Anyone who knows you knows you’re a huge Marvel fan—so, who is your favorite character and why?

Easy—Steve Rogers (AKA Captain America)—but I wasn’t always a huge fan. My fanboy-ness began when I entered a contest at Baskin Robbins (mint chocolate chip ice cream for life) around the time “The First Avenger” came out; I won tickets to the Comic-Con showings of the movie. The showing was more-or-less a mini premiere at a theater run by Comic-Con. While I was in line at the event, a woman walked up to our section and pulled my group to where she brought us into the press theater as seat fillers. Next thing I know Chris Evans, Captain America himself, walks in! He gave a speech and gave me a high five on the way out, and I’ve been a huge fan ever since.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

I would love to go to Ireland because that is where my family is from. To experience a different country and be able to explore the beauty of my homeland, preferably in the summer, would be incredible.

What’s something about you that might surprise people?

Something that may be surprising is that I’m a Black Belt—I trained in Martial Arts for 14 years and taught for 2 years. When I was in the third grade I wanted a sword for classes and my mom agreed, but only if I won a tournament (she never thought I would). To her disbelief, I won and she had to buy me a sword. I still have that trophy to this day.

If you could wake up and magically be the best in one type of sport—what sport would it be?

I love cars, so I would want to be the best at F1 racing. Traveling the world during the F1 World Circuit would be thrilling. McLaren F1 racing team—call me!

What’s your favorite workout right now?

I don’t have a specific workout, but I am a big fan of CrossFit. I have been doing it for around seven years and every workout is different. To me, working out solo is boring; so I love to work out in a class and push myself to get a better time or heavier lift than my friends.

How do you incorporate CarnoSyn® into your day-to-day life?

I take 3.2g of SR CarnoSyn® every day. I also make sure my pre-workouts contain at least 1.6g of CarnoSyn® beta-alanine per serving.

What do you enjoy most about working for CarnoSyn® Brands?

For me, I enjoy the variety of work I get to do. My position allows me to have hands in many different things. From business card design, Google Analytics, social media, to filming and editing videos. Also, being a part of a great team helps me enjoy my work.
