If there is anything in my life that has remained constant, it has been my passion for health and nutrition. I have been intrigued by these fields for as far back as I can remember. In high school, I can recall the mocking of my buddies by being the first guy to enroll in cooking class that was traditionally all girls. In 12th grade, I confidently told my obese football coach that we were losing so many games because everyone was scarfing down donuts before games leading to sugar crashes and that we needed to have a good nutrition talk. But despite my interests in biology, chemistry and health, I ended up with degrees in Computer Science and Computer Engineering, two scientific fields I was good at, but not necessarily excited about.
