I’ve been competitive my entire life either with my older brother or in sports. I played every sport I could from tennis and golf to ice hockey and lacrosse, I even competed in some motorsports to include rock crawling. After college was over I enlisted in the Army and have spent the last 11 years broadening my worldview. During that time I’ve continued to compete in any type of competition I could find. I competed in CrossFit, cycling, triathlon, powerlifting, and running. Finally, I decided to make a big change and start focusing on endurance sports more than lifting and functional fitness events.
Besides the random competitions, and serving in the U.S. Army, I also run a non-profit which uses physical activity and community to combat post-traumatic stress and I’m currently finishing up my dissertation for a doctorate (Ed.D) in sport and performance psychology with a projected graduation date of Spring 2021.
