Hey, I’m Jerry! 


I was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1988 under a Sagittarius sun.  I grew up playing hockey in Central Ohio.  The game of hockey shaped me and made me who I am today.  

I graduated from Dublin Scioto HS in 2007, from The Ohio State University in 2011, and from Texas Tech University in 2014. 


From October 2016 to August 2019, I was a teacher and a coach in the Aspen School District.  I taught high school English, middle school PE, and I coached hockey and lacrosse.

In 2020, I put all my money into Bitcoin.  I began studying technical analysis of financial price charts and launching a Bitcoin-consulting company called Sound Money Financials, LLC.  

In 2021, I found myself on a yoga mat, performing yoga moves I didn't know I knew, experiencing a spontaneous kundalini awakening. Following the spiritual path, I began studying energy work as an intuitive empath and learning to access the Akashic Records.  My journey in higher consciousness took me, in 2022, to the pyramids in Egypt and the mountains of Capilla del Monte, where I joined thousands of spiritual seekers from all over the world to develop a deeper soul-level connection with myself, others, and the living breathing Earth.

In the last 3 years, I have travelled extensively, living in Aspen, Dallas, Phoenix, Topsail Beach, Redstone, Colorado, and Columbus, Ohio.  In July of '23, I returned to the Roaring Fork Valley, where I now live, love, write, and teach 7th Grade Language Arts.

As of July '24, I am in the process of publishing my first book, 'Memoirs of Awakening.' It should be available for purchase on Amazon and Barnes & Noble in August.
