Managing Producer at a marketing agency + Functional Fitness coach on the side
My story in a few words:
I grew up in a small town in Ohio. Being closeted through the end of high school, I wanted to get out of that town quick and ended up at Kent State University. I graduated with a degree in Visual Communication Design with a minor in Photo Illustration. From there I moved to Cleveland where I got my first big-boy job which I’m still in since 2007.
Fitness has always been a big part of my life. As a kid I had a brief stint in gymnastics and played little league (which I sucked at). In high school I did cross country and track. I didn’t do any organized sports in collage but frequented the rec center to run, lift and swim. Shortly after college I got into triathlon—which I got bored with a few years in, and started CrossFit. I loved it so much I decided I wanted to be able to coach so I got various fitness certificates including my current CrossFit L2 trainer cert. Founded NinjaFitness and coach clients on the side.
For fun, I love to travel, go to EDM festivals & shows, chill on beaches and enjoy great whiskey or coffee in the company of good friends.
