the WHY

I'm a Bulletproof-er who wants to join the team.  To me, passion is everything.  I'm a listener of Bulletproof Radio.  A cycler of the Bulletproof and Ketogenic diets.  A constant experimenter (bio-hacker in training if you will) of nutrition and fitness.  I look the part, talk the part, and offer a diverse set of experiences from sales management, to consulting, to entrepreneurialism, and extended world travel.  I take risks and think big.  I thrive in a fast-paced and self-directed environment.  Most importantly, I believe in the why of Bulletproof and my ability to make an impact.
