I'm a 34 year old Chattanooga native, former couch potato, and long-time book worm who has gone through the struggles of feeling weak and hating my body.

When I was in my teens, I struggled with depression, suicidality, and chronic fatigue. I struggled with my weight, spending quite a few years being overweight and even more years being underweight and under-muscled. I walked around feeling like the weakest person in the room for the majority of my life. I felt crushed under the weight of anxiety when it came time to perform physically. I felt trapped in a body I hated, and I had no idea how to motivate myself to get better.

When I was 16, I decided to take matters into my own hands and learn as much as I could about health and nutrition in order to turn my life around. That was the beginning of my health journey.

My initiation into traditional fitness began when I was 19, beginning with bodybuilding and powerlifting in a typical gym setting. For several years after leaving the gym setting, I immersed myself in natural movement disciplines, such as calisthenics, yoga, parkour, and gymnastics. I was able to get into much better shape than I ever achieved at the gym, however, I was dealing with chronic pain due to my training which left me questioning my practice and how I was training my clients.

In 2018, I took a deep dive into Functional Patterns training and discovered a system that takes into account the biological priorities for human movement. Using this system, I've been able to more effectively help my clients meet their goals and work successfully with a wider range of clients. It has also enabled me to avoid the joint pain associated with gymnastics and yoga training. In 2019 I became a certified Functional Patterns Human Foundations Practitioner, and in 2020 I became certified as a Human Biomechanics Specialist.

I believe everyone is capable of developing a body that looks great and allows them the freedom to enjoy life. It's my mission to promote the unparalleled benefits of Functional Patterns for the pursuit of optimal health.

Functional Patterns Human Biomechanics Specialist

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, playing every sport possible. It was hard to keep myself off a court or a field but being undersized led to a lack of confidence which led to me quitting most sports. At 18, I decided to do something about it and start exercising.

Things went well until they didn’t. In my early twenties, I started experiencing back issues and shoulder injuries that hindered my joy in life. At 22, I began working at a Chiropractic and Physical Therapy clinic, having become familiar with the practice. Over time I found their methodology and treatment to be short-lived, more of a band-aid approach that never offered long-term solutions to myself or other patients.

2019 is when I found a solution, Functional Patterns. Their approach was genuinely different from anything I've seen or tried. My back issues went away within a short time, and my shoulder started to heal. That's when I knew I had found a real solution.

Now I'm 30 years old, a certified Functional Patterns Practitioner, and living my dream of helping people achieve their health goals, mainly getting out of pain to enjoy their lives again. I'm committed to expanding my knowledge with Functional Patterns as I continue to attend certification courses. My goal is to demonstrate to people that long-term relief is possible.
