Novelty. Founder. Indie Hacker. Artist. Cannabis. Crypto. Vanlife. Individual Sovereignty.

A sovereign individual doesn’t look outside of themselves for direction or answers. A sovereign individual steps into their whole embodied self. Sovereignty is radical.

A story about individual sovereignty

What does it mean to be a sovereign individual?

In some ways this question differs for everyone. In another way it doesn’t.

We are each encoded with a blueprint when we are born out of the world.

Yes, I said “born out of,” instead of “born into.”

You have a specific purpose in living and so do I. Stepping…

Welcome to a new day of Daniel’s building in public notepad.

Good Morning 🌻

Yesterday was a pretty challenging day on my nervous system. Why? It doesn’t matter. But it def made me slow down my building. I text my business partner and told him I wasn’t going to be able to connect…

“There is certainly a sense of exhilaration or relief at the moment of change — at the first few uses of telephone, radio, television, jet aircraft, miracle drug, or calculating…

Morning Energy Drop:

It’s 12:04PM and I am just piecing together my build log for today. I woke up and got some coffee, moved into my flow which consisted of some reading, meditating, smoking cannabis, and moving in the subtleties. My mom stopped by for a few which is really my favorite part…

I chose to face the unknown head on and in facing the unknown head-on, it helped sharpen my resourcefulness. It helped open my mind to new ways of being. It helped me fall apart and then find my true passions. Living in a van helped me wake up to my unique blueprint.

My first time working on the van. I fixed a leak in the fuel tank.

Individual Sovereignty. It was 2016 when I moved into a camper van. I was two years removed from college, I was burnt out from wrestling, and I was bitter toward the world I was living in. When I looked at Corporate America it made me sick. I didn’t know what…

Hi cuz! Welcome to the party. I look forward to witnessing your full activation and seeing you blossom into the light pattern of your blueprint.

Thank you for choosing to show up to the party raw and energetically naked. I believe it's a key ingredient in building the new, sovereign world we are co-creating.

You are a bright light and a powerful essence. Keep opening. You have permission to only accept the storylines playing through your mind that empower your highest self.

I'm sending you love and light. You are beautiful beyond words. Continue trusting in the steps you're taking. Be kind to yourself and know that each moment is an opportunity to explore or create a brand new world - the world that only you can see and are being called to bring forward through the life essence of your being.



To become a champion you have to know in your heart that everything is figureoutable.

If you desire to accomplish something in life it means you have to be willing to step into the unknown. It means you have to start. It means walking in a direction that is unpaved and likely misunderstood when expressed.

There is a fallacy, a projected blind-spot, in believing you…


I don’t smoke out of a pristine bowl every time I consume. I have a few pipes and a bong laying around so instead of cleaning one pipe every day I swap my glass in-and-out of rotation.

Hello, Consumption friend.

I hear you recently picked up a pipe at the local dispensary and you’ve been using it to smoke some marijuana you bought. What strains did you buy? When I worked at a delivery service for all those years we savored the opening of a freshly purchased…


One aspect of cannabis that I’ve learned to love is that there isn’t a standard feeling after consumption. Each strain brings with it a new experience. Each seed embeds an opportunity for your body to receive earth in its updated form.

Fueled By Marijuana

One of the biggest misconceptions about cannabis or marijuana consumption is that it makes you lazy and forgetful. This is a blanket statement lacking depth. Cannabis has made me feel spacey and stoned at times, but it isn’t the standard feeling. There is a lot of subtlety built into each…
