As a former active duty Marine and current Coach of the Naval Academy Triathlon Team (3x Team National Champions), I can truly specialize in taking athletes to the next level and working with athletes trying to get it done in a tough weekly schedule. Many of my athletes are either current or former military. My coaching utilizes metrics for each sport to get the athlete to hone workouts and achieve agreed upon goals. I want sport to compliment your life; it should be fun.
I reside in Boulder, CO and my primary profession is coaching endurance athletes. I have been coaching at least part-time since 2006 and full-time since 2013. I work with my individual stable of athletes (triathletes, cyclists, and runners) and the US Naval Academy Triathlon Team. I have been the coach of the USNA Tri Team since 2008 and lead them to 3 Team National Championships, multiple team podiums, and over 40 All-American honors. I have successfully coached road and CX cyclists up to Cat 2.
I have competed in endurance sports since I was a youth when I started competing in National Junior Olympics for cross country and track. I ran through high school and college. At the Naval Academy, I lettered and was a middle-distance work horse. I was commissioned into the Marine Corps in 2000, becoming an Infantry Officer and eventually served in Operation Iraqi Freedom during the invasion in 2003. While a Marine, I competed in triathlon and running for the Marines and All-Armed Forces teams to include 2 world championships. I left the Marines in 2006 and spent six years racing as a professional triathlete. I also am an Ultraman Champion and have complete Ultraman Hawaii. On bikes, I am a RAAM team record holder and competed at a high level in ultra-cycling finishing Paris-Brest-Paris and winning THE508.
I am USAT Level I and Youth and Junior Certified and USAC Level II. Although, I do not think certifications are important, they do put me in good standing with our NGBs.
