I am married with 3 children and live on the Central California Coast. I have always been interested in fitness. In 2005 I started my training at the first Crossfit gym in Santa Cruz and had the good fortune to be surrounded by excellent trainers and a wonderful community. I competed in the 2007 and 2008 Crossfit Games when it was still a BBQ in Aromas.
