"I want to equip and empower others with strategies to improve their quality of life. Everyone's journey, perspective, and repertoire of skills are unique - so let us utilize these to build self-confidence and relationships by creating healthier thought and behavioral habits. There is a lot of pull and push, give and take, in life - take a chance on yourself, and I bet you find the power of change to be fulfilling. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. This is my home and my goal has always been to give back to the community that raised me. My wife and I enjoy frequenting local eateries, hiking, traveling, attending local music and sporting events, and bringing our families closer together. I coached varsity baseball for six years and junior high basketball for three years to integrate mentorship and my love for athletics. I believe in investing my time in our community and mentoring the youth so I can be an inspirational force as so many adults were for me."
