Thanks for visiting my Amazon.com "Author Central" page.
I am an exercise physiologist, nutritional biochemist, and entrepreneur who helps people to Look, Feel, and Perform at their peak potential. My MS is in Exercise Science from UMass-Amherst, my PhD is in Nutritional Biochemistry from Rutgers, and I've studied entrepreneurship (EMP) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
I taught Nutrition and ran the Nutrition Clinic at the Univ of Utah for about 5 years - where I developed a full-semester course on dietary supplements and natural products (because Utah is sort of the "silicon valley" of nutrition products).
I am also the Executive Producer of the documentary film about America's obesity epidemic, Killer At Large, which has won a number of "best documentary" awards on the film festival circuit and has been featured within Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" initiative to fight childhood obesity (as part of the "Chef's Move to School's" outreach program)
I've written 7 books so far:
-2 textbooks on dietary supplements (carried in most libraries)
-3 books about stress/health (the "Cortisol Connection" series)
-1 book about reducing pain/stiffness naturally with supplements, diet, exercise, stretching, etc (Natural Solutions for Pain Free Living)
- 1 children's book called Springtime Robins
-The NEW book, The Secret of Vigor, is my best one yet...
In addition to my writing projects, my "day job" is running a research and development company (GLH Nutrition) that educates consumers about dietary supplements (via the SupplementWatch website at www.supplementwatch.com) and improve endurance performance (via Wicked Fast Sports Nutrition at www.WickedFastSportsNutrition.com).
I also train for Ultramarathons and Ironman triathlons. I'm an avid reader (go figure) and love my Kindle.
