I am a dad of a 1 year old and 3 year old who both love being outside as much as dad and mom. I grew up a swimmer and loved mountain biking so took up triathlon after college when I didn't do anything sans "college" sports that made it so I came in at 175lbs and left at 250lbs. I was always a distance person, not the fastest but faster than most. Triathlon has been a perfect fit and 18yr commitment. I've qualified for Kona 6 times, racing there 3 times, the last with a VI athlete who I guided to the IM WR. I have competed in 10+ 70.3 world championships, XTerra worlds and LT100 MTB race. I am an active member and volunteer coach for Rocky Mt. Triathlon Club. I balance family and an active lifestyle with managing a portfolio of small businesses and coaching exec leaders.
