What is holding you back from the life you want?

I’m Kira Swanson. I’m an escape architect.

I help people to break free of what limits them so that they can feel the thrill of being deeply aligned with their authenticity. 

Do you want to hit the escape button?


We can limit ourselves in so many ways. Fitting ourselves into boxes that confine us. Allowing our voices to be small and our opinions to go unheard. Trying to fit the corporate mold when it’s just not us. Suppressing that artistic voice that cries out to create. Shackling ourselves to soul-deadening work because it’s all that we know.

Well, I help people to shatter those self-defeating limitations, whether they are self-inflicted or imposed by cultural programming (you know that internalized set of rules about what you ought to be doing, how you should be making money).

Nobody can keep you from pursuing your dreams. Except you.


I can help.

I’ve felt the incredible lift off from charting my own course. I want that for you, too. I want you to create work that fills you with the satisfaction that you’re contributing on your terms. And you know what, it’s generally not found inside a cubicle.

This is for you if…

   your job is killing you.

   your contributions are minimized by bureaucracy and politics.

   the pressure to conform is squelching your creative spirit.

   you are tired of being forced to stay in your lane.

   you long to have the courage to do something different, to do what would make your heart sing.

   you are sick of playing by someone else’s rules.

I know how that feels.

I’ve walked that very path and now I help people just like you to escape and find that THING that makes your livelihood worthy of your life.

This much I know:

I believe in chaos: the possibility that out of disorder moments of untold beauty, elegance, and imagination will emerge.

I believe in being crazy enough to dance to the beat of your own drummer. Because the most important thing is not how you dance, but that you dance.

I believe in playing air guitar, catching fireflies, coloring outside the lines, breaking free of our limitations, taking a nap in the middle of the day, being in your wheelhouse, storm chasing, and that soul mates are real but your relationship with yourself is the most important one.

I believe in charting your own course. Because people are going to tell you what to do if you let them, but only you know what will light your internal passion.


 Too many people play like life is infinite, but it’s not.

Life is too short for settling.


You can wake up to the fact that YOU design your own life and you can plot your escape to a life that’s really worth living. It’s outside the box. It’s definitely outside your comfort zone. Maybe people will say you’re crazy for doing it.

That’s a good thing!
