I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, where I graduated with honors as an all-star football player from Delaware, Ohio, Buckeye Valley High School in 1991. I attended Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana on a scholarship where I was a three-year letter winner in football and graduated in 1995 with a Bachelor's degree and honors in health and physical education. I attended graduate school at Indiana University in Indianapolis and earned a Master's degree in Kinesiology in 1997. While in grad school, I taught undergrad physical education classes and played  semi-pro football for the Kokomo Mustangs. I then served as the Strength Coach for Niles High School in Niles, Michigan until 2001 and then worked as the Wellness Coordinator for the Bangor High School Wellness Center in Bangor, Michigan until 2003. I was also a Personal Trainer for Gold's Gym Harbor Country in New Buffalo, Michigan until 2005. I taught health and physical fitness education classes at Ring Lardner Middle School in Niles, Michigan until 2007. I also taught health and wellness classes at Niles Senior High School in Niles, Michigan until 2013. I was a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer at the Long Beach Fitness Center in Michigan City, Indiana until 2009. I trained clients in the Strength Training and Conditioning area with Epic and Free Motion Weight Training machine equipment and Life Fitness and Precor Cardio equipment. I trained nearly a dozen clients on a weekly basis throughout the year. I was also the Personal Trainer at the Lakeland Athletic Club in Niles, Michigan until 2013. I trained clients in Strength Training with Cybex and Nautilus machines weights and with Star Trac and Precor Cardio equipment. Looking back, over the four years of 2000-03, I had the opportunity to coach two powerlifting teams to three 2nd place finishes in State level competition and one 3rd place finish at the National level competition. During my tenure in Niles and at Bangor, I've had the chance to create sport specific weight training programs, as well as build a brand new wellness center. These programs have earned State and National recognition awards.
