My wife and I have five children and twelve grandchildren. Family is a big deal with us. I am entering the twilight of my career and I look forward to spending more time with my grandchildren. I am an avid swimmer with long distance freestyle being my strength. I am a USMS member with the Mission Viejo Nadadores being my home team. I wear a BlueSeventy wetsuit and have two Nero competition suits. I have competed in 13 half ironmans including world championships in 2008 and 2009. I love competition and I enjoy the social aspect of competing and getting to know other athletes with the same passions I have. I provide good encouragement to teammates and friends.
