San Diego, CA

I’m a first year ambassador and live in San Diego, CA with my wife and two kids, two pugs and two chickens.

I have been an educator for the past 12 years. I only got involved in triathlons in 2013 to raise money for the C.A.F. charity, and have been hooked on triathlons ever since. Last year, I completed my second 140.6 (again at IRONMAN Arizona) and a 285 mile triathlon, along with another four 70.3’s.  It was a tiring but rewarding year; I hope 2017 will be another solid year of racing and reaching goals.

Since 2015, I have loved being involved with Smile Train Team EMPOWER and the experiences I have had with them in training for and completing IRONMAN Arizona. They are an incredible organization made up of great people doing great things. I am looking forward to working with more talented people, creating more smiles for those less fortunate, and I am excited to support others on their journey to success.

Bring on 2017!
