I pride myself in helping others understand their own bodies and on being able to communicate nutritional science in an understandable way. I am fascinated with nutrition, martial arts, strength and conditioning, and the interplay between all of these areas.
My formal nutrition and exercise science studies span 10 years but my interest extends far beyond this. Throughout my university life I have trained, coached and competed (very often) whilst completing a degree in health science (majoring in nutrition & exercise science); achieving 1st class honours for my research thesis in molecular nutrition, as well as a master’s degree in dietetics.
I hold both Accredited Sports Dietitian and Accredited Practising Dietitian status with Sports Dietitians Australia and the Dietitians Association of Australia respectively. To further fuel my personal and professional attributes, I am currently pursuing my PhD, focusing on weight cutting techniques and body composition of combat sport athletes.
I also routinely work with Olympians, BJJ athletes, MMA fighters, Boxers, Judo players and even a world championship kickboxer. Furthermore I am able to exchange ideas with leading sports scientists from around the world and I act as reviewer for combat sports, nutrition and exercise science articles for multiple peer reviewed scientific journals.
