Dallas was born and raised in the foothills of North Carolina where he graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in Human Biology. Falling into the social trap of partying and substance abuse, he eventually decided he needed to escape the old associations and try to build new positive presences in his life.
He moved to Orlando in 2015, met an honest woman he eventually married in 2018 and now calls his wife. He also met a mentor who introduced him to many positive resources such as powerful self-discipline books and speeches. From 2015 onward, Dallas has read countless books that focus on personal development. Most importantly, he found God again in 2015 through the medium of his wife. He later fully converted to Catholicism in 2021 and humbly speaking, does his best to be a devout and neighborly Christian. He is currently pursuing his Masters in Theology to continue to study and expand his knowledge in philosophy and empathy.
Dallas has been to many places all over the world and experienced a wide range of cultures. His wife is Colombian, and he visits Colombia and other regions in South America often having since learned Spanish. He has also lived in Barcelona, Spain for a year where he taught English to many students young and old. He holds a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) level 5 certificate. Other places of travel include Scotland, Italy, France, Morocco, Costa Rica, Portugal, Cuba and the Bahamas.
Professionally Dallas has held many various professions. Hes worked in the supplement industry, the education industry, the animal medicine field, the hospitality workforce and now the healthcare, specifically biohacking industry. He co-founded Biohackers Magazine, a company geared towards spreading the wealth of knowledge that comes from the biohacking and self-optimization community. He operates Biohackers Magazine as the Editor-in-Chief and the Chief Information Officer.
Dallas also writes creatively and published his first book, 'Eagle Instincts' in 2022. In addition, Dallas has written and continues to write essays on philosophical topics and questions facing the world today.
It should be noted that Dallas also goes by his middle name 'Gates'. He created Gates of Growth initially as a blog to share his thoughts on books and other inspiring materials with any who were interested. Now Gates of Growth operates as a platform for life coaching, as well as public access to the creative works of Gates (Dallas) himself. All his life, Dallas has had a humble talent of listening to and empathizing with others. The practice of Personal Development has only enhanced this skill to the point of mentorship and coaching.
Dallas lives in Orlando Florida with his wife and two children where he enjoys reading, writing, sports, and nature hikes in his free time.
