MISSION

In all that I do, my mission is to help people recognize their authentic value and feel equipped to leap.

MY STORY

Over the past 20 years, I've leveraged the studies of behavioral and cognitive science, consciousness, and culture to help influencers and brands understand their greatest value and develop a captivating brand identity.

I've consulted for organizations and movements such as American Indian MovementKeep a Child AliveGenocide Intervention FundONE CampaignInternational Justice MissionLawyers Without BordersSave DarfurHuman Rights WatchFreedom HouseUSAID, 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 the Noetic podcast, a space for evocative conversations about culture, spirituality, and what it means to live fully alive. In 2019 I was invited to contribute to the development and launch of the international Human Space Program, founded by space philosopher, Frank White.

I am a lifelong student of science, spirituality, and indigenous culture. 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 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.

EDUCATION & INSPIRATION

Over the last decade, I've been compiling a list of people, books, films and other teachings that have inspired and informed my perspective. I update it weekly. This is my master list of education and inspiration that has helped shape who I am today. 

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.

Order the book (Kindle, iTunes, etc.) here on Amazon.
