About me

My wife Sharon and I moved to Lone Tree in 2003. Prior to moving to Lone Tree we had never lived at an address longer that about two years. The corporate merry-go-round had us moving all over the Southwest. We fell in love with Lone Tree from the first time we sort of stumbled into it in 2003 and have stayed put ever since

We especially like the ample green space, hiking trails, the Bluffs and how convenient the stores and malls are. Moreover, the quiet neighborhoods and well-maintained public facilities make for an ideal place to live.

Meteorologist-turned-health coach

You've never seen me on TV but I graduated from Penn State in 1984 with a bachelor's degree in meteorology. Yes, my childhood dreams were to be the Kathy Sabine or Mike Nelson of my community. Things didn't quite go that way, but I found a new passion.

My new passion

My passion in life now is helping busy 50- and 60-somethings kick the lifestyle habit of yo-yo dieting. As a Certified International Health Coach and a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I certainly have the education and knowledge to help others do just that. But that's not really what I rely on.

I rely on my personal experience of overcoming four decades of yo-yo diet frustrations by addressing something that very few people focus on: setpoint weight. You see, as it turns out, our bodies have sort of a predetermined body weight, called setpoint weight. And things like crash diets or gimmicky pills, potions and powders, don't address the setpoint weight. As such, yo-yo dieters might reset their body weight when they restrict calories, but it has no effect on their setpoint weight. So eventually, the weight returns.

Once I discovered how to lower my elevated setpoint weight, I permanently shed 60-pounds of visceral belly fat and did so without between-meal hunger, calorie-counting, cravings... More remarkable than the weight loss, I also completely reversed 10 chronic diseases and became prescription-free in the process. My doctor went from classifying me as “metabolic mess” to a “metabolic miracle”.

My company, Slimbo Jimbo Inc., helps others reset their setpoint weight and enjoy holistic health, wellness and weight-control success. My approach focuses on gradual and incremental lifestyle modifications. These gradual and incremental modifications will lead to radical results.
