Hello, my name is Jonathan Octeus and I am the founder of “MoreThanAHoopersDiet.” On this website, we feature amazingly delicious, nutritious, family-friendly recipes made with organic ingredients

A little more about me, I am a Haitian American that was blessed with the opportunity to grow up in the beautiful multicultural city of Miami, Florida. A “Melting Pot” is an understatement when it comes to the lively environment I experienced growing up. Indulging myself into different cuisine from a huge array of cultures, helped me build a love for culinary arts that would shape what you see today. 

I grew up playing football from the age of 5-16. For a while, I thought that I was going to play in the NFL but that idea abruptly came to an end my 7th grade year when I was introduced to the game of basketball. From then on, my sites were on the NBA and living the basketball dream. Throughout the process I went to multiple universities where my adaptive characteristics were constantly challenged. Best thing to ever happen to my psyche. Being business minded since 3rd grade, where I would sell things from candy, chips, t-shirts, repaired phones, the list goes on and on through high school, college, and post grad life.


I am a Co-Owner in a Concierge Service based out of Miami (Jovial Playground), I am also the Owner and Founder of Two Swords Sake. All of those business are great but none of them fuel my passion for cooking, food, and helping the less fortunate like MoreThanAHoopersDiet does! 

My whole life, I always knew that my life purpose would present itself in the very things that I love most. My goal is to aid my people the best way I know how. Who are my people you ask? The less fortunate are my people. The less fortunate are your people. We as a human race have the responsibility to take care, LOVE, and uplift one another.


So through MoreThanHoopersDiet, WE will feed millions

Thank you for stopping by and learning more about me. Feel free to contact me with any comments or questions.
