I am a Georgia boy living in and loving Alaska, especially the open water swimming. I am a sustainability-focused engineer, father of 4 and husband of 12 years. Running is my original endurance passion along with mountain biking but has led me to triathlon and an unexpected love of open water swimming!! I first started open water ocean swimming in Florida and have rekindled it now that I am here in Southeast Alaska in both the ocean and a local lake (the water here is a bit colder!). We have moved around in the last few years so my racing had taken a break of sorts but once we settled in here, I reengaged my tri coach and signed up for Ironman Canada 2020 (switched to IM California after it was cancelled twice – then IM Cali was cancelled so I deferred to IM Florida 2022) and joined a Masters Swimming program, while continuing to run and bike here locally. I also couldn’t resist signing up for IM Alaska 2022 and that turned out to be an awesome event! I took up some winter sports like cross-country skiing to complement my winter training in 2021/2022 before the final 6-month push to IM Alaska. I look forward to pushing myself in the lake this year to prep for Change Your Latitude 2023. I am super-psyched about competing this winter at IM Florida and then focusing on a longer open water swim here in Alaska at Change Your Latitude 2023.
