I am a husband, father to three wild kids, a professional strongman, bodybuilder, BJJ practitioner, contest prep, and strength & lifestyle coach (NSCA-CPT | PN | FNMS | J3U). I’ve played sports my entire life and have been into weight training for over 20 years. I’ve competed in strongman over 30 times in the last eight years earning my Pro status in 2019 and most recently winning America’s Strongest Man. Prior to coaching strength and nutrition, I had a decade-long career in operations management at Starbucks and Amazon. Starbucks taught me invaluable skills in leading people, and Amazon was instrumental in teaching me how to use data to drive decision-making. I am blessed now to use those skills and apply them to topics I’m passionate about.
