I am a husband and father of two girls 10yrs old and 5 yrs old. I work full time as a firefighter, EMT and co-own CrossFit Philia with my wife Denise. In college I was a Division 1 swimmer and rugby player at the University of Northern Iowa. Following college I began working as an assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Following work in Tampa I went on to work as head strength and conditioning coach for NFL Europe’s Rhein Fire and the XFL’s Orlando Rage before settling into CrossFit four years ago.
