Sup dudes! So I spent a couple of years in the United States Army where I had some of the best times (did not know it then) of my life. I was fortunate enough to spend all of my time in a small Recon/Sniper platoon with 20 of some of the weirdest but best dudes on the planet. As my time came to end I had no clue what was going to happen next in my life. I had 1 son and 1 more on the way and needed a job. During my year off after the Army I struggled to find my place in the world. I jumped from going back to my lacrosse roots and tried my hand at coaching a NCAA D3 team, where the head coach gave a HUGE helping hand. From there I tried my luck with firefighting and quickly learned that climbing roofs and fire burning the skin off me was NOT for me.

And I then had a friend tell me about being a Police Officer. Wasnt sure if this, knucklehead, who used to run from the cops could actually become one...This was where I made the greatest decision of my life and chose a path in life that would eventually change the course of my life and bring some the greatest folks I met (for the second time) back into my life.

I had a purpose.

I spent the better part of 7 years on night shift, street gooning with the best of the best. Gun Fights, Ambushed, Foot Chases, being tased by your partner, tasting the sweet sweet nectar of the pepper spray while fighting...The shit we live for! Well in the midst of all this Clanging & Bangin I had to get workouts in. This is where the idea of Battle Owl came from. Slamming energy drinks at 1, 2 or even 3 am, plus your supplements or pre-workouts would absolutely cause chaos on your insides and WRECK your sleep schedule into oblivion.

I decided to make to take the risk, to chase a dream.

My goal is to create products that are not just functionally great but taste amazing too!
