I believe every experience – positive or negative – shapes us into a better version of ourselves
Life is dynamic, challenging, and ever-changing. With the right mindset, circumstance is a powerful teacher that enables our growth, refines our character, and makes us stronger. I find purpose in the struggle and am dedicated to a life of betterment through resiliency and empathy.
With the right mindset, anything is attainable
Too many of us feel our lives are on some kind of auto trajectory - like we barely have control over what happens. But that’s not true at all. With knowledge and courage, we bounce back and create something amazing out of nothing. I’m living proof of that and strive to help others do the same.

Take the holistic approach
The human spirit, mind, and body all work in concert to achieve your personal best. I reaffirm my self worth everyday that I train at my best, find peace in chaos, chose nutrition over junk, and press on with focused resiliency.

My mission is to show young people that they can be the whole package and that they can take control of more than they think.
