The Founder of Getting Beyond Barriers and GBB Inspirational Recovery, Victor knows what it takes to drive individual and organizational change. He is a true catalyst for igniting shifts that bring about personal and professional change, regardless of circumstances. Victor began his career in aerospace engineering for 7 years, working on projects such as the Space Shuttle Orbiter 102, Intelligence Satelite, F-11, and F-16 aircraft. It was during this time that he became addicted to drugs.
A sober addict today for almost four decades, he has developed a passion for eradicating any notion that our lives don't matter. Instead, he believes our thoughts and beliefs drive what we can and cannot achieve. After beginning the recovery process, he pursued a career in real estate finance, where he excelled through a newfound gift for speaking and teaching. Today, as a professional leader and speaker, he uses his past as a platform for assisting professionals from all walks of life to overcome challenges impacting their ability to thrive. One must not suffer from addiction to face daunting difficulties and life-altering distress.
His transparent approach and delivery give his audience a sense of what it is to be human. He masterfully invites them to look inwardly at themselves. There they find reasons to transform the areas of themselves that matter. A published inspirational author, Victor speaks with passion, power, and purpose. His goal is to assist his audience in connecting the dots that will lead them beyond where they are to what they saw as possible for their lives.
