Bio: Attorney in Ankeny. Have served in many roles on the Board the TriRacers of Iowa, from President, to at large member.I became interested in Triathlons after growing bored with running about ten years ago. TriRacers has provide a good support network for starting with a sprint triathlon and working up to a full Ironman.

Career Highlight: Ironman Arizona with Greg Grandgeorge, Steve Cox and Jamie Cox. Was great to train with this group and to see Greg recover from his car accident a year earlier.

Why I Tri: I do Triathlon to keep healthy and it always gives me motivation to keep moving. With three different disciplines, it is hard to get bored with your exercise routine. You also get to know a great group of fellow athletes, which keeps the training fun.

“A” Race or Goal: TTT triathlon with a group of TriRacers in Ohio. We will be doing 4 triathlons in three days, ranging from a Sprint Triathlon to a 1/2 Ironman Triathlon.
