Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me!
I love helping people succeed in the classroom or with their own health and fitness because I know how school and exercise have benefited me in my life. Growing up, I did not speak until I was five and I was also clinically obese too. Yet, when I applied myself in school and learned how to diet and exercise, everything started to change for me. Now, I am a published author, college football coach and I enjoy public speaking.
More importantly, I know what a little success can do for a person; it can expand horizons and open up doors that may have seemed very unlikely of ever opening. On top of that, success breeds more success as Aristole says, 'Excellence is a habit.'
I am well skilled in the following areas:
* Physical Fitness and Exercise- I have coached and trained athletes and clients for over 13 years, helping people lose weight, build strength, improve mobility, manage stress and feel better! I love getting people active!
* Teaching English as a Second Language- I am certified with TESOL and have helped adults and children to write and speak better because I believe everyone can be self expressed!
* Public Speaking and Interpersonal Communication- In addition to earning a Bachelor's in Communications and a Master's in Acting, I teach people to have confidence and power when speaking in front of groups. I truly enjoying helping people overcome their fear of speaking in public!
On a personal note, I have been fortunate enough to have had some amazing teachers in my life, which is why I teach today.
I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the National Strength and Conditioning Association and I have been working at a coach and fitness instructor since 2000. I started my career as a personal trainer with Equinox Fitness in New York City and wrote two different exercise books in 2012 and 2013; the books are The Runner's Toolbox and the PreHab Exercise Book for Runners.
I am an Assistant Coach for a college football team. I have been coaching football since 2006. I have also been certified as a Level 2 Coach by USA football and I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Communication from Rutgers University and also an Master's in Acting from the University of Essex in England. Public Speaking was part of the emphasis in my Communications degree. In addition, my education and experience as an actor has also contributed to my ability in public speaking and I have taught Public Speaker to participants in a Team, Management and Leadership program in Los Angeles, Vancouver and San Diego.
I have a Master's in Acting from the University of Essex in the United Kingdom. I have studied acting at the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York City from 2001-2003. I then attended the University of Essex from 2004-2006 and earned my MA. I continued my studying in acting in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hills Playhouse from 2007-2010. I am also a play-write and and screenwriter.
