Fitness Coach, Empowerment Trainer, Author, Motivational Speaker, Entrepreneur, Surfer, Spartan Racer, Husband & Dad!

I've been working not only in the fitness industry since 1997 after studying Coaching & Kinesiology in College but, then going on to receiving 14-Certifications and fortunate enough to study from the best in the world of personal development.

My clients have ranged from moms & dads to busy entrepreneurs, college athletes, competitive bodybuilders, and fitness models all wanting to transform their bodies and minds.

My passion has always been to uplift, motivate, and inspire people to discover what their true potential is.

My joy comes from watching individuals accomplish more than they ever thought possible, then knowing I had some small part in helping them do that!

Life is Awesome. Not always easy... but still pretty awesome.

Enjoy the show.
