MEET OUR TEAM MEMBER
Location: San Diego, United States and Mexico
Andrew Rivin grew up in the US, and is now based in California and Mexico. He has over 30 years of experience working in business development, adventure travel, and executive coaching.
Andrew holds an MBA from Yale University and a BA from the University of Texas, where he was selected out of 50,000 people to be awarded with the university’s highest honor, Student of the Year.
After initiating dozens of small businesses in Africa in his early 20s, Andrew founded a successful adventure travel company, described by the New York Times as ‘the most respected in the field’. For 25 years, he inspired hundreds of employees to embrace the vision of his organisation, whilst overseeing expeditions on almost every continent across the globe.
After becoming a student of Eastern philosophy and a practitioner of meditation and yoga in his early 30s, he began introducing the teachings of mindfulness, conscious communication, and self-empowerment into his work and now teaches workshops and retreats around the world.
His coaching style is light, fun, and seriously playful. He lovingly and empathically invites his clients to see alternative vantage points, to witness their self-limiting language and beliefs, and to step into their own truth of what it means to be fully alive. Andrew coaches fearlessly. He is direct, clear, and powerful in his feedback, and he welcomes occasional discomfort and conflict, knowing that this is growth’s edge.
Andrew is a perpetual student of life. He is a life-long competitive athlete who stays in top mental, emotional, and physical shape in order to keep up with his two grandchildren.
