Retired USAF, former High School swimmer turned Triathlete. Funny story, I hated working out for the 20 years I was active duty. The minute I retired I jumped head first into Mountain Biking with a group of guys I work with. Shortly after that I got hooked on Triathlon’s! I still MTB as much as possible but love to swim, bike and run just as much!

I completed the Inaugural Ironman Waco 140.6 last October with a time of 12:46:17 and am already looking forward to my next one. I had originally planned to race IM California but during a training run in March I broke my leg/ankle. This derailed my 2022 season and set me back on my swim, bike and run paces. Thankfully I am all healed up and working on getting my form and paces back, in hopes for a better race season on 2023.

I've also loved being in the Team FB group, being surrounded by a like minded super supportive group has made all the difference in both my races and recovery this year!

What's in store for me in the next few years: Im looking to race the Leadville 100 MTB race next year as my A race with sights on Norseman the following year or so, depending on how my season goes.

somewhere in there id like to qualify for the worlds, not to picky on it being in Hawaii or St George, I just want to experience being that awesome!

I’m an active member of my local Tri Club and participate in a lot of club activities/volunteering. I also volunteer a lot of hours to helping my son's High School Band look and sound amazing!

Ive set my goals big for the next few years and I am looking forward to returning as a 3rd year Team Infinit Member in 2023!!
