1. What has been your journey between your area of expertise and biohacking?

My journey started paradoxically with me losing my health completely. The quest for redemption and getting my health back fully was what got me into Biohacking. Without having any notion about the term, “biohacking” actually explained what I was doing all along. Today my primary focus and area of expertise is in the realm of total health optimization with a specialization in men’s high performance among many things.

2. What is your favorite quote?

There are many! But the most profound is “those who do not learn from history, are doomed to repeat it”. It can be applied to many things in life.

3. If there was only one thing you could share with the world, from your knowledge, what would it be?

That all the negative events like trauma, rejection, and loss, are really the most valuable of lessons anyone can experience and to be grateful for. Those are the fundamentals of real growth if you learn to use them in your favor. Be the alchemist!

4. What’s the most important value you hold yourself to?

To always speak my truth.

5. What is your favorite biohack?

Using different supplements for optimizing myself, and being in nature as much as possible, soaking up sunlight and grounding myself to mother earth.

6. What are some of your favorite hobbies?

Learning authentic knowledge and understanding the reality of the world around me. I also enjoy deep conversation and socializing with people who I really resonate with. Football is also great for blowing off steam.

7. What’s your favorite book and why?

My favorite book right now is “Outwitting The Devil” by Napoleon Hill.  It gives great insight into what darkness or evil really is all about, and by that, it gives you the opportunity to let go of fear and embrace the light.

8. What is your must-have biohacking item in your house?

My Bemer PEMF device is really something that I wouldn’t want to live without. It helps me speed up my recovery by increasing the blood flow with electromagnetic frequencies throughout my whole body.
