We all entered this existence as love, from love.
Our most profound contribution to a more loving and harmonious world
is to remember who we are, to be our authentic self.
Over the past 20 years, I've leveraged the studies of behavioral and cognitive science, consciousness, and culture to help people and brands understand the essence of who they are and how to captivate their audience.
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 bestselling author, Dan Miller. Since 2016, I've hosted Inipi Radio, a philosophy podcast discussing indigenous wisdom, humanity, and self-actualization.
I am a lifelong student of creativity, economics, science, strategy, philanthropy, consciousness, and indigenous cultures. 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 in San Diego, California with my wife and three of our four children.

Here is a two-part series I created on my podcast, Inipi Radio, that articulate my perspective on philanthropy, humanitarianism, altruism, missions, etc. If you are interested in a discussion on "Conscious Philanthropy", and what that could mean, I hope you'll check these out.

CURATED EDUCATION & INSPIRATION
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.
WISDOM MEETS PASSION
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.
