I was born and raised in the great city of St. Petersburg! I graduated from Northeast High in 2010, where I met my wife Megan and played football. After high school, I became a firefighter/paramedic for St. Petersburg Fire Rescue. I was first introduced to CrossFit during my training for the department and have loved it ever since. After three years of CrossFit, my passion for it only grew and I realized that I really love helping other athletes reach their goals. So, I took the L1 class and began coaching. Since then I have focused relentlessly on becoming the best coach I can be and truly love being at the gym. In my off time, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling.
