I personally have been fortunate enough to play soccer at both collegiate and semi-pro level, and can lay my continued success at the door of strength training. Resisting injury, building greater strength and speed, developing better skills and techniques, and accomplishing my body composition goals all as a result of an accurate training program.
For me, being a coach is kind of like being a great tour guide. I know my craft and I am passionate about developing that expertise for you. I will teach you the in’s and out’s of the subject matter at hand. I will help you navigate your journey and provide you with an accurate map to help you get to your chosen destination. I'll each step with you on your journey and when needed, I’ll step in front of you to guide you or step behind you to give you a push. As a coach I constantly teach and practice with and for my people, that is what makes me get up in the morning. Anyone can make you tired, but it takes a coach to make you better. Your health and fitness journey is YOUR journey and you know yourself better than anyone else. So I feel greatly privileged to be invited along for your ride and to provide that next level.

ACE Certified Personal Trainer
Growing up on Cape Cod, I have always led an active life. Throughout high school I played a variety of sports including softball and basketball, and was a competitive horse back rider. I continued to be very active while at the University of Vermont, where I graduated with a degree in Business Administration. During college I was introduced to kettlebells by a personal trainer. Kettlebell training not only changed me physically, but emotionally as well. I felt empowered to change my body through movements that made me feel strong and fit.
After graduation, I moved to Boston and worked at MIT Sloan School of Management. During that time, I continued to train with kettlebells and decided to complete the Strong First (SFG) Kettlebell Certification. After completing the certification, I decided to make a career change.
My passion to help my clients become the healthiest and happiest version of themselves is what drives me every day.

NSCA - CSCS
Over the years I’ve played a number of sports including rugby & football; but my real passion has always been training – inside & outside the gym. I enjoy learning about, practicing, and coaching all kinds of fitness through movement; especially those involving kettlebells, barbells, sandbags, and just your own bodyweight. I believe there’s nothing new or revolutionary when it comes to fitness – you just need a passionate coach to help guide you where you want to go and that’s why I love it.
In addition to training, my family & friends will also tell you I have a love for eating. I have embraced my minor obsession with food and turned it into a love for nutrition and cooking. There’s nothing better than whole, natural food, cooked right.
Prior to joining Ethos, my journey involved coaching and working with some amazing people as a part of the Strength & Conditioning staff of both the UMass Amherst - Olympic Sports team, and the USA Men’s National Rugby 7’s Team as they prepared for Rio. In addition I have been lucky enough to
coach with the Mens National Champion, Mystic River Rugby Club.
I’ve come to believe that best way to reach your goals is through an enjoyable process that you eventually come to love. As a coach I will give you 100% of my knowledge and effort to help you reach your training goals- whatever they may be.

Originally having made the move to Boston to study music, I wanted to maintain my regular fitness training regimen while performing and teaching. Through my exploration of different training modalities that could help keep my training consistent, I found the art of kettlebell training. Not only was the convenience of kettlebells an aspect I was drawn to but also the foundational movements of the body that were required for exercises such as the kettlebell swing and the get up. Soon enough, I found that my knowledge of how my body moves increased as well as being able to stay consistent with my fitness. I then began to share what I had learned with fellow musicians who were also looking to stay fit while juggling their busy music schedules. Ultimately, helping out friends and other musicians led me to researching certifications to further my knowledge which led me to StrongFirst.
Through fitness coaching and musical instruction, I discovered a passion for helping others achieve their goals and guiding them to find enjoyment in the process. Having learned from great coaches and teachers in the fitness and music industries respectively, I strive to inspire each person that I work with to bring out the best versions of themselves and to give them to the education to continue their practice on their own well into their later years.
