I’m an Entrepreneur (highly overused term today), CEO/Athlete and lifelong student of 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 enjoy strategizing and consulting with aspiring entrepreneurs, startups and organizations of all sizes. I’m a contributing writer for Forbes, Entrepreneur, HuffPost, TechCo, and various other outlets. I’m also author of the “Entrepreneur's Field Manual”.

My goal on this site is to inspire others in the areas of entrepreneurship, health, fitness, body and mind.  I’ll also cover my interesting discoveries and personal thoughts in all of these areas. Ultimately, I will be working on a new book that covers life optimization in the modern world. 

I enjoy spending time with my family and I’m constantly learning and growing. When it comes to athletics, I’ve competed in over 25 endurance events (triathlons, ocean swims, cycling, etc.), studied martial arts and I am a former collegiate basketball player. 

I believe you should always be working to become the best YOU, that you can be.
