Off-Day ActivityResting and playing with my kids.

I am married to my college sweetheart for 15 years now and we have five kids, four girls and one boy (who is the true middle child) ages 14,12,9,7,4. And just recently a new dog ( a yellow Labrador named Winnie). I am lucky that they support my triathlon life and I’m happy that I can be an example to them.

I started in tri’s with a local tri for fun and the tri bug hit hard. Since 2012 I have been doing triathlons from local races to Ironmans. I’ve complete a number of great tri venues including the LA tri, Escape from Alcatraz (before the price hike), Wildflower and much more. I’ve done a few Ironman 70.3’s and so far I have completed 4 Ironmans with my longterm goal of completing 12 to enter the Legacy Lottery for Kona.
I have been an Ironman All World Athlete-Bronze 2015 and I think I will have enough points by the end of this year to earn that distinction again. I’ve also qualified and raced in the Xterra US National Championships 2015.

I currently work as a Physician Assistant in Orthopedics and my focus is Sports Medicine. This also helps me understand my coach when we talk about current trends in triathlon performance.
