I grew up in Arizona playing basketball, soccer, and baseball but at the age of 10, my passion for basketball began to blossom. Throughout my childhood I played AAU basketball year-round and looking back, those were some of the best memories I had as a kid. In high school I was elected to the Arizona 5A all-star game and pursued junior college basketball at Mesa Community College. Once that was over, I attended globo gyms and participated in pick-up basketball games like most post-career athletes do.
I told my friend who I grew up with playing ball with and who was a firefighter at the time, that I was bored with life and missed doing power cleans and weightlifting and missed the “team” atmosphere. He told me I should try CrossFit. I went home and googled ‘CrossFit’ and found a gym that was a mile away from my apartment… it was a sign. I had no idea what CrossFit was, so I went onto their website and scheduled my intro session. I really enjoyed the coaching, how they explained the methodology to me, and their generosity. Still not knowing exactly what CrossFit was at that time I signed up for a 3x per week membership and began my new athletic career!
I am married with a son named Elliott and he has the BIGGEST smile this world has ever seen. Along with our tiny house, we have 3 dogs and a cat. I am a big animal lover (humans too). Activities outside of the gym include: fishing, hunting, basketball, pickleball, and trail running.
Funny fact about myself… I can touch my nose with my tongue.
