I CREATED ALL THAT
I WANTED TO BE.
I grew up wanting to be a Monster Truck & Formula 1 Driver, a Marine Biologist, NFL Player, an Architect, Play in the World Cup and Save Every Animal on the planet. Nothing existed that had everything all in one place and more importantly affordable - now there is - LEMO!!

BE TRUE TO
Unconditional love is something I was fortunate enough to experience growing up. It provided a light through life that helped guide me. Inspiring me to share with others through exchange of energy, meaning conversation, or acts of kindness. In relation to the theme of my shoe, Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that gives off energy when light is absorbed through a process called photosynthesis. Lemo allows me to be a light. When others absorb it, they then share it through their own energy exchanges. In turn becoming a chain of well being starting with unconditional love, light, energy, and repeat.
THE UNIVERSE TENDS
TO UNFOLD AS IT SHOULD.
I am grateful for my supportive and loving family who have ALWAYS created an environment that pushed me to be my own advocate and supported my choices - the good and the bad. There came a very pinnacle moment in my professional career in which I could have continued on the path that I was on, but instead I remembered what my mom told me "honey, if you're not smiling when you make this decision then it's not the right one. It's simple." At that moment I took a risk and resigned from my current career path and joined forces with two of the most passionate, intelligent, and inspiring people I have ever met. It's the BEST decision I have ever made and to be a part of a team that is driven to create something that has never been done before is something I am so thankful for!
I CREATE TO
Creativity stems from the heart. It’s ignited by the mind. It’s fueled by my experiences, my thoughts, my dreams. It’s showcased through my hands. It’s executed by the forwardness and action in my legs and feet. It’s shared from my mouth through my words and breaths. It’s connected by the strength of my spirit and the evolving dynamic of my nature. Creativity is all of me.
I create to be created. I am created to create....

I EXIST TO FULFILL THE HIGHEST, TRUEST EXPRESSION OF MYSELF,
AND TO HELP OTHERS DO THE SAME.
I want to break barriers, and ultimately change the trajectory of people’s lives generationally through sport, business, and philanthropy. LEMO exists to serve others with excellence, pride, and unconditional love, and because I experienced this personally for 10 years, I will be a part of LEMO forever.
THE MEANING OF LIFE IS TO FIND YOUR GIFT. THE PURPOSE OF LIFE IS TO GIVE IT AWAY.
My fulfillment in life comes from seeing impact. I learn something new everyday at LEMO. Not only do I get a chance to create an impact here at LEMO, but my life is also impacted everyday. The community is family; from the kids, their families, the coaches, supporters and the staff. There is no other place in the world that empowers you to do ANYTHING, and then encourages you to give it back to someone else. A place that chooses you before I. As a father of 3 I am forever grateful for LEMO and the future it is creating for my kids. Giving them the opportunity to dream big and help others accomplish theirs as well.
GOOD FOOD. GOOD PEOPLE.
GOOD MUSIC. THAT'S IT.
I've never been loved by a group of people the way LEMO loves me. As soon as I was exposed to that high quality of love it became clear that this is where I belong. Without that love I would have never discovered my passion for food and leveraging that passion to elevate my culture. Now it's my responsibility to share that same love with the next generation.
AGE IS JUST A STATE OF MIND.
DON'T PUT LIMITS ON YOURSELF.
Helping others achieve their goals of being GREAT!! - That’s why LEMO!!
LEADERSHIP IS ABOUT MAKING OTHERS BETTER AS A RESULT OF YOUR PRESENCE AND MAKING SURE THAT IMPACT LASTS IN YOUR ABSENCE.
Until I set foot in LEMO, I hadn't experienced what it was like to be overwhelmed with such possibility. The space is filled with dynamic athletes, innovative business minds, and people dedicated to serving others in the pursuit of their dreams. There is no other place like LEMO, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!
YOU'RE ONLY A MISFIT UNTIL YOU FIND YOUR PURPOSE.
THEN YOU'RE A PERFECT FIT.
Too often in this world we have people we encounter that want to shave off our truth to make themselves feel more comfortable. At LEMO, David, Ali and the team not only help kids find their truths but encourage their walk (or uphill sprint) in it. Many people discuss what they can do to make a difference, they act on it. I view this team and this cause as family and will forever be a part of it in whatever capacity I can serve. LEMO is everything we wish we had as kids, as well as everything we never knew we needed.
