Causes I care about

Many but mostly sexual assault and domestic violence victims as it’s a cause close to my heart and it happened to family members.

Do you collect anything?

Yes, charming tails 😂

What is your most unusual talent?

Making up my own recipes.

What is the scariest thing you have ever done?

Quit my job and take off to a road trip on my own for several months.

Why do you like working with Gnarly?

Because Gnarly is all about educating athletes how to supplement correctly, they support great causes and they have amazing products.

Outside of your respective sport, what are you most proud of?

Leaving poverty with my mother and coming to a country in search of the AMERICAN DREAM, not speaking any English or knowing anyone.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Rice and Beans.

Who is your hero? Why?

My mother. She fought to change our lives even if that meant leaving my brothers in another country.

Any advice for aspiring athletes?

Whatever you do, make sure you love it. It’s easier to commit and train when you enjoy it.

I recommend…

Gnarly Vegan Vanilla protein. C’mon it tastes like dessert. It’s smooth, delicious and it makes it so easy to meet my daily protein intake. Gnarly Greens. They’re the best thing to add to my morning water. They’re sweet and taste so good and I’m getting all those nutrients.
