In addition to being a secondary school Health and Physical Education teacher, I teach kettlebells at Burr Strength and Performance in Purcellville, VA, a suburb about an hour northwest of Washington D.C.

I discovered kettlebells through training Shurite Kempo with StrongFirst Team Leaders Gary and Reneta Music, and through kettlebells I discovered Ground Force Method.

At heart, I see myself as a physical culturist. I love human movement and flow. I value the process, the journey, over the destination. I love instructing and helping people become better movers, whether it be for strength, conditioning, health, or movement confidence and competence.

My personal training goals at the moment: Recert for StrongFirst Elite; earn Gracie jiu-jitsu blue belt
