I am a retired Navy Veteran who proudly served just over 23 years. I was always an avid athlete and competitor, but after leaving active duty triathlon became my passion. I train 10-15 hours a week and compete in 4-5 events every year. I suffered a stroke in June of 2021, and did a half Ironman length triathlon three months later. I’ve used my fitness and story to be an inspiration to others who may have had serious health setbacks.
