My journey to find comfort in uncomfortable situations began shortly before high school. It was then that I discovered wrestling. Throughout my time as a wrestler (pre-high school through College), I became obsessed with exploring what my body could achieve. Throughout grueling wrestling practices and matches, I learned that if I surrendered to the process, my body would keep going long after my mind thought it wanted to quit.
After retiring from College wrestling, I noticed I still wanted to push my limits, so I joined the United States Marine Corps. My tenacity and dedication to pushing my limits earned me the distinction of Platoon Honor Graduate in Bootcamp and Company Honor Graduate in School of Infantry.
After I was honorably discharged as a Sergeant of the Marine Corps, I still had more self-discovering to do, so I began Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu—in which I am now a Black Belt under the legendary Jean Jacques Machado. While optimizing my body for Jiu-Jitsu competition and day-to-day life, I accidentally discovered the Wim Hof Method. I found that the breathwork techniques and cold water immersion practices could focus my mind, center me, and calm my nerves in a way nothing else had ever before.
Years later, I'm still training the Wim Hof Method, as well as mindfully meditating and growing spiritually. It's the foundation of everything I do.
