About

First of all, I want to thank you for visiting my site. Whoever you are, whatever you do, I hope you find this blog insightful.

Sports and training have been a part of my life since I was very young. I grew up outside of Pittsburgh, and my childhood was spent playing sports with my brother, cousins, and neighbors. I remember watching World’s Strongest Man competitions on TV, cheering on Magnus Samuelsson, and then using my dad’s weight set to try to become more like him. This love for sport and training led to me becoming a walk-on Quarterback at Wake Forest University. It was not until my third torn labrum, however, that I really dove into the science and practice of strength & conditioning. This started my career path as a strength coach, and it has been a great ride so far.

I am currently the Interim Director of Strength & Conditioning at University of Maryland. I work with Women’s Volleyball, Women’s Gymnastics, and Women’s Lacrosse. Previously, I also worked with Women’s Tennis and Men’s Golf. Before I started at Maryland, I was the Graduate Assistant at Northwestern University and an intern at University of Michigan. Throughout my young career, I have been blessed to work with some of the best student-athletes in the country. I have also had the amazing opportunity to work with sport coaches and strength coaches who have taught me priceless lessons about training, coaching, business, and life. This blog is my way of sharing these lessons along with my personal thoughts and methods.

I appreciate you visiting my site and I hope you enjoy. If you have any questions for me, please leave me a comment in the Contact section or visit my social media pages at the top of the site!
