He is also certified in Shoulder Functional Assessment from the Motion Palpation Institute, Sole Supports (Biomechanics and Orthotics Certification), and in LightForce Laser Therapy.

Beyond that he has served on multiple volleyball, football, recreation dodge ball teams, and running teams. Staying active is important to him and he looks forward to participating in active sport teams here in Nashville.
