Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Renton, Washington, a suburb of Seattle. I spent the first 38 years of my life there. I met my wife Angie while on a golf vacation in Arizona. She moved up to Washington with me for 7 years and we had 2 kids (Brodie & Avery). We decided to move our family to Arizona to raise our kids where they could grow up around lots of family!
What are your hobbies (besides CrossFit)?
Going on Vacation with Angie and the kids, Hunting, Camping and hanging out with friends.
What is your occupation?
I’m a Captain with the Phoenix Fire Department
How were you first introduced to CrossFit?
In Washington I worked for the Redmond Fire Department in about 2007 they went all in on crossfit Pro and sent several guys to get their level 1 certification and bought equipment for every station.
What is your favorite WOD/movement?
Love the Bike and Rower!
What is your least favorite WOD/movement?
What CrossFit accomplishment are you most proud of?
Longevity, Angie and I have been at blade for just over 9 years. I go every weekday that I’m off and never WOD dodge. I believe my relationship with Angie is what it is because of CrossFit. It’s something we have in common, we daily see healthy like minded people to help us keep on track. Not to mention all our best friends have come from the gym.
What is your favorite song to WOD to?
It’s going down for real ( Flo Rida). I also love old school rap with Anthony!
What would you like to accomplish next through CrossFit?
I would like to work on my stamina and flexibility.
