I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and went on to become a D1 football player at the University of Iowa, where I earned a degree in Health and Human Physiology.
Following my college years, I embarked on a journey to Japan, where I resided in Kobe, Chiba, and Tokyo for 7 years. During my time there, I won numerous awards as a Defensive back and returner on special teams in the Japanese XLeague. Alongside my athletic endeavors, I also took on coaching roles at esteemed institutions such as Kyoto University, Kobe University, Mino Jiyu Gakuen, and many more.
Now back in the United States, my focus is on continuing to lead by example and assisting others in their pursuit of a sustainable and healthy lifestyle.
