Today’s episode is truly special as it was the very first episode recorded in human form, live with my guest Steffen Hoffman in his home in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. And let me just start by saying he had just done Ayahuasca the night before and he shares that journey with us!
He’s a multi-disciplinary artist and visual storyteller. His passion is in conscious creation.
He has led design, creative, tech, and product launches for both startups and large corporations, including Rythmia, RLOVE, The Honest Company working alongside Jessica Alba, Salesforce, and AOL. He has founded both tech and product companies, including Openly Human, Klova, Metastory, and Hipster which was acquired by AOL.
I have never met someone who is this talented in so many different creative skills. And if for some reason you needed an extra reason to stay with us through the end, Steffen performs for us with a epic little handpan session aka he plays the UFO drum for us.
