From the sun-drenched sands of California’s Malibu Beach to a near-miraculous rebirth, “Mr. Malibu” is an autobiographical story of triumph over depression and alcoholism, on top of the inescapable weight of society’s judgment grid. The author, a son of the world famous Malibu Colony, grew up amidst celebrities and a wealthy peer group that instilled a deep yearning for “success.” But the adventure of being a child-in-paradise, steeped in an exciting culture of sun, sand and surfing, collapsed under crushing feelings of being “less than” most of his much wealthier friends. He experienced an epiphany that would change the course of his life and that of many others: Extreme wealth and fame were ethereal, hollow gods, and the entertainment industry’s “celebrity game” was a vacuous paradigm destined for obsolescence. Becoming arguably the world’s expert of best selling author Og Mandino’s affirmations by way of memorizing them and speaking them out loud every day for 11 years, he realized why they didn’t work. He then evolved his own positive affirmations that take it to another dimension. He ultimately created the popular “Mr. Malibu” personality, which now engages celebrities and popular figures in conversations that lead to positive changes across the globe.
