I spent my younger days chasing the black line up and down the pool. After my swim program at Nebraska was cut, I transitioned into triathlons. 2 years later, I won the 2004 Collegiate National Championship, and that spurred me on to step into the elite ranks of triathlon.
I have represented the USA at the 2004 U/23 World Championships, am a 3x member of the FISU World University Games USA Triathlon Team, a 2011 ITU Triathlon World Championship Team USA member and to date have raced in over 25 countries . Most of my career I have spent travelling on the international ITU triathlon circuit, but I have raced French Grand Prix, 70.3 and Olympic distance triathlon as well.
I currently reside in Fort Worth with my wife Lauren, who is also a professional triathlete. We are super fortunate to pursue our passion of triathlon and do it together. 2013 has seen some changes for me in my schedule as I have featured non-draft Olympic distance racing as the focus for 2013. Qualifying for the Hyvee 5150 Championship was the big goal for 2013 and that box has been ticked!
