My Story

(a.k.a. how the stars aligned to make me so passionate about energy drinks)

My primary goal, right from the beginning, was to help people understand these products like I do, as if they were seeing these drinks through my green eyes.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of California San Diego and a master’s degree in food science and food biochemistry from the University of California Davis. I grew up without energy drinks and without coffee shops on every corner.

I hated the bitter taste of coffee and tea and learned to live without soda thanks to those years of wearing braces. In short, I learned how to make do without caffeine. And yet, I could not have balanced two part-time jobs as a full-time biochemistry major without the help of energy drinks.

When Monster Energy hit US markets, I had just started my advanced studies in nutrition and biochemistry. I heard the hype, I read the news stories about kids having energy drinks for breakfast, and I knew how and why energy drinks worked thanks to my college courses. I was immediately fascinated by these caffeinated products, and that’s when the dream to share my insight with others began.
