About Me

I am currently the Director of Coaching for Carmichael Training Systems. I began coaching youth track and field when I was a teenager, and ever since then I have been hooked on making athletes perform at their best. I joined Carmichael Training Systems in 2001 to work with the best coaches in the industry. My life revolves around sport and the outdoors. If you venture out to the Rocky Mountains, you will be sure to find me running, cycling, camping or fishing somewhere


I deliver full service coaching for each of my athletes. Above all else, my philosophy is to care about the person first then develop the aerobic engine to its maximum. I also specialize in in-person coaching, one time consultations and speaking engagements. I coach a variety of athletes from the elite to the beginner, ultrarunners, cyclists, triathletes, and other endurance athletes of all types. I am also the author of Training Essentials for Ultrarunning, a complete training guide for ultrarunners of all abilities.


In my role as Director of Coaching, I play a part in all aspects of Carmichael Training Systems including coaching, group and private camps, Lactate Threshold and VO2 testing, bike fit, nutrition analysis, race day support and just about anything that can help an endurance athlete. I coach endurance athletes in all disciplines from running and cycling to triathlon and adventure racing. I am particularly interested in Ultra Marathon runners and maximizing their performance through training and nutrition.
