I’m a personal trainer in Mountain View, CA (part at Google HQ, part privately).
I received my Master’s of Science in Anatomy & Cell Biology from Indiana University School of Medicine in 2017; Bachelor’s in Kinesiology from Indiana University in 2012. I’m a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
The human body astonishes me, making it easy to enjoy perfecting my craft, but the real driving force behind my career has, without a doubt, been my extreme luck. I got my start as the model for a DVD my bosses, Mike Robertson and Bill Hartman, did with Eric Cressey called Assess & Correct. I’ve been able to foster relationships with some of the greatest up-and-coming trainers during their tenure as interns in Indy, I’ve never been short of information to digest.
I like learning, thinking, and being happy. As Lance Armstrong (no relation) once put it: “I only have good days and great days.“

All the best,
