I'm obsessed with developing athletes, helping individuals restore health & vitality, and helping all types drive the biological effects of stress, trauma & addiction out of the body. Weird combo, huh? Allow me to explain.
My credentials and experience are below, but I want you to know who I am. For me, fitness began as a way to gain self-esteem after I stopped playing sports. What started as mesearch turned into research and I began helping others. I was pretty far down the mainstream health and fitness pipeline when a constellation of life issues and health issues bestowed me. I fancied myself an example of health, but at that time, I was a cautionary tale. Hormonal issues, neurological issues, brain fog, chronic inflammation, compounded by an inability to show up as myself day-to-day. This shouldn't be the case for someone so young, but it was my reality.
If people change out of inspiration or desperation, I was the latter. This forced me to abandon a lot of the low rent science that the mainstream health and fitness communities hock in search of real truths. I was turned on to more preventative health measures, biohacking, functional medicine, ancestral eating, and using the entire toolkit of sciences at my disposal (real biohacking). I also began a more proactive approach to self-development.
This lead to an evolution in who I was while I simultaneously resurrected my body into a high performing machine.
This continues to shape how I help others by taking a perspective on developing athletes & individuals from a panoramic perspective-looking at nutrition, training, the nervous system, sleep, light, supplementation, allostatic load (stress, trauma, etc.), and beyond.
These days, I take a truly holistic approach and help athletes, individuals and professionals optimize health, fitness/athletic performance, and quality of life.
