About Me

In 1999, I fell into a rabbit hole called Triathlon and I’ve never wanted to climb out.  I’ve competed in nearly every multisport distance including Ironman, Xterra and Duathlon, highlighted by a trip to World Championships in Duathlon in 2002.  Along with multisport events, I’ve run over fifteen marathons, raced bikes on and off road, and occasionally hopped in on a Masters swim meet or two.  As a coach since 2005, I’ve seen every type of athlete compete and succeed in the same sports that I’ve enjoyed for so long.  I’m currently entering my tenth season as the head coach of the University of Southern California Triathlon Club where we are coming off a 12th place national finish last year.  When I’m not coaching, I train to be able to keep up with my wife on the road and my two year old daughter on the playground.


With my breadth of athletic and coaching experience, I can help any athlete achieve any level of goal and enjoy the ride too.  Every athlete receives individual attention and a plan that balances life with training.  Communication and feedback are integral to my coaching approach and I strive to give the athlete the best possible experience with an honest approach to achieving goals.  Because I’ve been immersed in the triathlon and multisport world for over fifteen years, I’ve seen the evolution of the sport and I know what it takes to stay ahead of the pack when it comes to racing and training.
