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.

My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I have attended one or more specialty courses
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I first started crossfit in 2010, but shortly after that had to have a microdiscectomy due to an extreme bulged disc to my L5-S1. Crossfit is one of the reasons my back it in good shape today and that I can move as well as I do.
