1614   1440 

Most Proud Of:  The proudest moments in my life have been while serving in leadership positions in my professional life and through my involvement in sports. Most importantly, I am proud to have mentored, coached, guided, and supported hundreds of people to believe in themselves and to “never give up.” I am proud to be have married for 37+ years, have two amazing sons, and remain a top competitor at numerous endurance races throughout the world. On a daily basis I do my best to be a role model by showing the value of persistence, passion, positive self-talk, a healthy lifestyle, while building and investing in meaningful relationships with family, friends, and other health-minded people.  

Sports: The main sport I practice is triathlons that consist of swimming, bicycling, and running, combined with strength and conditioning routines. During the off-season or transition phase of my training, I enjoy alpine skiing, snowshoeing, surfing, hiking, and scuba diving.
