I overcame many obstacles, roadblocks, and heartaches to discover the truth. What changed first was my heart, then my mind, and finally, my body. In this process, I learned the true meaning of what a real man is. It’s taken me years of extensive study, refinement, and leading other men to identify three key areas and ten distinct disciplines as guiding principles to live this life. I’m here to help you discover the same freeing knowledge for a successful and fulfilling life.
The show, books, resources and retreat were all created to provide you with in-depth, faith-based approaches to transform your life and the lives of others. I promise to provide you with challenging, honest, sound and clear to follow approaches for your success.
Over the years, I’ve served in various leadership roles and responsibilities at my local church, including that of Deacon. I currently serve as Director of Men’s Small Groups at Christ Fellowship in Palmetto Bay with an emphasis on discipleship. Also, as a trained Christian Leadership & Business Coach, I enjoy working with men to help them reach their full potential as leaders in their personal and professional lives.
In addition to this, I founded and am Chief Marketing Officer of Pumped, Inc., a brand development and digital marketing firm and consult as an independent CMO. Over the past 18 years, I’ve helped build and launch over 100+ businesses and brands. Along the way, I’ve been recognized with many awards and honored to share my experiences at conferences, seminars, and leading industry events, including news media outlets.
I met Carlos in 2019 and expressed a vision to start a family small group to take families camping, and share the word of God. From that, he gave me his vision for Faith Fire Fury. Part of this vision included a retreat for men to participate in fellowship as well as a brotherhood as they seek to walk with Christ. A few months later we created the foundations for the FX3™ Experience.
I stand here today a changed man, a better husband, a loving father, and a better friend. Like a lot of men, we can get lost in our journey, but in 2007 I found my way back to God and I got baptized. I dedicate my new life to my friend and son Joshua Loria. I saw him as a boy accepting Christ as his savior, and I knew I could not let him go about this alone.
I knew I had to be a leader and example for him. Since then I have volunteered in Student Ministry, Community Outreach, missions and the America Red Cross. I have been blessed to be given the opportunity to work alongside some amazing followers of God.
