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 10 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. We have moved around in the last few years so my racing had taken a break of sorts but once we are settled in here last year, I reengaged my tri coach and signed up for Ironman Canada and joined Masters Swim Club while continuing to run and bike here locally. I am looking to take up some winter sports like cross-country skiing to complement my winter training in 2020/2021 before the final 6-month push to IM Canada starts in the spring. I look forward to pushing myself in the pool and on the road this winter. I am super-psyched about competing next summer and then sighting my next race.
