As a surfer and an outdoors enthusiast, I am all about pursuing what keeps me stoked, and living life to the fullest. I am also deeply passionate about health, wellness, and nutrition. What we put into our bodies is so important when it comes to energy levels, gut health, longevity, mental clarity, and overall well being. That is why I prioritize what I eat, as well as what I do not. I believe that our overall health can be vastly improved through adequate and simplified food consumption. In searching for the best convenient fuel sources, for surf trips, travels, and other adventures, I have been widely disappointed.
Unable to find something that checked all the boxes, I began making my own nutrition bars with clean, whole food ingredients. I took it a step further and included multiple amazingly beneficial adaptogenic foods, in the form of functional mushrooms. These powerful fungi have been a part of my diet for years, and I firmly believe in their ability to strengthen our physical and mental health.
Everyone wanted more of these “delicious mushroom bars.” With the confidence in knowing that I finally had the optimal fuel to power a healthy and active lifestyle, I founded Fringe, to share it with the world. Fringe Bars are a radically different alternative than other “protein bars” on the market. Not only are they rich, creamy, and absolutely delicious, they deliver functional health benefits to keep you out in the lineup longer and feeling great.
My goal is to empower you to live your life to the fullest, follow your passions, and keep charging through positive vibes and wholesome nutrition. Whether you are a surfer, van lifer, or lover of life in any form, I welcome you to join in on this journey, and find your Fringe! YEW!
As I went from doctor to doctor, searching for the root cause, the pain continued to become increasingly worse, until it essentially took over my life. Before I knew it, the active and adventurous life that I had known so well, was all but stripped away. Replaced with constant searing pain, desperation, and no answers. After trying every injection, intervention, and modality available, short of a spinal fusion, I was introduced to the field of mind body medicine. Skeptical at first, I dove into this relatively unknown (Fringe) world to learn more.
What I discovered was nothing short of life changing. I learned how real and powerful the mind-body connection is, how neuroplastic pain works, and about the process of neuroplasticity. The most important finding was that this process can be used to heal physical pain. Through practice with a few different techniques, it became very clear that my back pain was not the result of a physical ailment. But a protection response that had become hard wired into my nervous system. As I continued leaning inwards, getting vulnerable, and discovering outlets of self discovery, I began feeling profound positive change. For the first time in years, I experienced relief and a sense of empowerment. This is an ongoing journey to this day, but this mind-body approach, paired with two other natural remedies, have guided me back towards living the life that I love.
Getting back into the ocean and surfing as much as possible has proven to not only be healing, but provides unparalleled enjoyment and happiness. This reignited passion will be a part of my life as long as I live.
