Born, raised, and have lived in the Pacific Northwest. Tacoma, Washington has been home for me, my wife Kelly, and two fine gentlemen Jeff and Ben who are our adult children. For the past 3-years I have had the pleasure of training at Crossfit Tacoma (Tacoma Strength), which includes Northwest Kettlebell. A football injury from way back in the 1970's caused me to give up distance running some years ago, and thankfully I found Crossfit which has allowed me to overcome. My athletic background consists of high school wrestling and baseball plus one year of college football. In the years since, I have enjoyed various competitive activities including triathlons, recreational sports, and running. I enjoy the challenges and camaraderie of Crossfit!
