When did you start CrossFit?

I started in February of 2011.

How long have you been coaching/instructing?

I’ve always been interested in coaching, but actually received my level 1 in November 2016 when Cathy, Chet, and I decided to buy the gym.

What’s your favorite WOD or movement?

My favorite movement is definitely the snatch, but I also love any long, grueling workout with farmer’s carries, walking lunges, etc.  Anything with a partner or team is pretty great!

Outside of working out, what is your favorite hobby/interest?

I love craft beer and brew my own in my free time.

Favorite sports team:

The Cincinnati Reds and the Indiana University Hoosiers!

Tell us one interesting thing about yourself:

Shortly after graduating from IU I moved to Africa and lived in Mali while serving in the Peace Corps.
