I’m originally from Iowa, but currently live and train in Golden, Colorado. My athletic background comes from my early soccer career. I was able to compete at a very competitive level and had the honor of being selected for the practice squad on the US Men’s U-20 Olympic team. After moving to San Francisco shortly after college, I picked up long distance running as a way to see more of the city on foot. Since starting, I’ve completed several ultramarathons ranging from 50 kilometers to 100 miles. I currently holds course records and podium placements across multiple distances. In addition to loving the endurance community, I enjoy progressive discussion on farm to table supply chain, environmental awareness, and rubbing Buddha’s belly any time I can for good luck.
