I grew up in the Los Angeles area and played various sports as a kid. I was also a member of the Boy Scouts and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Through my involvement with the scouting program, I discovered my love of hiking, the outdoors, and helping other people.
I began college majoring in heath but after two years took a break in order to refocus. I became a US Marine and served for four years. After my stint as a Marine I enrolled in the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) to learn how to become a personal trainer and help people reach their goals.
In my spare time, I like to spend time with my girlfriend and our three dogs.
