My fascination with the human body started early on in high school when I would modify my diet in order to change the way my body looked and put on muscle for during the off season. That spark brought me to where I am today. I am fascinated by how each individual can modify the way they train, eat, sleep, think and interact with their environment in order to shape the way they look and feel inside of their body. My belief is that your body should not only be able to perform any task you set out to accomplish in the most optimal way possible, it should look the way you want it to as well.
I draw from not only my education and experience but through my own training as well. After finishing my collegiate wrestling career I went straight into competing in bodybuilding. This experience has not only increased my knowledge of how your nutrition can affect you on an hourly basis but also allowed me to have a deeper understanding on how to adapt your metabolism to achieve the look you want. Being a collegiate athlete gave me the experience of working with NCAA athletes from early on in my education that let me apply my studies first hand and prepared me to work with untrained individuals to athletes developing to enter the professional leagues.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science: Physiology of Fitness and Health from San Francisco State University. I also hold a certification as a Sports Performance Coach from USA Weightlifting. In my spare time you will find me up in Tahoe either kayaking the lake in the summer or Snowboarding at Northstar in the winter.
