The role that nutrition plays in sports performance has intrigued me since I was a boy.  Could ‘Wheaties” really make champions?  Did a pre-game banana prevent muscle cramps?  Were protein powders needed for muscle growth?  Later in life, I became a registered dietitian, gained experience as a university sports nutritionist, and earned advanced degrees in nutrition and exercise physiology.  On the very good advice of a trusted mentor, I applied and was accepted for a post-doctoral research position at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, where I became a commissioned Army Officer (2000-2005), a research physiologist in the Thermal and Mountain Medicine Division (2000-2018), a heat and hydration subject matter expert for the Department of Defense (2006-2019), and Deputy Chief of the Biophysics and Biomedical Modeling Division (2018-2019).  Sports community and industry touchpoints, a restless curiosity, and an entrepreneurial spirit led me to leave federal service and create my own business – Sports Science Synergy, LLC.

Through SSS, I combine 20 years of diverse research and publishing experience and apply my knowledge of exercise, nutrition, and environmental physiology on a freelance basis.  To help individuals and companies achieve their goals, I provide advice, guidance, and analysis of research, products, projects, and programs.  I also offer unique and ready to integrate hydration management sports tech solutions and business partnership opportunities within sports beverage, apparel, wearables, fitness app, and closely related industries.
