"Keep it simple. It doesn't have to be hard to be effective"

Homegrown in Baltimore, MD. As a former professional model, I got into fitness to help maintain my size and adapt my look for different roles. As I started to learn more about the health and fitness field, I found I had a real affinity for a job in the industry. Playing sports at Cooley, basketball, racquetball & squash, helped me to find my footing and my passion for competition & coaching. When I'm not at work, you'll find me listening to music, watching movies & shopping (finding great deals).

Hard work + dedication = success

As a fellow East Baltimorean, I grew up playing a variety of sports: basketball, football, racquetball, track & field. Because of my love of sports, I landed at the Cooley Center at the age of 14; where I found myself spending a majority of my time. My background in sports led me to find my passion for fitness and helping people. As a lifetime member of the Cooley Center, I know the history and people that make this place so special; which gives me the expertise in customer service. When I’m not at Cooley, you’ll find me coaching youth basketball and football. My family keeps me busy and focused in my spare time.

"Lift with your IQ, not with your Ego"

I've worked in a number of gyms over the last 20 years and this is the best staff of Personal Trainers I've ever been associated with. I will only say I'm old and I'm in great shape, I eat right and workout. Our patterned behaviors and rote habits are what really dictate our lives and fitness levels.  If you are willing to put in the time and make some sacrifices with your diet, I will get you in the shape you desire.

I hail from Towson, MD. When I'm not at work, you'll find me spending time with my wife, engaging in political discussions, mountain biking, watching & playing sports.
