I am “Dr. Meathead,” a board-certified family physician with a focus in lifestyle and musculoskeletal medicine, nutrition, and corrective exercise. I currently serve as a medical officer in the US Navy, in addition to my work as a strength coach. I also happen to be a prior college football player who currently competes in strongman and the highland games (hence the “Meathead” part). I’ve dabbled in some powerlifting, triathlon, and obstacle racing in the past as well.
Weightlifting and medicine are my passions, and I want to show you all how closely connected the two can be. Just as I use my knowledge of functional anatomy and physiology with my athletes, I bring in all aspects of strength and conditioning to use in the treatment and prevention of disease. When I’m not seeing patients or putting in hours in my garage gym, I write articles and make videos for drmeathead.com, hang out with my beautiful wife and dogs, listen to live music and do pretty much anything that involves the outdoors.
SteadyMD allows me to dig deep with my patients, taking a proactive approach to care instead of spending money and time on reactionary measures. Let’s make my dream of a stronger, healthier world come true together.
