That's me on the left! In July 2020, I was diagnosed with an unspecified eating disorder, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder after battling in silence for more than 15 years. I had been blinded by the stigmas, stereotypes, and diet culture. I didn't think it could happen to me. Guys don't battle eating disorders, right?! Further, I thought I was just doing the right thing by eating healthy. However, my pursuit for physical perfection came at the cost of my mental, emotional, and social well-being. In fact, it nearly cost me my life.

I'm on a mission to:

  • ELEVATE awareness and empower others to get the help they deserve.


  • CONFRONT the stigma and show young men that there is strength in vulnerability.


  • ILLUSTRATE the lived experience to equip the next generation of mental health professionals.  

  • CHANGE the narrative around eating disorders and mental health.
