He has been active his whole life and some of his most valued memories are through various sports and activities. He played soccer all throughout high school and some in college in Belleville, Illinois, and still currently play in a league for fun down in Pensacola, Florida.
In 2013, his best friend introduced him to CrossFit and it was love at first lift. He loved it so much, he started shadowing the head training and a year later he got certified with my CF-L1 and became a coach at Mako Athletics. After finish college with a degree in Marketing, he took a full-time position at Lucid Advertising (a full marketing agency) working in the SEO department while still coaching the 5am and 6am CrossFit classes.

Outside of Mako Athletics, he loves anything that gets my body moving! He enjoys going to the beach (and all the water sports), running, hiking, mountain climbing, sky diving, the list goes on and on! He loves trying and learning new things, especially things he is bad at (e.g. Jiu-Jitsu).
He lives by the quote, “Be willing to be uncomfortable. Be comfortable being uncomfortable. It may get tough, but it's a small price to pay for living a dream.” Peter McWilliams.
