Track and basketball in high-school. Moved on to play one year of college basketball. Started training for bodybuilding in 2010 with the typical bro routines and fortunately stumbled upon science based practitioners that drastically changed the way I trained and ate. After putting in a few years of work, I competed in the Natural KC Classic in 2012, winning the novice division. For the past few years my goal has been to improve my physique, while focusing on powerlifting.

To simplify both nutrition and training for clients. Find the unique motivations and goals for each athlete and adjust accordingly. Stress improvement, whether it be strength, muscle gain or fat loss over the long-term.
Constantly trying to find balance outside of training, eating and work. Reminding myself other things are important and can be enjoyable. In my free time I enjoy "decompressing" and being very lax. My goal is always to be the best, but not make myself too seriously in the process.
