Who da Mango...
Hi... My name is Ryan (though most know me by my more playful, Mango, moniker) & I am a rather nontraditional Minister of the Presbyterian & Universalist Unitarian traditions; a licensed sailboat Captain; an aspiring writer, a imaginative wanderer, and a life/business coach with undergraduate degrees in world theology & creative writing, as well as dual masters degrees in Divinity & Business Communications.
I am unashamedly neuro-diverse & approach my autism/adhd as complementary character traits & tools to help me better engage with diverse populations --- not disorders or hurdles to overcome.
That said, I seek to empower YOU to accept & engage your truest self as we partner in an experience of mutual evolution.
I have lived with an Eating Disorder & Exercise addiction since childhood, despite a successful professional marathon career and elite status in the Ironman Triathlon Circuit. Now, upon retirement from endurance sports, my energy is more often spent surfing, sailing and yoga-ing -- and my personal journey has taken a turn toward self-acceptance apart from the Ego (the false notion that "I am what I do, what I accomplish, or what I own.")
I would love to work with you in any regard -- whether in the form of career/life coaching, Addiction/Eating Disorder recovery, corporate team building and/or Spiritual Discernment. I am a certified personal trainer, Yoga instructor, Clinical Interfaith Chaplain and Wellness Coach, and I would love to work with you in a wholistic way that addresses your mind, spirit and body -- as well enhances your social, personal and career life.
