Born and raised in Eastern Washington, playing typical youth sports(football, basketball and baseball) growing up. I have spent most of my adult life raising my three children and coaching high school basketball. I also have two step children and 7 grandchildren. My wife of eight years is my best friend, business partner and the significant influence on my success with CrossFit. When I am not coaching classes or working out I am fulfilling my work responsibilities as Vice President of Operations for Sandvik Special Metals, producing aerospace hydraulic tubing.
