For those who know me, know I live life unscripted.
Years ago I made the bold decision to be a participant in my life, to live it out loud and refuse to get caught up in boring routines. Within that attitude, I make it my goal to empower others through a healthy lifestyle to take initiative and begin living each day better than the one before.
I live in ways that accentuate my passions, with what gets me going each day and ways to empower others.
