Ran track and cross country in high school in Petersburg, IL.  After graduating in 2004 I enlisted in the US Navy where I served a total of 8 years. During my time I worked in special operations as a Naval Aircrewman.  Doing this I completely fell off the radar in terms of competitive racing and speed in general.

I moved to the Kansas City area in July of 2014 where slowly but surely I am getting my speed that I once possessed in high school back and racing competitively again.

As you can see I don’t have nearly the times as some of the other athletes YET! But it will come.  I am just getting started so stay tuned!
