I own and operate Bodytribe Fitness out of Sacramento, CA. No natural-born physical gifts, but my built-in software is tenaciously inquisitive and playful, so movement and strength are vehicles to passion, creativity and empowerment. After many a soul-sucking year in the fitness industrial complex, it behooved me to spend over 15 years in the realm we’ve dubbed the Physical SubCulture, where the truth about strength has survived underground for ages, despite the corporate culture trying to sell a different animal.
From hand-balancing and parkour to competitive weightlifting and powerlifting, I’ve embraced many avenues of intensity, cultivating in a unique system of movement and embodiment. My studies and training have cultivated in the Bodytribe system which has taken me around the country, introducing a philosophy of strength as usefulness, and encouraging thousands of people worldwide to embrace intensity, through play, strength and embodiment, as a vehicle to tribal empowerment.
