I was born on March 12, 1987 in Ann Arbor, MI. When I was five years old, I moved to Batavia, IL with my parents and younger brother, Ian. I attended Batavia High School, where I played football and ran track, and graduated in 2005. I attended the United States Naval Academy and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Quantitative Economics.
I began CrossFit when I was in college and was instantly hooked. It has played a significant role in my life since I did my first WOD. Fitness is very important to me because it allows me an avenue to channel stress and manage the rest of my life. I would not be where I am today without fitness. I am passionate about sharing my enthusiasm for fitness and healthy living with others and look forward to building a team and community of likeminded individuals.
