A typical day in my life includes…

working with clients at my gym, Transform Scottsdale, to help coach them on their training, nutrition and any other challenges they may be facing on their weight loss journey!

I was born…

inPhoenix, AZ.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the outdoors! We have some of the most beautiful hiking trails and views in the country. It’s also hard to beat the weather, especially in the winter!

I’m listening to…

mostly hip-hop and alternative. I love 90’s alternative.

My family…

is a huge part of my life. I’m fortunate to have everyone in my family here in AZ with me and we love to get together for dinners out and sports!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my beautiful wife. She is my business partner and best friend and I couldn’t ask to spend an evening with a more incredible person!

One thing I cannot live without…

basketball. I play league basketball year-round and can usually be found playing pick-up games 2 or 3 days a week!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a chef. I actually started culinary school but my struggles with binge eating and obesity caused me to choose a different path.

I’m inspired by…

anyone who is willing to step outside their comfort zone and confront their fears. This is something that took me a long time to learn and I admire anyone who is able to overcome this challenge.

The one person who motivates me is…

my father. He is a veteran, a Leukemia survivor, and one of the hardest working people I have ever met. Regardless of what he has faced in his life, he has always approached it with an attitude of being able to overcome it!

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

the overall understanding of FOOD. Having been an expert in the field of nutrition for a while now it is unbelievable how misguided we are when it comes to food.

The perfect day would be…

being able to sleep past 4:30a! Seriously, being able to sleep in, go out to breakfast and just overall relax with the people I care about.

My first job was…

working at NYPD Pizza, this probably wasn’t the best for my struggles with weight either!

My favorite escape…

is basketball, even if I am just going to a court to shoot around by myself this is something that will always help me clear my head.

My life…

has been truly a fortunate one. Both the struggles and fortunes I have encountered have helped me become who I am today.

I’m currently working on…

launching my own supplement line, Transform Sciences, which will be geared towards providing safe, high quality products to help others on their own transformation journeys.

Always…

remember that you are in control of your own situation. Our life is determined not by what happens to us, but by how we respond.

Never…

let someone else dictate your actions.

Favorite Quote…

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Biggest Dream…

is to influence as many lives possible for the better. My ultimate goal has always been to create a platform for myself to reach as many people as possible so that I can share what I have learned with them, that’s why I love going to Transform Scottsdale day after day!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when people blame a lack of time on being able to accomplish something. We are all given the same 24 hours in each day, we choose what to do with them!
