Endurance sports have been a part of my life since a very young age. Yet, along side my pursuit as an athlete, perhaps my greatest passion has been in helping teach, encourage, and empower others to realize their own potential. My number one goal as a coach is for my athletes to achieve their best, while having a fun and healthy journey to get there.
I began to develop my coaching while a student at Michigan State, where I studied Exercise Physiology and served as a volunteer head coach of the triathlon team from 2007-2009. Having the fortune of working with many dedicated and talented athletes, I was able to help lead the team to their best National Championship finishes in the history of the program. (10-th 2007, 10th-2008, 7th-2009, with Men's overall finishes of 2nd in 2007 and 5th in 2009).
Since then, I have become the first official head coach of the Michigan State team and privately have had the opportunity to work with a multitude of athletes and learn from some of the top triathlon, swim, and run coaches in the country. Currently I work with a large range of athletes, from youth to grand master and beginner to All-American. I would love to apply my knowledge and experience to help you reach your goals!
