About Me

I fell in love with endurance sports during middle school when I began running and mountain biking.  Throughout high-school I ran xc/track, swam, and raced both road and mountain bikes.  After focusing on Road Racing with the Baylor Cycling Club for a couple of years, I began taking Triathlons seriously in college when I completed one with some friends.  During my time at Baylor University, where I majored in Exercise Physiology, I founded the Baylor Triathlon and began coaching our members.  After graduation I was hired as the first Head Coach in the programs history.  I continued to coach students through Sprint and Olympic distance races, while also coaching local adult athletes at the Ironman distance, and earning my USAT elite athlete license.


Customized and personal training plans for swimmer, cyclists, and runners.  Swim stroke and running stride analysis, along with  VO2/Lactate threshold testing for both running and cycling.  Bike fitting and power file analysis.  I believe the most important aspect of coaching amateur athletes is taking into account all of life’s other stressors.  I use my background in all 3 sports to develop personal plans whether my athlete is focusing on road cycling, mountain biking, running, or triathlon.


Developing triathletes from many different sporting backgrounds to achieve their goals in any distance, from sprint to Ironman.   I came to triathlon by competing in the three sports individually and have used my experience in road cycling, mountain biking, and track/xc running to coach athletes pursuing those endeavors.
