for over thirteen years and my life is filled with numerous blessings, achievements, and love.


Before getting sober I was unemployed, lonely, sick, broke, and depressed. Since getting sober I have:


  • Regained my health

  • Gotten married

  • Launched two companies 

  • Purchased a home

  • Written six books

  • Become a certified recovery coach   

  • Become a certified life coach



That's just the beginning of what I've experienced and achieved in recovery. Sobriety has given me the opportunity to be reborn into a new life of hope, strength, and purpose.

As a Sober Life Coach, I am trained and certified to help you rediscover your purpose, create a vision for your life, and achieve your goals.

With my training, certification, and personal experience, I am eager to help you navigate your sober journey.

Me before: bloated, lonely, hungover.

Me after: healthy, married, sober.

Living my best life today, clean and sober.
