I am a competitive martial artist of 25 years and hold two black belts in TaeKwonDo and Unified Martial Arts. As an MMA coach I've had had the opportunity to train and coach many Olympic and professional fighters over the years. I Started Crossfit June 2006 and slowly tapered off my life long martial arts passion so I could dedicate myself to this new sport. I am a Network Security Engineer for Verizon during the day, full time father/husband in the evenings. I fit workouts in around the family whether it be while everyone is sleeping, doing homework, or at the gym doing their own workout. I married my high school sweetheart and we've been happily married for 22+ years, have two wonderful kids (Luke 13, Arilyn 16). Majority of my training with Crossfit has been in my garage over the years. The whole family enjoys working out.
