As a prior Navy Corpsman with combat experience across multiple tours of duty, I have overcome personal adversity through higher education and a lifelong pursuit of learning. Today, I specialize in athletic operations, offering strength and conditioning and sports nutrition coaching to both professional sports teams and tactical athletes. Drawing from my extensive research and insights, which have culminated in the publication of several books on the subject, I am deeply committed to evidence-based practice. My diverse background, which includes running my own sports supplement company, establishing the Mindfully Tactical Foundation, and penning authoritative works in the field, has helped me develop strong leadership skills that align with my core values. I firmly believe in the importance of mindfulness and training tactical athletes to optimize their performance.
