I have a passion for functional, adaptable fitness and beautiful design.

I moved to Zambia in 2009 where I lived and worked both in the bush and in the large town of Livingstone. The only gym I had consisted of three kettle bells, low-hanging tree branches, a concrete wall, and heavy bags filled with safari tents. I realized pretty quickly how little equipment I needed to stay in excellent shape - no benches, mirrors, or climate controlled facility. I trained outside. That paradigm shift remained with me long after I returned to the U.S.

In 2016 I finished a Master of Arts in Sustainable Design which enabled me to combine three lifelong passions: design, sustainability, and fitness. At the suggestion of a good friend from high school I began to explore functional and sustainable human movement patterns master at some level at any age. I enjoy applying a whole-system design approach to training people in ways that help them connect with themselves, with others, and with the natural world all around them.
