Fitness writer and frequent blogger. Awesome high-fiver. Lover of coffee and craft beer. Deliverer of happiness at @Automattic.
For the past few years, I’ve worked in a variety of roles including writing, editing, formatting, and troubleshooting to help others publish their thoughts and ideas.
I’m extremely passionate about the idea of digital publishing. It’s what gets me up in the morning and keeps me up late at night. That’s why I made it my focus after years of studying exercise science and working as a personal trainer. Currently, I’m fortunate to work for Automattic, the parent company behind WordPress.com.
In the past, I’ve been a personal trainer, personal training manager, and frequent freelancer for a variety of fitness publications. I’ve been fortunate to have my work featured on a variety of health and fitness websites including Greatist, Men’s Fitness, Muscle and Fitness, Reps!, DailyBurn, Breaking Muscle, Runner’s World, Running Times, Competitor, and a few others. I’ve also had a few articles syndicated on The Huffington Post and The USA Today. Here are a few pieces I particularly enjoyed:
Importance of Relative Strength for Runners on Competitor
Bodyweight Training for Hypertrophy on Breaking Muscle
10 Gym Mistakes to Avoid on Men’s Fitness
8 Best PT Methods Explained on Greatist
Best Paw Forward on Runner’s World
Anything new that I have published will be posted here.
I love to connect with other passionate folks. If you want to chat, feel free to contact me here.
