An inspiring talk on courage in combat, in vulnerability, in love, and in finding your purpose.

He served as a US Marine in Iraq and found himself doubting life itself afterwords. He decided to seek help and find his purpose. Later he followed love to Trondheim and had a hard time finding a job here, but he never gave up. Now he works as CMO for the local startup Dogu AS and is a happily married man. He is a great example of why vulnerability is the critical component to courage, and why love is the one thing worth fighting for.
