Alex P. Keaton was my idol growing up. I’ve always had that dual nature of being interested in business (numbers, wearing a suit, working in an office) while also being a creative at heart (singing/playing guitar in alt/punk bands, writing, and acting).
My academic advisor in college told me to learn a trade after I told her I wanted to be a writer. Being 20 and infatuated with Goethe and the Romantic movement, that wasn’t what I wanted to hear. I wanted to be an ARTIST, not work in an office.
Fast forward 20 years and the office worker has won out the majority of the time while I’ve still dabbled as an artist. Having worked for a number of years in corporate recruiting, I’ve always had side gigs, be it photography, playing in a band, DJing, writing freelance entertainment articles, acting, voiceovers.
Now I’ve put all that energy in chronicling my workout adventures to first inspire, and ultimately surprise, people about what can be accomplished while maintaining a delicious balance with your lifestyle. I’m currently working on several upcoming fitness books while also commanding my day job and Caribbean adventures.
