About Me

I’ve been a full-time professional coach for nearly 15 years, and an endurance athlete for much longer. I have a BS in Exercise Physiology from Syracuse University.  I have raced both on and off road at the elite level, finding the most pleasure and success off road at the Semi-Pro level. I have written training articles for various publications over the years as well.  Further, I am the head coach and general manager for CTS’s first regional center in North Carolina. Currently my own training focuses on being fit for training camps and being able to enjoy cookies without guilt! When I am not helping my athletes pursue their goals I enjoy time with my wife and two children playing in the mountains of WNC!


I believe in full-service coaching that delivers a lot more value than just a training plan and data analysis. Coaching is my full-time career and I provide every athlete with prompt, professional service.  What I enjoy most is that all my current athletes and hopefully future ones are partners with me in their training. We come to a mutual agreement to work together and then move forward with a whole and well rounded plan to achieve success!  I take great pride in all my athletes being extended family and always welcome them with open arms and a warm cup of espresso!
