"I've always been into health and fitness. Growing up in an active environment, I've enjoyed a variety of sports including rugby, cricket, karate, bodybuilding (2 national titles), running, rock climbing and Brazilian Jujitsu. I'm also a very proud father and like to hang out with my daughter whenever possible. My passion is family and friends and I love to be around them whenever possible especially when sharing the outdoors or a good meal."
