Through childhood he grew up with a naturopathy background and had the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship first hand through his parents. Owning two natural herb stores and practicing holistic health they influenced him to walk down the same path. His mother always told him to stay focus, pray, and God will take care of everything else. 

In November 8, 2013 my father passed away due to a family history of diabetes. His last words to me was “son was to stay focus on your school and your fitness career” From that day forward I made it my mission to spread the health message around the globe and to leave my mark on this earth.
