As a kid who leaned on video games and food, basketball changed my life. Now, as a certified trainer, I’ve helped everyone from celebrity chefs to soccer moms crush their fitness goals. It’s all about empowering you to master your mind and body, no matter where you’re starting from.

Education & Experience: Certified personal trainer (AFAA-CPT, NSCA-CSCS, AFAA-Group Fitness)

I grew up as an overweight kid who used video games and food as a crutch—to help find some measure of “control” within my chaotic childhood. Needless to say, my relationship with food spiraled out of control—and I developed a deep lack of self-confidence. But when I picked up a basketball for the first time, everything changed.

I played basketball at SUNY New Paltz, where I discovered the profound benefits of the weight room. Through my fitness studies, I met a network of truly powerful human beings, and helped everyone from celebrity chefs to soccer moms to high school athletes live their best lives. I realize fitness goals vary from person to person—but that’s no barrier; I’m passionate about helping all people learn to master their minds and bodies.
