Who Am I?
I’m just a guy who wanted to be healthy. Nothing more. Nothing less.
As I grew out of my late twenties, I went from being a single, “sleep to noon” kind of guy to a husband and father of two beautiful girls. Gone were the Saturday nights at the bar, replaced with Saturday mornings in the play room. Somewhere between a tea session and an epic Peppa Pig marathon, it occurred to me that I had a responsibility to take care of these girls (and myself) for the next several decades. I owed it to my family to ensure I was doing everything possible to live a long and healthy life … and I would come to discover I had a long way to go. I didn’t realize it then, but I was embarking on a journey toward a healthy lifestyle.
What I’ve found is that a Google search alone couldn’t quite solve this for me. Everywhere I looked on the web, I found links to articles about the benefits of a plant-based diet or the new fitness trend that the Kardashian’s were following, but there wasn’t a place to go to help me figure out which components to put in place to live a healthy lifestyle. I created this website as a way to share what I’ve learned and hopefully I inspire you along the way.
What I’m About
“I’m a hockey player playing golf,” said the wise Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore. Well, sometimes that’s how I feel. I’m a business professional working in the financial services industry, who has an innate curiosity around the concept of “living healthy.” During the day I solve operational business problems and read about process improvement. By night (and sometimes on the weekends) I read about plant-based diets, natural treatments for medical conditions and pockets of society that seem to have found the trick for a long, healthy life.
My more formal background, if it doesn’t completely bore you: I’m not your typical doctor, nutritionist, or extreme yoga instructor. I’m a strategy consultant turned “Operations Guy” with a MBA from Wake Forest and a BA from Stonehill College. I grew up and remain “Boston Strong,” though I now live in Charlotte, North Carolina with my wonderful wife and two girls, who keep me happy and busy.
