Currently: I am working out of Marina del Rey performing therapy to treat soft tissue and postural dysfunction via IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization), cupping, mobilizations, and corrective exercises among others. I also work as a Home Health Physical Therapist.
I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Previously, I earned a B.S. in Biology with a minor in Business from Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC, where I was a 4-year Division 1 College Baseball player. I'm also a Certified Personal Trainer from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), and Fitness Nutrition Specialist from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). I am also certified in IASTM from RockBlade and SMART Tools.
Growing up: I was born and raised in Charleston, SC. I’ve been an athlete all of my life. I’ve played baseball ever since I was 5 years old, all the way up until I graduated college. I played year round when I was younger, traveling almost every weekend to tournaments around the East Coast. I was primarily a pitcher growing up so I didn’t need to be in the greatest physical shape body composition wise. I was very overweight as a child and into my late adolescent years. It was tough growing up, always being the fat kid. I didn’t have a girlfriend until I was in the 8th grade and my self-esteem and self-confidence were at all-time lows. Baseball was my crutch and I used that as my excuse as to why I was heavy (saying I needed the weight to throw harder). Deep down I really did want to be a normal weighted person with abs that all my friends had. I just didn’t know how.
It wasn’t until 7th grade that I was finally introduced to weight-lifting that I really started to see changes in my body. I was able to start losing some fat and building muscle for the first time that I could remember. Working out brought out a confidence in me and boosted my self-esteem greatly. It also greatly impacted my baseball skills, helping me get bigger, faster, and stronger. But, still, I was overweight. The only difference is that I had a little more muscle now but still, no abs.
The understanding of nutrition and its correlation to body composition finally came to me when I started college. I was lucky enough to have a roommate my freshman year who was big into fitness and nutrition. He always had Muscle and Fitness and different bodybuilding magazines laying around our room. I always opened them up to see which kinds of diets the pros used that I could try so I could mimic their results. I tried so many different diets from those plans and nothing ever worked. I would work out so hard and tried to eat the right foods but I still never got the results I wanted.
My transformation finally came when I was introduced to flexible dieting or “If It Fits Your Macros” from a fitness professional. I spent the summer of my sophomore year at my Grandparent’s lakehouse in Alpena, Michigan, following the plan to a “T”. I transformed my body and finally got the 6-pack I always wanted. I was able to maintain this lifestyle change throughout the rest of college.
After college, I needed something to fill the void that baseball left behind. Without baseball, I didn't have that competition I thrived upon throughout my life. Fortunately, I stumbled upon the Men's Physique division of the NPC. I entered my first competition in September of 2013 and instantly fell in love. I've been competing ever since. My best placing yet has been a 3rd place finish at the NPC Excalibur in Charleston, SC late 2014. I'm still fighting for that 1st place finish!
Fitness and nutrition have given me so much in terms of self-confidence and enjoyment that it's time for me to give back.
My goal is to teach everyone how I transformed my physique by combining my personal experiences and years of fitness and nutritional research with your active involvement. I want to be the catalyst in transforming your body!
