Deb & Doug grew up wanting to make a difference. They both graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point (est. 1802) in the first class with women, married others, have kids (all adults now), divorced, and generally followed life’s typical script. Instead of settling for less, life had something else in mind.


Once they finally met each other and and moved past their old mindsets, they fell in love over 18 years ago and began to reimagine their life. After Deb retired from the military, they went on a one-year, fifty-state 18k mile bicycling tour (see for details) to raise awareness of veteran and military issues. Following that, they imagined where they wanted to live—some place warm with a view of the ocean and mountains.


From their dream home in Hilo, Hawaii, now they imagine helping others build stronger relationships, magically achieve more, and love their lives, as they fulfill their dreams.
