by profession, i am a dj and a mechanical engineer. i started crossfit a bit later in life and view it as something that truly helps me do all the fun things that i want to do in life like skateboarding, snowboarding, and martial arts.


How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

i aim toward eating paleo but haven't quite managed to do that all the time. i eat strictly five days out of the week. i still consume some dairy but try my best to keep it either raw or cultured. i limit my consumption of legumes but still let some in now and then. i like natural, "real" foods.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

i train at norcal crossfit san josé at 400 saratoga avenue. my usual coaches are pat and taz, rusty and laura, and kara.

My Athletic Background

I played college sports

I regularly play recreational sports

i was on the taekwondo team for sparring, forms, and demonstrations at cal (uc berkeley), used to instruct taekwondo, and still manage to practice these days just a little although not as often as i wish i could. i enjoy snowboarding during the snow months in northern california and skateboarding year round.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

i first experienced crossfit at crossfit silicon valley with judd and michaela xavier but am now training at norcal crossfit.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

because of the class schedules and my duties as a dad and at my jobs, i usually can only train four days a week, but try to stay active all the time just for fun.
