My Story

While all of my other friends in Rhode Island were playing traditional sports, I took to BMX racing at the age of 7.  What started as fun turned into traveling all over the country, literally competing 7 days a week, to years later winning the World BMX Championship.  Upon a 13 year retreat from cycling and ballooning up to an unhealthy 230lbs, the next chapter started racing road bicycles.  What began as a mission to lose some weight at 32 years old, ended up being a march through the USA Cycling categories to a category 1 racer.   Life was good racing pro, winning road and criterium championships along the way.  With no clear goals on the radar, I took the battle internal.   I started a mission to see how lean and strong I could get in the offseason.   While thinking I was invincible, I ignored my body which ultimately led to Adrenal Fatigue causing my body shut down.  I went from competing at an elite level, to not being able to walk around a parking lot weeks later.   Terrified not knowing what was going on, western medicine had no answers.   I had to fix myself.  After being forced to let go of everything, I undertook an 18 month struggle to get my health back.    With the knowledge I gained through my experience, I am happier than ever and looking to help others on their journey.
