I got into fitness at age 14. My Dad had a set of weights in the backyard, and I was small and short so, i just knew weights make you bigger, lol. I played baseball, basketball, and lacrosse through high school. After high school I got into independent sports like surfing, jui-jitsu, and Spartan Races. Eventually, I ended up in the Marine Corps and became the lead platoon instructor for fitness. It was there I started to take others under my wing to get them in shape and perform better on their fitness exams.

I am currently getting ready for a show in june for physique modeling, and am advancing my knowledge of exercise through san diego state university. I look forward to helping you all and getting to know you.

Fitness has changed my life by making me more confident, humble, healthy, and has decreased my stress. I hope I can pass of the same benefits that I got to you!
