I have always been involved in sports from baseball, tennis and soccer as a child, to surfing, skateboarding and volleyball as an adult. When my professional career as an airline pilot brought me to the Memphis area in 2006, I became involved and quite passionate with the sport of triathlon. This passion eventually led me to becoming a multisport coach. Having continually evolved my ability as an individual athlete while working as an airline pilot, a dedicated husband, a father and coach, I certainly understand the realities of mixing training with everyday life.
I have worked with over 30 athletes on building individual training schedules for races from 5ks to full iron-distance triathlons over the past five years. My vision has always been to help these athletes increase their skills, fitness, overall race performance and moving them forward to reach their goals. For some, that has been successfully stepping up in race distance or reaching a personal best, but for most it has been moving them from “back-of-the-pack” to “mid-pack”, “mid-pack” to “front-of-the-pack”, or even to the podium at USAT Nationals. I have also worked numerous camps and seminars and individually with athletes on their swim, bike or run skills.
