Over the past 20 years, I’ve leveraged the studies of behavioral economics, cognitive science, consciousness, and culture to help brands understand their greatest value and how to captivate their audience. I’ve dedicated my life to cultivating a perspective rooted in love and reverence for our innate interconnectedness.
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 the Noetic podcast, a space for evocative conversations about culture, spirituality, and what it means to live fully alive. I am a founding contributor to the Human Space Program and a longtime advocate of the Overview Effect and space philosopher, Frank White.
I currently serve as the Strategist for some of the most influential commercial and nonprofit space ventures in the conscious space exploration and development movement. My primary focus is at Space for Humanity, a non-profit “cultivating a movement to expand access to space for all of humanity”.
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'm a solo father with four wonder-filled children. We live in San Diego, California, for now.

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.
