As a coach, I am striving to help my athletes reach their potential. As a teacher, I am striving to design optimal learning environments. As a scientist, I am striving to support strength and conditioning professionals. In all three cases, my overall goal is athlete/student/colleague development. My axiom is legacy. My favorite motto is “Heureux qui, comme Ulysse, a fait un bon voyage.”
