NASM Certified Personal Trainer & Fitness Nutrition Specialist
I grew up in Saint Louis, moved to Springfield, MO to attend Missouri State University, but dropped out after completing 3 years and moved to Oklahoma City, to open a supplement store (TRIAD) and start a supplement brand (Define Nutrition). I did this because I have 3 major passions in life. My first one is fitness and more specifically bodybuilding. I am a very visual person, so I love to change the way I look and even compete in the Oklahoma NPC. Second is business. I love working hard to grow something, and everything it takes to create a great business. Third and most important is helping people. I have found that the more I focus on helping others, the better I do in life. This goes for our customers as well as the employees here at Define and TRIAD. Not only do I want to create companies that offer the best products and unbelievable customer service, but also a company that creates the most awesome opportunities for everyone that works here.

NASM Certified Personal Trainer & Fitness Nutrition SpecialistOriginally from a small town in Northern Indiana, I’ve been involved with sports and fitness my entire life. That led to me rowing collegiately at the University of Delaware and then at Oklahoma City University. After I finished up rowing and left school, I found CrossFit as my competitive outlet. I even met Kevin, Vincent, and Chad at a competition a couple of months before their supplement and nutrition store, Triad, even opened their doors! (I think if you look at my order history, I came into the store the first week they were open, and I’ve been shopping here ever since.) It was through competing and coaching as many CrossFit classes that I was able to, that I found my passion: helping people take control of their health. And that’s why when Kevin reached out about working at Triad, I leaped at the opportunity! It was through my work in the store that I learned about Define Nutrition and what they stand for... Simple, science-backed products that actually work. #defineyourself

The first introduction I had to anything fitness related was my friend's dad showing us Ronnie Coleman videos every weekend when I spent the night. Instead of renting movies from blockbuster like normal kids, his dad had us watch all his dvds with him. After that it was sports throughout junior high and high school. When I graduated I didn’t have any sort of outlet to keep myself in shape, so I decided to try going to the YMCA and just lift weights. Immediately I became addicted. I met some of my closest friends at the YMCA and I became a sponge to everything fitness/supplement related. I slowly began to notice that not everyone in the fitness and supplement industry genuinely wanted to help people. It was all about the money. So I was always hesitant about what I took in, information wise. Alfonso and I worked together at the YMCA and initially when he mentioned TRIAD, I had my usual skepticism about it, but once he explained how they separated themselves in education, personal involvement, and overall care for his individual needs, I was sold. Almost two years later, I had the opportunity to be hired on part time and I jumped at it immediately. Couple that with the opportunity to be a part of a supplement company that genuinely cares about what goes into their products and takes the knowledge aspect seriously, and I cannot be thankful enough. We’re here to change the world, one life at a time.
Nutrition Consultant/ Supplement Expert
NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Nutrition Coach & Corrective Exercise Specialist
About two years ago I moved from Clinton, Oklahoma to start something new for myself in a place where I had more resources. It has always been my intention to help people live a better life using my experiences as my motivation. Starting in high school I got into sports, which slowly got me into working out at the little box gym our school provided for athletes. Slowly but surely I started learning more and applying it, almost too much. At the end of 2015 I decided to make a decision that changed my perspective for good. I decided that I wanted to lose weight. Little did I know what I thought was going to make me happy, made me feel so out of control. Anorexia was a demon, and it was a Demond that I listened to for three years. Even though that time was so dark I wouldn’t take it back. That experience is what has made me be so passionate about helping others. When I moved out on my own, I realized that I had to move on. There are bigger things in life than feeling so in control. After I realized that I had to change and put 100% effort into what I wanted to achieve in the long term instead of relieving urges of my eating disorder in the short term. In January 2019 I stumbled upon TRIAD. I walked in and immediately was welcomed by a couple of dudes. One of my first questions was about gaining weight. It was hard to ask but I felt comfort knowing these guys genuinely wanted to help. After that I just kept bothering them and I guess they liked me.

NASM Certified Nutrition Coach
Born and Raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma I’ve always been heavily involved in any and every sport I could play. As I got into high school I had fallen in love with my Xbox and slowly put on weight. After being tired all the time and not enjoying what I looked like I came across some YouTube videos and slowly started my journey into any and everything fitness. A few years later and an addiction to energy drinks, Alfonso reached out about Triad carrying my favorite energy drink. Since that day I’ve shopped with them for all my energy drink needs and slowly started to learn what makes them different. Come July of 2020 I had the opportunity to start my journey with the team and join Triad. I can’t be more thankful and excited for this Journey with Triad and Define Nutrition.

NASM Certified Personal Trainer & Fitness Nutrition SpecialistI grew up in Springfield, Mo where I played a plethora of different sports growing up and ultimately played Lacrosse at the collegiate level for Missouri State University. I found my passion for lifting and fitness through sports and performance improvement and in 2013 I made the move to helping people with own improvements my career path. This move allowed me to find my real passion in helping people. Over the years I have done many different forms of training for bodybuilding and powerlifting to Olympic lifting and CrossFit. My current training regimen is designed around Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with strength and explosiveness training to aid my BJJ. Working for companies like this with the highest standards of quality and science backed knowledge allow me to truly help people with improving their lives.
New Guy/Formulations Expert/Supplement ExpertBorn and raised in Norman, OK, I was constantly surrounded by athletics and competition. I started playing sports such as soccer and football at a very young age and played everything from basketball to competitive paintball. I found my love for track & field in Jr High and stuck with it through high school. I succeeded in track through the years and broke the school records for pole vault and the 4x200m relay at my high school, but I really found my passion when I found powerlifting. I started competing in powerlifting when I was 16 and have been hooked ever since. Powerlifting has taught me problem solving skills, hard work, and dedication. Through lifting I’ve found a passion for learning about supplements, how to formulate products, and how ingredients work in the body. I’ve always had a desire to help people, wether that be through coaching or helping people personally, and TRIAD & Define have blessed me with the opportunity to do that as a career. I plan on powerlifting, helping others, and working toward making the world a better place until the day I die.
