I’m an Entrepreneur, CEO & Athlete with a passion for longevity science, fitness, philosophy and history.
Professionally, I’m a 6-time Inc. 5000 CEO who built and leads an award-winning national company. I also consult and provide strategy & marketing solutions for entrepreneurs, startups and various companies through Elev8520 which I manage with my brother.
Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to consult and learn from some of the most successful people in their trade such as NBA World Champions, Grammy Award winning artists, Fortune 500 CEO’s and many others. I’m big a believer that success leaves clues and by soaking up knowledge from proven winners, one can create their own unique formula for success.
I’m a contributing writer for Forbes, Entrepreneur, HuffPost, TechCo, business.com and various other outlets. I’ve also authored the “Entrepreneur's Field Manual” where I outline what it takes to start, build, grow and lead a highly successful company from the ground up with no outside investors. I’ve also been a guest on many podcasts such as Mixergy, Hack The Entrepreneur, Success IQ and Success Unfiltered.
My blog chronicles interesting discoveries and personal thoughts on my quest for ultimate health & performance along with business tips and entrepreneurial advice. Currently, I’m working on a new book on how to drive success and live a positive life in today’s modern world. In 2019 I will be launching & co-hosting the "BraynStorm" podcast with tips on business, success & life.
In my personal time, I enjoy spending it with my family and I’m constantly learning and growing. When it comes to athletics, I’ve competed in over 35 races that have included (triathlons, marathons, open ocean swims & cycling). I’ve studied Taekwondo, Krav Maga, Boxing and am a former collegiate basketball player who can still hit the NBA range 3-pointer.
