It is my first time sharing my bio with the world. As an IT professional, I reside in New Jersey, USA. I enjoy gossiping and being a part of every daily discussion (especially concerning football and health and fitness). Exercise and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are very meaningful to me. As a fitness and exercise enthusiast, I love writing articles and sharing them with people. The subject of fitness and diet has been a focus of my writing since 1999. Sharing my experiences with others is something I enjoy doing.
