I am a 28 year old professional beach volleyball player. The only vegan pro player in the US. I have studied health and nutrition on my own for the past 8 years which inevitably brought me to the decision of becoming vegan. I love playing volleyball and competing with the best players in the world in hopes that I, one day, will be one of those elite players. In the meantime I am the youngest of the top 20 players in the US. My other passions include writing about health, nutrition and eco-responsibility. I am kind of a nerd when it comes to reading books, watching movies and digesting research studies about health. I try and break down what I learn into easy to understand and fun to read information for the average person. That way, learning about how to be healthier and a better steward to the planet is fun and accessible to everyone. I write and edit The Body Blog at worldhealthhub.com and just opened an online store selling the best and most eco-friendly health products. Visit the World Health Club at worldhealthhub.com/shop Contact me anytime. I'm an open book!

Did I have you thinking there for a moment that I am a professional outdoors-man, a camper, hiker or trekker? Cause I am so not. Actually, I spend all my free time at the beach. I play professional beach volleyball and am an avid health and wellness advocate.

Bio: Long story short, I ate like crap growing up, got sick all the time and had acne that followed me well into my twenties and I was fed up with my reality. I tried everything without success until I shelled out $50 for the “Acne Yoda” e-book. This was my first AHA! moment where I started to understand that my health was the result of what I put in my mouth. Read More
