I am a different kind of strength coach. I come from a Mechanical Engineering background and became a full-time coach simply because I had to. I began coaching out of my passion for movement, athletics, and teaching. Shortly though, I realized that I had to leave engineering to focus my path to create a stronger and healthier world by helping others develop a relationship with their body. I've been coaching for nearly 6 and have now worked with 100's of individuals to improve their lives through movement.
Over the years, my philosophy grew much deeper and more holistic . My programs and coaching are for individuals who want to develop more than just strength and athleticism, but a deep relationship with their body and mind. Using various modalities, I create personalized programs that build strength, mobility, and stability for beautiful and fluid movement. You will cultivate an awareness and gratitude for your body that leads to a healthy and fulfilling life.
My life and coaching center around my personal mantra - always something to work on, always something to celebrate. A meaningful life and optimal health come from the finding the balance between a quest for progress and gratitude for what you have and what you have accomplished.
As a competitive athlete, passionate teacher, and perpetual seeker, I have been exploring movement my whole life. From gymnastics and soccer as a child, to running and triathlons, CrossFit and Olympic weightlifting, to skateboarding, surfing, and yoga, I have committed my life to seeking the awareness and fulfillment that comes with new physical challenges. As a coach, I bring this same fun and exploration into your program. Whether you are a high-level athlete seeking to improve in your sport, an advanced mover seeking to grow your gymnastics or handstand prowess, or just beginning your journey, I can guide you toward your goals.

Movement Will Change the World
Humans need to move all the time. We are physical beings and most of the world lives in a way that leaves them hopelessly disconnected from their physicality. I believe that much of the modern health crisis and even an aspect of the state of affairs in world politics results from people maintaining a poor understanding and relationship with their body. Our postures, movement patterns, facial expressions, and gestures reflect our internal environment. As above, so below. This process is also a two-way street and deepening our relationship with our bodies helps bring health and fulfillment to all other aspects of our lives.
