A life long gastronome and once corporate executive chef, I have launched, ran and redeveloped restaurants and food-service programs in Nevada, California, Iowa, South Dakota and Minnesota. I have cooked for many elite figures such as Madeline Albright, Micheal Pollan, Arun Gandhi, Wailin’ Jennys, the King and Queen of Norway and Five for Fighting, along with independent contracting for the bullet proof executive, Dave Asprey and the elite PrimalHacker, Thaddeus Owens!
In 2011, I retired from his executive chef role and ditched “the corporate lifestyle” to pursue a journey in self improvement, emotionally and physically leading to what I call BEING|HUMAN|OPTIMIZATION|COACHING (and shortly after, training many others who sought him out). The study of self improvement through control of his environment, nutrition, and functional fitness. Ibegan racing for the first time with this new-found energy, strength and passion, and began to consistently win national obstacle course races and competitions. Quickly becoming a public figure and personality for Paleo nutrition and ancestral health.
In 2016 I designed and launched GAS-P, Gastronomic Paleo and Beguilement to bring more awareness and accessibility to ancestral nutrition, providing in home culinary and retreat experiences centered on local farm to fork, foraged and seasonal eating aligning with our genetics. Using biohacking ideology and cooking practices I call
“the Low-Impact method” to improve the quality of the food and it’s availability.
There are four pinnacle pillars I believe each person can begin to implement independently then together to create massive life altering impact. The frame of BHOC is a study in optimizing our environment, resiliency, nutrition and movement. All Humans have a primal instinct which allows them to recognize patterns of behavior and movement, it’s his goal to help them tap this primal identity into BEING|HUMAN.
Just a quote that resonates.
Tapping your primal identity begins with a place of quite, pain and or longing for change. BEING|HUMAN starts here…
”Close your mouth,
block off your senses,
blunt your sharpness,
untie your knots,
soften your glare,
settle your dust.
This is the primal identity.”
