Exercise Physiologist in Granville, OH
“Understanding and directing individual changes that alleviate suffering and contribute to the betterment of well people.” This is my personal mission statement and it’s something that I arrived at several years ago. Prior to it I found myself moving in and out of the classrooms, teaching information that was largely unchanging and working in adjunct sales positions. In 2015 I had the opportunity to move into an applied sport science role with Ohio State Wrestling. That began another steep climb in my learning and began opening new doors. The willingness to operate via mission, rather than a personal definition has brought me to another very interesting place.
In May 2020 I began working with Longevity Labs, a nutritional supplement company founded in Austria. My role is Director of Applied Science and Brand Development. Our flagship product is SpermidineLife, a daily nutritional supplement that has been shown to trigger a key element of longevity, autophagy. Autophagy is a cellular renewal process. It is an evolutionary response to stress. The result of autophagy is elimination of potentially toxic components coupled with the recycling of nutrients contributing to cellular survival. The triggers for cellular autophagy are muted. Spermidine is a molecule found in all the cells of animals and plants. It can be extracted from plants, particularly wheat germ.
Between Longevity Labs and Ohio State I had the opportunity to do a deep dive into studying and learning the therapeutic value of cannabis. It's frankly increadable and I recommend your own exploration of the space. I am continuing to work in cannabis currently Science Advisor to Mendi. Mendi is a cannabis products company founded in Portland. Mendi’s mission is to “...improve athletes lives using nature’s best recovery tools.” Mendi does this by sticking to the imperatives of being simple, revolutionary, healthy and inclusive.
I have over 30 years of classroom and industry leadership, contributing to a strength in the ability to communicate complex concepts in a simple manner. In turn, leading to a better understanding by students, changed behaviors in athletes, as well as, brand and customer development.
I was Captain of The Ohio State University Wrestling Team, where I earned a Big 10 Championship in 1985.
