Outside of owning Cascade CrossFit, I am a firefighter for the Kirkland Fire Department and have been since February 2005. I am also the certified physical trainer for the Kirkland Fire Department. I have always had a passion for sports and fitness. I grew up playing soccer, cross country, wrestling, and tennis and now have a new found passion for pickleball!
I have also completed two marathons, the Seattle to Portland bicycle ride in one day, and a half ironman distance duathlon (bike/run). Through all this, I feel that CrossFit training has gotten me in the best shape I’ve ever been in and helped me feel my best as well. One of the things that I love the most about CrossFit is how you can get an awesome workout in just 20 minutes. The other is the community in this gym. In no other gym do you get to workout with and train with such an awesome group of people. It makes working out so much more fun and helps push you to continuously be better.
I mostly enjoy hanging as a family with Tenny and our two kids, Lyla and Skyler. Family is what is all about!
