What brought you to Barefoot Tiger?
The ability to be independent and at the same time a part of a team that shares the same values I have when it comes to personal training. Values like teaching proper exercise techniques, working hard, being safe and keeping it FUN!
What is your favorite movie quote?

Being a self-proclaimed comic book geek, some of my favorite super heroes are The Incredible Hulk, Captain America and Superman.
What is something people would probably like to know about you?
Most of my friends I’m just simply “D”. My friends have described me as quiet, funny, loyal, passionate, reserved and thoughtful. I come from an art background and have been drawing since I can remember. I went to SVA where I studied cartooning/illustration. Although I don’t get to draw as often as I would like, I still try to do some creative projects, from making a t-shirt to designing logos.
