I am originally from California but was raised in the great state of Missouri. I have two wonderful and beautiful daughters. My daughters are my life! I have always enjoyed sports playing baseball, soccer and football as a kid and then focusing on soccer through high school. I stayed in shape after high school and joined the Army in 2005. My fitness at that point included running, push-ups and sit-ups to make sure that I stayed in shape for the Army PT test. I first tried Crossfit in 2011 as a way to get ready for a military school I was preparing for. It worked so well that I stayed with it ever since because it keeps me in shape for whatever mission I might find myself facing in my military career or civilian job. I completed my CF-Level 1 in July of 2015 and have a passion for helping others reach their fitness goals whether that is being a competitor, getting into shape for health reasons, being able to enjoy a more active lifestyle, or be a stronger, faster and harder to kill military/law enforcement type.
