Age : 36
Training Experience : 15

Began my fitness journey over 15 years ago training neighborhood kids over the summers to prepare for sports. This evolved into a lifelong curiosity of all the challenges physically the body could endure. My curiosity took me into the Special Operations community to test my training habits and physical preparedness where I have spent the last 13years serving(current). This ultimately led me to the highly competitive sport of CrossFit. I now use this experience to help people physically but most importantly mentally to reach there goals.

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas

Truly my passion lies in competition, and human movement in all forms.  I have enjoyed a life full of physical pursuits ranging from working as a park ranger, military service, to practicing martial arts.  After the military I decided to formally pursue my passion by attending UT Austin's Kinesiology program.  While at UT I worked at the campus rec center, outdoor department, fitness assessment lab, and worked as a personal trainer.  It wasn't until after college that I attended my first Crossfit class in 2010 and was instantly hooked.  After experiencing the benefits of function fitness first hand, I started coaching in 2011 and never looked back.  Now I enjoy helping clients along their path to better qualities of life achieved through higher levels of fitness.

      “HARD WORK BEATS TALENT WHEN TALENT DOESN’T WORK HARD.” This adage is the crux of what has always drawn me to training and athletics. Admittedly awkward on land in my youth, I took to the pool. Competitive swimming carried me through high school, college, and eventually to my first coaching job. In pursuit of a new athletic focus after my swimming career ended, I spent time training in a number of different disciplines (marathons, yoga, triathlons, bro lifting, group fitness, spinning, etc). But it wasn’t until I encountered the intensity, community, challenge and empowerment of CrossFit that I found something to fill the fitness and competition spaces in my life. When I started CrossFit, I was a working as a full-time swim coach and I quickly starting to incorporate functional training into our dryland workouts. When I moved to Houston to teach high school English and coach swimming, CrossFit provided an instant community of like-minded athletes with whom I could connect. By the time I moved back to Austin, my training was important enough to me that finding a Box a top priority. I trained at RedSide for a year before joining the staff, and in that time I developed a deep love for the people and energy this space draws. I am so grateful to be able to spend my days working with dedicated, disciplined, goal-oriented people. Working at RedSide and owning Muladhara Yoga is a truly a dream come true for me.
