After spending the first 20-something years of my life in a constant battle with my weight, and then nearly losing both my legs while on deployment as a US Marine, I have learned the tools to win at life through my own experiences and battles with anxiety and PTSD. I yearn to show people that food is merely the surface of how their life can improve, and the real journey begins once you dig deep and discover the power that has always been inside each of us.
I am a professional husband, bonus dad, and family man. I am also personally and professionally passionate about people and their lives and businesses. Growing from my personal history of loss, challenges, abuse, and trauma as a result of my time in the Marines, I developed and polished mental and lifestyle tools and hacks that have allowed me to push through and coexist with the human experience.
I deeply understand the benefit of sharing life with other people. As a result, I share my knowledge by teaching and coaching mindset tools on a personal level and developing and implementing conscious marketing products for businesses and entrepreneurs. Believing that the mediator between the head and the hands must be the heart, I bring unique and effective expertise to both individuals and business ventures.
As a New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Kitchen, I also bring my mindset game to the world of food by training others to connect with the emotions and relationships that form the foundation of sharing meals with other people. When I share myself through food and recipes, I use the opportunity to dig below the food and embrace the humanity that runs through these cultural mainstays.
I spend my time savoring every moment possible with my wife, Lindsey, my bonus daughter Cheyenne, and my newest addition, Branson. I enjoy connecting with other people, taking ice baths, leveling up my life game, and using giant whiteboards to map out solutions that make a difference in the world.
