Bio

Worked as a personal Trainer and server before joining the Coast Guard in 2003. Separated from the Coast Guard in 2011 and now work at TRX headquarters in San Francisco CA. I am the Retail Account Manager/First Responder National Sales Manager/Marketing Manager for the Government Segment. I live in Novato California with my wife and my two boys. I pretty much love any outdoor activity that can be done.
