I am a dad, a husband, and perpetual learner originally from Northern California and now live in Portland, Oregon. The pursuit of self-betterment has been a part of my life since i was a teenager working at a local gym.

Through my twenties, I fell out of balance in various areas of life – mainly diet and exercise. As my life roles began to change, I began to explore the importance of nutrition. With that, came diet – avoidance of refined foods and focusing on the quality of ingredients. But excuses continued to overshadow my activity levels, and my health remained stagnant.

In September of 2016 I was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer, underwent immediate surgery, and finished chemotherapy in April 2017. Since the diagnosis, diet and exercise have been a focus of mine, and I continue to tweak and refine based on how I feel, other life happenings, and the seasons.
