I have been knee deep in the trenches of this fitness industry since 1997. I have completed many of the nations top certifications to date. I personally mentored under and studied today’s leading educators in the field of fitness & wellness: (NASM to Athletes Performance. USA Weightlifting to the CHEK Institute. From Grass-fed cattle ranches to Weston A. Price's research, From Juan Carlos Santana to Micheal Boyle, Vern Gambetta to Mark Verstegen, Paul Chek to Charles Poliquin, Gary Grey to Grey Cook.) I’m constantly learning, searching and applying and I get STRONGER everyday.
I grind-ed through a 4 hour a day commute for 3 years just to work at Manhattans premier training facility, The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers. After paying my dues and climbing through the educational & practical rungs I started New York City Strength & Conditioning Industries. A private personal training company catering to some of NYC's prominent figures. During this time I founded my signature Self-Discipline™ wrist band (www.selfdiscipline.com), which serves as a reminder to make conscious decisions throughout the day. Tools to help battle your training, eating, fiscal, addiction, mental & emotional habits.
For the past 18 years I have had the pleasure of working with a diverse group of individuals from all walks of life including some the WORLDS most influential players in the game: Superbowl Champions. World series Champions. NBA Champions. Grammy Award winners. Oscar winners. Wall Street tycoons, Politicians, Super models, Fitness competitors. Pre & Post natal inspirations. I also had a unique opportunity to work with and mentor under Shawn 'Jay-Z' Carter for 5 years. I have been on multiple world tours coordinating training and nutrition programs from almost every major city in the US to Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Along this journey I had was able to visit and train in over 100 gyms worldwide.
In July 2008, on a one way plane ticket I brought my services to sunny Southern California to help open the Gatorade G-Fit Gym.
It was time in career to build my own brick and mortar home...HEART&HUSTLE™, Los Angeles' most prestigious, private, one-on-one personal training facility.
An accumulation of all I have seen, all that I have been through, all that I have studied, collected under one roof.

LIBERAL ARTS & SCIENCES: The term liberal arts develops the student’s rational thought and intellectual capabilities, unlike the professional, vocational, technical curricula emphasizing specialization.

Which built a solid foundation for:
Creative Writing/Poetry: How to artistically tell the world.
Public Speaking: How to speak my voice to the world.
Philosophy: How I sum up the world.
Photography: How I see the world.
Human Nutritional Science: How to properly feed the world.
