In the midst of a suicide, depression, and addiction epidemic, and widespread PTSD during a global pandemic, we don’t have the luxury of time to wait for the most healing substances on the planet to become available to the masses. We need swift action to change the course of history.

Zappy is on a mission to increase accessibility to psychedelic and plant-based compounds through education, research, clinical development, and commercial enterprises.

His work focuses on righting the wrongs of psychedelic prohibition, and guiding others on a path of inner problem-solving and healing.


Best known for his 2017 Van Gogh award-winning film, The Reality of Truth, Zappy has used his passion for film and storytelling as a platform and call to action for psychedelic advocacy worldwide.

The Reality of Truth

As Director of the acclaimed documentary, Zappy was given the Amsterdam Film Festival's Van Gogh Award for Documentary Directing.

The film, which has been seen by more than 15 million people, features Fast and Furious star Michelle Rodriguez along with thought leaders Deepak Chopra, Ram Dass, Marianne Williamson, Joel Osteen, Aubrey Marcus, and more discussing the relationship between spirituality, religion, meditation, and plant medicine.

The Reality of Truth continues to inspire millions of people worldwide.

Lamar Odom: Reborn

Zappy’s latest film follows the life-changing intervention he facilitated for basketball superstar/former Kardashian family member, Lamar Odom, using the breakthrough psychedelic treatments of ketamine and ibogaine.

This groundbreaking documentary follows Lamar Odom’s skyrocket climb to the pinnacle of fame and fortune, downward spiral into addiction and near-death, and inspiring comeback with Zappy’s guidance and the aid of psychedelic medicines.


Zappy is the founder of two 501c3 non-profit organizations; one dedicated to the advocacy and federal legalization of psychedelics in the United States, and one dedicated to providing free ketamine treatments to veterans.

The Mind Army

Zappy founded The Mind Army, a 501c3 non-profit organization, which is fighting for federal legalization of psychedelics in the U.S. via an Executive Order. The Mind Army believes it is every human being’s inalienable right to pursue happiness, and that includes using these highly effective medicines to treat the burgeoning S.A.D. epidemics: Suicide, Addiction, and Depression.

The Ketamine Fund

Zappy also co-founded the 501c3 non-profit The Ketamine Fund, which provides free ketamine treatments to veterans suffering from PTSD, or those who are having suicidal ideations. The organization’s mission is to dramatically lower suicide rates, especially among America’s heroic veteran population. Zappy is confident that ketamine – an FDA-approved anesthetic that is used off-label to treat mental health conditions – can quickly and safely break patterns of depression, anxiety, addiction, PTSD, and many other mental health issues.

As one of the foremost experts in psychedelics, Zappy is often relied upon as the most-trusted source of information about psychedelic medicine and emerging psychedelics companies. Zappy is currently part of three organizations with unique focuses in the psychedelic medicine space.


Zappy co-founded KetaMD in response to the current mental health crisis and the need for an at-home solution. Prescribed by medical professionals and guided by registered nurses via a secure telemedicine platform, KetaMD provides safe and effective at-home ketamine treatments for those who are suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other mental health challenges. Zappy and his team also lead corporate “ketatations” (ketamine-enhanced meditations), which create immediate group cohesiveness in a way that would otherwise take years to achieve.

Psycheceutical, Inc.

As Chief Visionary Officer, Zappy leads the vision behind Psycheceutical Inc., a new organization at the intersection of psychedelic compounds and pharmaceutical medicines. Psycheceutical, Inc. is using two patented, cutting-edge delivery technologies to provide safe and effective bioavailable psychedelic pharmaceutical medicines. Psycheceutical is removing barriers to care by employing two next-generation patented delivery technologies, via systemic and non-systemic routes of administration, to increase the safety and efficacy of psychedelic compounds.

Palm Beach Special Opportunities

In the investment newsletter Palm Beach Special Opportunities, Zappy and his co-editor Teeka Tiwari have two goals: be early and be right. That’s how you make life-changing gains from the market. Zappy and Teeka’s simple two-step formula to achieve those goals is: Find massive, trillion-dollar trends in their early stages, and develop networks of industry experts who can help position us in the right companies riding those trends. The first massive industry Special Ops is focusing on is in its early stages and solving the $3 trillion global mental health disorder epidemic: psychedelic medicine.
