Other contributions include working with Ken Wilber as Co-Director of Integral Institute’s Art Center.
On the artistic front, Tripp has written, performed and produced albums with his own rock groups, Hank Madison and Screaming Witness. He’s also co-produced Stuart Davis and frequently humiliated himself on Stu’s Sex God Rock n Roll TV Show on HDNet.
Tripp is married to therapist/relationship coach Alyson Lanier and has the best daughter in the whole wide world. He lives near the ocean and spends much of his time surfing, playing music really loud, and laughing his ass off.
Influences and Teachers
Tripp has had the privilege of studying with many amazing people — many bald people, in fact — including Ken Wilber, Jun Po Denis Kelly & The Hollow Bones Order of Rinzai Zen, Genpo Roshi and Big Mind, David Deida, Vipassana (S.N. Goenka), Authentic World (Authentic Man Program), The Taoist Tai Chi Society just to name a few.
Tripp started a media production company 5 months after graduating from FSU. For 12 years he crafted thousands of TV commercials and programs while developing the skill to focus the message on what matters most. In 2006 he sold the company to create a location independent business focused on having fun while helping others.
The focus of Tripp’s life for many years was writing, performing, and producing music. One of his projects, Screaming Witness, is featured in this video with producer Alex Gibson. The theme music for The New Man Podcast is a song called “I Can’t Wait” written by Tripp and Alex. You can click here to find it on iTunes.
