If I had to choose a motto, then "jack of all trades, master of fun" would be it. Being healthy allows me to have maximum energy to do all the things I want to do and feel my best. I love to help others on this quest of mind/body optimization and ultimate enjoyment of life. I grew up in Colorado, USA and currently live in Sydney, Australia.
I love to ski, surf, rock climb, do yoga and obstacle course racing because they are challenging (both mentally and physically) and fun. I also love to get in touch with my creative side through painting and playing music. When I’m not doing those, I love to go on long walks and listen to a podcast or hang out with friends and family.
What is your favorite kind of workout?
I would choose either power yoga flow or metabolic conditioning. Both will test your limits mentally and physically and I love to take on the challenge!
What is your main focus?
I focus on balancing all aspects of your health to help you reach your goals and get you feeling and looking your best! These include sleep, nutrition, mindset, and at least the minimum effective dose of movement for maximum benefits.
How did you get interested in health?
My journey started when I was young and experienced food intolerances. Also, as a competitive athlete in soccer, NCAA rowing and later Crossfit, I became more aware of what gave me energy and took it away - in terms of sleep, nutrition, mindset, mobility and training methods.
What was one of the biggest health changes you’ve made?
Eating properly to support my active lifestyle, as well as prioritizing good sleep, nutrition and meditation to feel and perform at my best. I also do a lot of intermittent fasting, which I really love!
What do you think most people should do differently to be more healthy?
I think that many people could benefit from a higher standard of health. Look at all the cool stuff humans can do! We can run for miles, climb giant rock walls, do handstands, surf the ocean... you can do so much if you really give it a shot. To be more healthy, I think most people need to really optimize their sleep, eat quality whole foods and do a bit of resistance training (e.g. yoga, animal flow, weights...up to you!) to make you feel the most alive and healthy.
What are some books you recommend?
Endurance, Eric Shackleton's Journey to the Arctic, The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins
