I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I was an extremely busy guy growing up. I was either sticking my head in the books, playing sports or trying to have a good time. One thing that remained consistent throughout my adolescence was my love of athletic competition, need to always learn, and drive to do something special with my life. I continued to learn and achieve after being accepted into and graduating from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. I had the opportunity to play football for Navy, meet some amazing people, and really develop and expand my love for and service to this country and other people as a whole.
After completing my undergraduate education I headed to flight school and earned my pilot wings as a Naval Aviator. I flew MH-60s for Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron Two One. I have flown 6 different model aircraft, both fixed and rotary wing, and accumulated over 1,000 hours of flight time.
Aside from my military service I pursue business ventures and continue to educate myself in entrepreneurial pursuits. My free time is spent working out, surfing, hanging with my dog and staying in touch with my family. I enjoy good times with my close friends. I hope to contribute my knowledge and leadership to the success of Bear Republic CrossFit. I truly believe in CrossFit methodology, community and business model so I think my passion will grow my success in business.
