Co-Owner & Coach


When did you start CrossFit?

I started in February of 2011 and have never looked prior.  Prior to CrossFit I wasn’t one for “working out”, but was always very active in sports.

How long have you been coaching/instructing?

I’ve been coaching since November of 2016 and absolutely love it.  My favorite movements to coach are the snatch and the clean & jerk.

What’s your favorite WOD or movement?

My favorite movement is definitely the snatch, but I also love any long, grueling workout with farmer’s carries, walking lunges, etc.  Anything with a partner or team is pretty great!

Outside of working out, what is your favorite hobby/interest?

I love craft beer and brew my own in my free time.  I also obsess over sand volleyball and play in many volleyball leagues in our local area.

Favorite sports team:

The Cincinnati Reds and the Indiana University Hoosiers!

Tell us one interesting thing about yourself:

Shortly after graduating from IU I moved to Africa and lived in Mali while serving in the Peace Corps.  I’ve also been on multiple trips to Honduras to help out at orphanages with construction projects. These are some of the most rewarding experiences of my life!
