I love giving back to a sport that has been so very good to me. As a coach, it is my goal to bring out the best in every person I touch.

Four time Ironman finisher
Three time Ironman 70.3 World Championship qualifier/finisher
Long Course Duathlon World Championship qualifier/finisher
International Distance World Championship qualifier/finisher
Four time Boston Marathon qualifier/finisher 2002
5+ years of overall wins in various running events
Countless top ten age group finishes
