I am a Brand Architect and Philanthropist. For 20 years I have created strategies, brands, campaigns, events, and teachings that help us re-imagine philanthropy and transform perspectives. I coach and consult for individuals, brands, and governments across the globe and I’m on a lifelong quest to contribute to a more harmonious world.
I’ve consulted for organizations and movements such as American Indian Movement, Keep a Child Alive, Genocide Intervention Fund, ONE Campaign, International Justice Mission, Lawyers Without Borders, Save Darfur, Human Rights Watch, Freedom House, USAID, and the governments of the United States, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Kenya. In 2012 I co-authored the book Wisdom Meets Passion with NYT best selling author, Dan Miller.
I believe we are all extraordinary beings created to thrive through deep relationships, nature, spirituality, and creativity. My purpose is to contribute to a more harmonious world by inspiring others to embrace a perspective rooted in love and interconnectedness.
My travels include twelve years of exploring from coast to coast in the United States, a decade living and working full time in East Africa and almost two years soaking in the pure life of Costa Rica. I currently live just outside my hometown of Nashville, TN with my wife and three of our four children. Together, we are committed to inspiring the world to align with love.
Over the last year, I've been compiling a list of people, books, films and other teachings that have inspired and informed my perspective. I update it weekly. If you're interested in checking out this resource list on my podcast site, CLICK HERE.
I am, first and foremost, a philanthropist. My perspective is rooted in my reverence for our innate, cosmic interconnectedness. I've articulated my perspective on philanthropy HERE and included some of my podcast episodes on the subject.
My father, Dan Miller, is a best selling author on discovering a purposeful, meaningful career. He’s also one of my closest friends. I’m grateful for all he has taught me through the years, and specifically, the perspective he bestowed upon me.
While I was living with my family in Mombasa, Kenya, on the Indian Ocean coast, he asked me to collaborate on a book with him. Naturally, I was honored and excited. Wisdom Meets Passion is the result.
Today we face a unique dichotomy between the wisdom of the Baby Boomer generation and the passion of Generation Y. According to Wisdom Meets Passion, the question is not which is right, but rather how can the two work together?
Wisdom, meet passion. Passion, wisdom.
By bringing these two voices to the issue, this book takes readers through familiar plights, such as understanding the American Dream, the quest for security, and work that matters—regardless of age. Through candid storytelling, Dan Miller and Jared Angaza uncover various generational approaches to work, money, success, and relationships, proving that it is possible to be both passionate and wise.
