I was born with an innate desire to explore. Both my parents worked for Delta, so I grew up always wanting to travel the world myself. My first taste of travel came through playing ice hockey: visiting Germany when I was in middle school and later Sweden in high school. I’ve always enjoyed playing competitive sports (and still do) because it gave me the opportunity to push myself physically. The travel part? Just an added perk.
I moved to New York in the summer of 2009 to pursue a career as a male model, and that was definitely out of my comfort zone. But my apprehension faded quickly as I eagerly embraced the opportunity to explore a new city. I got more and more into health and fitness, looking to get myself into the best shape possible. People started to notice. Friends started asking me for tips and wanted to work out with me and see my routine. And now, 7 years later, I’m ready to take on the next stage in my career.
I feel my best when I’m challenging myself physically—be it with a new sport, travel destination or workout. I strive to be my best and want to help others achieve their potential and to help them tap into that amazing feeling you get when you challenge what you believe is possible. With this blog, and my personal training business on the side, I want to share my passion for health, fitness and adventure with others in hopes that they find a way to seamlessly incorporate it into their busy lives.
