I grew up in sunny Sarasota, Florida. Which is known for it’s beaches, especially Siesta Key, which is ranked the #1 beach in the nation. My parents are the ones who encouraged me to start playing football and baseball at the age of 5, Which sparked my interest in weightlifting and nutrition. For me it was always a dream of mine to be involved in the fitness industry, and helping people live better lives. I knew this was my passion at a very young age. My driving force that gets me up in the morning will always be helping others.
