Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, job, interests/hobbies, etc).
I’m happily married to Lauren Helton and I’m originally from St. Louis MO. I currently work for Anheuser Busch at their Houston Brewery where I work on the packaging side… anything that comes in a bottle or keg is from one of my lines! I also am a part of taste panel at the brewery so I make sure everyone’s favorite beer is perfect before it hits the market. I played baseball and football in college and looooove snowboarding. I’ve been snowboarding on every continent except Africa (its possible) and Anartica (also possible). Otherwise I play golf and slow pitch softball.
When did you start working out District H?
I realized it was getting harder and harder to lace up my snowboarding boots because I wasn’t as flexible as I once was. I had only been lifting weights for years but was clearly losing flexibility. Also as I get older I am starting to prioritize maintaining my body for the long haul
What made you decide to start working out in general?
I’ve play sports my entire life so naturally.
How have your workouts made an impact on your life outside of the gym?
Endurance has improved and my focus at work has increased. I enjoy working out in the morning because it gets me rev’d up for the day. Plus there is no better way to start the day than a huge scoop of preworkout
