I was a collegiate football/soccer player that still loves the competitive edge. I am lucky to be the father of 3 amazing kids (son/daughter twins and their little sister). I own an independent wealth management firm that helps pay the bills. I began triathlon in 2009 on a dare from a fellow graduate student and have been hooked since. My coach and friends all tell me if I want to see who the competition is, just look in the mirror. Its true. I have grown in this sport and love the outcome. It doesn't matter if you are aspiring to complete and Ironman distance race or a local sprint, all that matters is taking the first step...and then each step after that until you're across the finish line. That's how I have approached triathlon and it has taken me to places that I never thought possible.
Outside the physical challenge, triathlon is a sport filled with amazing stories, people who have been transformed and the promise to leave a mark on everyone who participates. I love the social aspect/collaboration, the camaraderie, the competition, the positive impact on others lives, the feeling of belonging to something bigger and the opportunity to be a role model.
