Guest Biography: 


I’m a born and bred New Yorker, world traveler and Nature lover. I’m passionate about empowering people just like you to feel incredible and live a life you love!

Life is a grand adventure, especially when we live guided by our heart–I know this firsthand. The beautiful thing about life is that we can be ANYTHING we wish to be and create ANY life we desire. 

My journey in the healing arts began as a medical doctor. Degrees in Psychology, Nutrition, Chemistry and Medicine established my understanding of the human body and psyche, disease, health, life and death. 

By the time I was 25, I touched every continent except Antarctica. I worked with various healers, shamans and medicine people around the globe experiencing and learning about all kinds of healing modalities. Sometimes I found myself in pretty crazy situations, but the stories are well worth it! During this time my abilities as a natural born healer awakened. I discovered I trace back three generations to a lineage of healers from a native tribe in Colombia.

My time spent in foreign lands helped me understand that happiness means different things to different people. Ultimately it’s about discovering what happiness means to YOU and living authentically from this place. My work shows you how!

Based in Los Angeles I teach weekly classes and monthly workshops at Unplug Meditation in Santa Monica and at Ceremony Meditation in Venice. I also work one on one with people both in-person and online for coaching, mentoring and healing. My work is about healing AND optimizing the mind, body and spirit.

Many life experiences have prepared me for my work as a Transformational Life COach, Energy healer and Spiritual Guide, including:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, Nutrition and Chemistry from New York University with Honors, Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa
  • Medical Degree from New York University School of Medicine

  • 200 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Certification
  • Vipassana–10 days of Silence and Meditation–Twice
  • Three month Monk preparation
  • Pioneer on the FOX Television show Utopia–social experiment about creating a new society where they named me #DrLove
  • Speaker at Events and Conferences including New York Times Travel Show, Further Future, East Meets West Fest

  • Creator of The Initiation Program–a transformational online coaching program
  • Co-Founder/Designer of Ravela, a conscious lifestyle brand of organic cotton jumpsuits

My purpose is to help people like you optimize your mind, body and spirit so you feel GREAT and live the life you desire. 
I guide you in finding your happiness now and empower you to live a life you love because you deserve it!

Guitarist, bassist, vocalist and songwriter
Guest Biography: 


Ricardo Baptista was born into a musical family and has spent his life carrying on the family tradition in recording studios and on stages around the world. Born in Brazil to David and Beatriz Baptista, the biggest Gospel/Rock artists in Brazil throughout the 1960s and early-1970s, Ricardo and his brothers and sisters joined the family act and performed all over the country. By the time the family left to go to America, their farewell party had to be held at a stadium to accommodate all the fans and well-wishers.

In the United States, the Baptista family performed in churches all around the country, slowly expanding out from the expatriate Brazilian community and capturing a multi-cultural fan base. As Ricardo grew into adulthood he began to pursue others styles of music outside the gospel genre, primarily Country music and traditional Brazilian Bossa-Nova.

A talented guitarist, bassist, vocalist and songwriter, Ricardo has written and recorded numerous songs in multiple genres. His first original solo project, “Transformou”, was released in 2008 and showed his penchant for Brazilian rhythms and melodies. In 2013 he released a self-titled EP of original Country songs.

As a musician, Ricardo has performed with artists as diverse as gospel/blues artist Darrell Mansfield, jazz musician Tony Guerrero, rock guitarist Mick Taras, drummers Tom Dante and Evan Stone and many others. As a songwriter, Ricardo scored a major release with his song, “Thank You For Your Love” when it was recorded by The Heritage Singers for their “Tribute To Brazil” CD. Ricardo is currently writing and in the middle of producing his next solo EP, to be released soon.

Life Changes Show with Filippo Voltaggio
Show Host: 
Filippo Voltaggio

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
