Although formally “credentialed” as a Certified Orthopedic Technologist (OTC), Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Nationally Certified Therapeutic Massage and Bodyworker (NCTMB), Dance Instructor, Tour Guide, and Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP), Oren has actually always been in the “transportation and transformation” business – helping people get from where they are to where they desire, best “fit”, and/or can make the most difference. Oren‘s education, experience, intuition, insight, perception, and perspective often seem to enable him to consistently notice, communicate, and contribute what others cannot.
Oren is a veteran of both the United States Marine Corps and the United States Army; assigned to an Artillery unit (as a Unit Diary Clerk), Signals Intelligence (as a Linguist), and Special Forces (as a Medic). As a civilian, Oren has worked in orthopedic clinics and hospital emergency rooms (providing patient care); educational institutions and dance studios (teaching classes); factories, farms, and fields (as a machinist, fruit picker, and sheep herder); driving various vehicles (as a mover, adventure tour leader, and hot air balloon chase crew member); dealing craps, poker, and blackjack at local casino parties; mystery shopping and reviewing business for Yelp – while maintaining his own holistic (body-mind) health care practice and growing online business and social media presence. Oren’s favorite roles have been as a teacher, husband, and father. Favorite recreational activities have ranged from genealogical research, learning languages, creating acronames, and solving puzzles to exploring trails (and new ways to do things), SCUBA and skydiving, martial arts, and (partner) dancing.
Oren has been on the support staff of many business and personal development seminars (for some of the country’s most well-known and successful speakers and trainers) and many people have commented that his presence greatly enhanced their overall experience, understanding, ability to later implement ideas, and obtain results – encouraging Oren to offer himself as a Health, Business, and Relationship Coach, Consultant, Trainer, and Speaker (educating, entertaining, and enlightening others with “insider information” and his often uniquely insightful understanding and perspective on a wide variety of topics).
Oren advocates and encourages awareness, appreciation, and acknowledgment of innate inherent beauty, value, and significance – recognizing and redefining everything and everyone as a (valuable) “asset” and/or “resource” so that there are no “weeds”, no “waste”, no “wanting” and no need for wars based upon (fear of) “scarcity”.
Oren often writes about “appreciating your assets” and bringing out your best – using dance as a metaphor – emphasizing connections, interdependence, and creating opportunities for synergy (with potential for all to be better – together).
