Born and raised in Boston, MA now residing in Iceland. My wife of 12 years is from Iceland and we have five children. (Yes Iceland, and yes 5 kids) I served 8 years in the United States Army, deployed twice (Albania and Iraq/Kuwait) Before being deployed to the middle east for two years, I worked as a environmental technician and wanted to learn more about the industry until my deployment.

Once my deployment was over, and moved to Iceland I ended up with Bechtel to help them build, Alcoa Fjarðáal. An aluminum smelter, where I have been working since 2007 once production started. During my time with Bechtel, I was persuaded to get certified as a Personal Trainer and give Bootcamp classes, because of my constant talk of fitness and my work outs, and at the same time I was introduced to Herbalife, and the network Industry, and I was hooked.

As I affiliated myself with Herbalfe, I was able to slowly build a small clientele by having Herbalife energy drinks for the participants in my Bootcamp classes, and my one-on-one individuals. The more I learned about network marketing, working form home, the more I wanted this kind of lifestyle. My time at Alcoa was wearing thin on me to the point where I was no longer happy, no longer having the passion to help my section when your constantly not given the opportunity to grow as an employee, and that feeling started to have an affect on the goals I wanted for myself and for my family. Something had to give. I was connecting with great people, but not putting in the effort because of not being motivated.

October 2013 I was let go, and the shroud was lifted from my eyes. I was overjoyed because I was able to put forth 100% to all of my endeavors. I enrolled in ISSA's Associates degree program, Exercise Science, adding a few more wellness companies to give my clients a variety in products.

I am a student, a stay at home dad who takes care of the kids, and the house. A budding independent business owner of various wellness/social companies, and I am working on 2 ultimate goals. Getting certified as a Judge for fitness events, and to host fitness events with Fitness Star International.

    Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

    1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

    2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

    The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!
