Athletic & Training Background

I've been participating in athletics for my whole life in some form or another, from Varsity Baseball in High School to Athletic Training as an undergraduate to my current focus on barbell training. I continue to play soccer and basketball in independent leagues, while currently training for powerlifting.

Current Role Working with Athletes

I'm a physical therapist at Joint Ventures Physical Therapy and Fitness in Boston, MA working with a wide range of patients that come from various backgrounds in fitness and athletics while maintaining a busy professional life. These are people who are looking to remain athletic and healthy, whether their main activity is a team sport, weight training, or tackling the everyday challenges of life. I love working with patients and clients of all walks of life, because at the end of the day, we're all athletes of life.

Professional Philosophy

I strongly believe in empowering my patients, by guiding them and educating them to help achieve their goals through their own hard work. What I find is most effective and gratifying, is when I can help people recognize the changes they were able to make as a part of their own mindset, effort and will.
