Who is Hardy Brooklyn?

(How much time do you have?)

A passionate lifestyle enthusiast, Hardy Brooklyn’s primary fetish is sensation—and he sure does love to push people’s boundaries in safe and fun ways.

With a life mission of connecting people with who they truly are and want to be, Hardy coaches individuals—in life or in business—whether gay or straight, poly-amorous or monogamous, or still trying to figure it all out. The goal is to guide you to being confident in who you are, because Hardy knows firsthand that it’s the gateway to a greater life and greater relationships!

Okay—let’s drop the third person already!

Hello, hello, hello! I’m Hardy Brooklyn.

I’m a fun-loving serial entrepreneur who has successfully bootstrapped several of my own businesses while also making ample time for family, travel, live music, and nightlife. 

Whether it’s music, visual art, performances, inventions—or something we haven’t even heard of yet—I believe in the vital importance of human creativity.

In and out of the alternative lifestyle scene since my teens, I’m currently producing a live-event series in NYC (on hiatus until social distancing is a thing of the past). I’ve created and presented workshops on boundaries and consent in several major cities and continue to work with people on setting boundaries and how to communicate effectively if and when their boundaries are crossed. 

In addition to having what some would call “a well-developed sense of humor,” here’s a list of just a few of my experiences and certifications. I am or have been a/an:

  • Eagle Scout, tech expert, and FIFA-certified youth soccer referee;

  • life-long learner and trained in life coaching, Dale Carnegie, the Sandler Sales method, Landmark, wilderness first aid, and more;

  • active member of Toastmasters (since 2006) and currently am a “Competent Communicator”;

  • leader of workshops, trainings, and team-building activities for numerous organizations;

  • presenter of live workshops and webinars on boundaries and consent;

  • trained in improv with UCB East;

  • performer in live on-stage sketch comedy, burlesque, and the Moth storytelling competition; and appeared in several television series and independent films;

  • model for life drawing, body painting, and photography;

  • produce a live variety event series in New York City (when social distancing is not in effect); and

  • always searching for “What’s next?”—be it for me, my friends, my family, or my clients!
