Husband, father of 2 great and athletic kids, Attorney running my own firm. My wife and son (15 years old) crossfit as well. Played football and ran track in high school where I was a sprinter and threw the javelin. Was a gym rat for years doing the typical chest, arms, shoulders, back and legs routine. At one point I could bench 300 lbs but probably couldn't run a mile. Then my legal career got very hectic and I put on weight and stopped working out at all. I found crossfit in 2009 where I trained for about 2 months at the home of Tanya (2009 champ) and Josh Wager. I stopped for various reasons then went back in January of 2011 and have never stopped. Bring on the wods!!! Competed in the Masters Division in 2011, 2012 and 2013 and 2014.
