Athletic & Training Background

I was a four sport athlete all throughout high school playing football, basketball, baseball and track. Once I moved onto college I became heavily involved in playing intramural sports and working out. Once I graduate from college I was introduced to CrossFit and Olympic lifting which changed everything for me. Since then I have been training at a very high level at my home gym CrossFit North Peoria were I follow Misfit Athletics programming.

Current Role Working with Athletes

I currently work with a varying level of athlete ranging from high school athletes to high level CrossFit athletes and Olympic lifters.

Professional Philosophy

I like to begin by establishing a stable base in order to progress into functional and athletic movement. I base most of my treatments to increase the patient's mobility both in the joints and soft tissue. Then move onto developing a stable base and progressing into functional and athletic movement.
