Born and raised in Santa Barbara, California. I’ve always been into spending time outside and being active. I was on swim team with Santa Barbara Swim Club starting in elementary school and continuing into high school. I began biking by riding my bike to swim practice each day. In high school, in addition to water polo and swimming, I joined a junior bike team where I raced mountain and road bikes and developed a passion for cycling.
After high school, I stopped endurance sports until I was introduced to triathlon just after college. I raced a few 70.3 events with mixed success. I then focused more on running for fun and limited racing in order to focus on work and family. After qualifying for Boston at the 2013 Big Sur Marathon, I got re-energized toward racing to my potential and decided to sign up for an Ironman!
I now live in Monterey, CA with my wife Camille and 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son. I am lucky enough to work from home, which is a great way to have a quality life with my family while still training for endurance events.
Outside of training, I spend a lot of time reading and trying to learn about health and fitness. I also love food (and wine) and spend most of my day eating, or thinking about what I’m going to eat next.
