I was born in Australia, grew up in CA, and joined the Army at 18. I deployed to Baghdad, Iraq as a Sniper team leader in 2006 and after being honorably discharged in 2008 I went on to become a coach, athlete, and entrepreneur. I've never stopped learning, and I love it. I got a BA in Business, going to school at night while running my gym (and doing a lot of training) in the day. I've been lucky enough to build extensive knowledge and experience in a wide variety of subjects and I'll always consider myself a committed, lifelong student. I've always believed leaders lead by example, and earning your own self-respect is a key to a life of happiness.
