Nate played 8-years of professional football in both the National Football League and United Football League, before retiring after the 2011 season. He played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints, and Cincinnati Bengals. A self-described "NFL Grinder," Lawrie fought through numerous injuries throughout his pro-career which led him to rethink many of the products he was using to take care of his body - wanting tools that were more convenient to use without compromising functionality.
In 2015 Nate launched Brazyn Life. Brazyn Life is dedicated to helping people achieve their fitness and health goals through innovative, high-quality, and travel-ready recovery & fitness tools. Brazyn's launch product is The Morph Collapsible Foam Roller, a premium foam roller that folds flat making it easy to use at home, the office, the gym, or on the road.
He graduated from Yale University in 2004 with a degree in political science. He has completed NFL-sponsored executive education programs at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, University of Pennsylvania - Wharton, Northwestern University - Kellogg, and Babson College.
Born in Indianapolis, IN, he now resides in Santa Barabara, CA with his wife and two young children. His all-time record is 22-0-4 in dance offs.
"A deal would allow us to push growth, expand the product line, and have a strategic partner and their networks and relationships that will assist in accelerating our process."
