I grew up in the City of Orange until I enlisted in the Marine Corps at age 18. In 2004 I was stationed overseas at a U.S. Embassy, looking for ways to maintain my fitness. I found ways to incorporate the CrossFit workouts with our unit exercise program and decided to get my CrossFit Level 1 in 2007.

We opened up Carlsbad CrossFit in 2012. We acquired Vista CrossFit (formerly known as Purged CrossFit) in 2016.

I love coaching. In addition to coaching at both locations, I also program the workouts, work with individuals on fundamentals and limited 1-on-1 training. I have also spent a few years running a P.E. program for grades K-8 and worked with middle and high school cross country.

In September 2018, I became a member of the CrossFit Seminar Staff, which has been an amazing experience helping develop new CrossFit trainers.

I also have a strong passion for the mental side of performance.
