About me

Location Houston, TX, United States
Introduction I'm a West Point Grad, ex-Army communications officer, who is currently working as a project manager in the Oil & Gas industry. With a degree in physics, I'm a natural skeptic with a tendency to question "common knowledge" and look for the underlying evidence and facts. This is the mindset with which I've approached triathlon. I didn't get into endurance sports until later in my life but once my wife introduced me to triathlon at the age of 25, I became immediately hooked. Training, racing and learning about both have been a primary theme in my life ever since. With a young son born in 2012, a wife who works full time and a job that takes 12 hours of my day, life is busy....and I wouldn't have it any other way!
