I have played sports at a high level, and applied principles in nutrition for over a decade. However, growing up, despite my parents requests otherwise, I ate very poorly. When given the choice, I mainly consumed white bread, sugar, and meat. That all changed when I met Dave Meyer who had just finished an off-season with the Indianapolis colts. He let me read his NFL training camp manual which talked about the importance of diet and nutrition for athletes. As I read, my whole outlook on what I was eating began a transformation. I was never the biggest or the fastest player, but the things I learned and applied about nutrition helped give me numerous advantages in strength, energy, performance and recovery over my competitors and I count my diligence in this area as one of the primary factors in my ability to play sports at a high level.
I played for University of Virginia’s football program from 2004-2008. After starting my career as a walk-on, I ended up leading the team in tackles 3 years in a row.
Since finishing my career, I have been in the field of health and nutrition. I have also helped coordinate Biggest Loser Cville contest benefiting the Hope Community Center, Biggest Loser Richmond benefiting Charity Family Life, and Biggest Loser Roanoke benefiting Young Life Capernaum. My areas of passion have branched out from sports performance and nutrition to wellness and weight management.
