Swimming has been a part of my life ever since I taught himself to swim at age four. For most of my swimming career I was a pool swimmer focusing on sprints and middle-distance stroke events. I have been competing in open water swims since 1991, initially focused on shorter races such as the La Jolla Rough Water Swim. Over the last 8 years I have added longer races to my calendar. In 2013 I swam my first channel, the 17.5 mile Ederle Swim, between New York City and New Jersey. When I landed on the Sandy Hook Beach, I figured the Ederle would be my last marathon swim but that was not to be. 49 marathon swims later I keep signing up for the insane swims. I have completed two legs of the Marathon Swimming Triple Crown (Manhattan Island and the Catalina Channel) and scheduled to attempt the English Channel in 2023.
