I’ve been in New York for 9 years and I still love being here. I’ve
seen some changes but when you’ve lived here long enough you know
what to expect. After all these years I’m finally starting to
understand how this city works. Good thing it only took me a
I would describe myself as honest, kind, and sincere. At this point
in my life I have a better sense of who I am. That being said, I’m
always trying to better myself whether it be my health, preparing
for my future, or learning from my experiences. Easier said than
done, but it’s always the goal.
Health is a big part of my life, but I don't spend all day in a
gym. In fact, it's probably the last place I want to be. My
definition of being healthy is a great walk/ hike, lecture or just
being with the right person. It's all about what makes you feel
What I’m doing with my life
I've worked in the Health and Wellness industry for the last 8
years as a Trainer and teacher. There are so many things to learn
when it comes to our health and you can’t do this job unless that
actually excites you. I’ve been very fortunate to have a great
group of people over the years. I’ve worked with athletes to
grand-mothers. No matter what their goals, the enjoyment in helping
someone make a positive change is always the same.
I have my own company, in addition to teaching classes and
workshops. I started my own health pursuit with boxing, then into
Marathons and Triathlons. As I got a little more curious I sought
out great teachers in various fields. Over the last few years I've
gotten into yoga and got certified, but not actually teaching. It
was more for the curiosity. I've created a nice business for
myself, but I'm always curious about what else I can do. If there’s
a restless feeling in me it's a desire to explore my potential.
I’m really good at
I have wide variety of people in my life from great teachers to
watching Football with good friends on Sunday. I think I adapt very
well to whatever personality is in front of me. I enjoy talking and
hearing a person's story. Nothing is more relaxing then being with
people who allow you to be who you are.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure, but I’m curious to know. I'm sure it's different for
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite book is "The Last American Man" By Elizabeth Gilbert. I
actually went to visit and lived with the person she wrote about.
It's a good story if you want to hear it. Anything by Malcolm
Gladwell, Steve Jobs biography. If you are in business or want to
understand why you own an Ipad or Iphone you should read this
I’m a huge movie fan so I can’t say just one. I’m trying to watch
all the movies that have won major awards. If I had to choose, I’d
pick Woody Allen’s early work, one of the first two Godfather’s or
Goodfellas. I’m also a big Jack Nicholson fan. I’m curious what
that says about my personality!
I have so many interest that my range in books and movies always
Music... too many to choose from, but I just finished a book on
George Harrison so I've recently become a fan of his solo work and
the Beatles. I'm also a big fan of Alexi Murdoch, Coldplay, City
and Colour, and Band of Horses.
The six things I could never do without
Yoga, the beach, hope, good friends, conversation, dried mango,
cappuccino, raw almonds, being close to someone, and Pizza from
Staten Island (It's the best I've ever had).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I've come to realize the main things most people think about are
health, relationships, financial security, happiness, the future,
where we’d like to travel, and maybe a few unanswered questions.
That basically narrows it down for me.
I also think a lot about relationships. Not just male/female (which
I do think about, but don't we all?). I'm fascinated by how we
choose the people we want in our life.
Of course where I'd like to travel next. Most of my travelling has
been through South America (Peru, Costa Rica), and parts of the
U.S. This year I'll either go overseas again or travel through the
West Coast to see my brother. Europe is on the list, but I'm saving
that trip for the right person.
On a typical Friday night I am
A good class or movie, then sushi and a few beers. I prefer great
day to a long night anyway.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have it all figured out, but I think I'm getting
I'm also a very proud uncle and think about when I can see my
nieces and nephew again. They've had a great impact on me and what
I value. They are some of the greatest teachers of my life.
