Hello! My name is Jack, and I am a Performance Dietitian who specializes in nutrition counseling with a focus on sports performance, food literacy, and mental wellbeing. While I provide evidence-based recommendations to help athletes and active individuals perform at their highest level, my primary mission is to empower others to achieve long-term wellness by building a healthy relationship with food, body, and mind.

After combining my athletic background as a former collegiate soccer player and Ironman triathlete with years of formal education and professional experience in the field of nutrition, I have learned how to connect the dots between optimal performance and long-term health. And guess what? It begins in the kitchen. Through culinary nutrition and behavioral therapy, I have learned how to translate cutting-edge science using simple strategies and the power of nourishing food to develop personalized, sustainable solutions for clients.

On a personal note, I live in beautiful Denver, Colorado and spend most of my free time in one of two ways: experimenting in the kitchen or enjoying the great outdoors. When I’m not discovering new recipes, you can find me in the mountains rock climbing, skiing, or backpacking.

Education and Experience:

Credentialed as Registered Dietitian

Tactical Nutrition Team — Special Forces Group, Fort Carson Farm-to-Table Culinary Team — UCCS Food Next Door
