I’m originally from Florida where I grew up doing a lot of skateboarding and surfing. In my late twenties and early thirties, I was a very serious cyclist and raced both road and mountain bikes. My primary focus was mountain bikes and I had a successful amateur career winning the State Championships in Florida and qualifying for a pro license.

I was a roofing contractor for 25 years which helped keep me in pretty good shape. I’m also a vintage comic book dealer and own a business performing conservation and restoration work on vintage comic books. I’ve been married to my beautiful wife, Rachel for 14 years and we have a twelve-year old son.

After being sedentary for a couple years, I was looking for something different and interesting. About 5 years ago, I happened upon a new CrossFit Box in my hometown and was instantly hooked. I’ve always been a bit reserved, shy, and afraid to fail, but knowing what I can do at the box has helped my confidence in all walks of life. I love the community, the challenge and the results that CrossFit offers.

My QUEST: I want to be a great CrossFit coach, and keep improving my own level of fitness. I also want to be the best father and husband I can and to remain as healthy and fit as possible so Rachel and I can enjoy a retired life exploring and relaxing in the mountains and beaches around the world.
