    Head Coach  

    My passion is endurance sports, and triathlon in particular. I thrive on working with athletes to help them achieve their unique, individual goals and I believe strongly that coaching is not about the coach. Coaching is about the client athlete. The ability to separate from one’s own goals and desires and focus 100% on the goals, needs and growth potential of the client, no matter the experience or ability level, is the foundation for good coaching. Athletic experience should be applied to lessons and training strategies, but it should only be done so in the context of how it applies to the athlete.

    In the past 10 years, I have competed in well over 40 triathlon, marathon and cycling endurance events across North America and have placed in my age group in various distances and races, but this in no way proves coaching ability. The results and references from the athletes trained under a solid understanding of the sport and proven endurance training principles show one’s abilities and character as a coach. My experience as a coach and my commitment to always do what is best for the client first has translated into consistently positive results for athletes at all levels under my training programs.

    I began coaching triathlon in 2005 in San Diego, California and mentored under Dave Scott’s Team in Training coaching certification program before moving back to the East Coast (South Carolina) later that year. In 2007 I moved from South Carolina to Quebec, Canada and continued to coach both running and triathlon in both group and individual settings. In 2011, I again attended the coaching certification program with Dave Scott, and upon returning to South Carolina in 2015, I completed the USAT coaching certification.

    While in Montreal, Quebec, I coached under CT Coaching and co-founded theCT TRI triathlon club, which logged several athlete podium finishes in its very first year. The club continues to offer triathletes a uniquely supportive environment in which to pursue the sport. Now back in South Carolina, I am working to bring the principles of success and proven coaching models to the newly founded CT Endurance training platform. I enjoy working with athletes both directly and virtually, and I look forward to growing the CT TRI community in 2016 and beyond.

    Head Coach  

    I started the sport of triathlon in July of 2006. 3 years removed from my time in the U.S. Air Force I lost focus on my fitness. I smoked, drank, ate more than my share, and gained quite a bit of unwanted weight. I had completely lost the drive to better myself in any way. It was a random conversation in a Chicago bar with some friends that would transform me into the person I am today. A simple dare to compete in a sprint triathlon changed the course of the person I would become. I quit smoking the very next day and began training for my first triathlon. After struggling to finish the race, I immediately challenged myself to better my level of fitness and compete once again. Finishing my next raise with far greater results, I was hooked on triathlons. I completed my first Olympic distance tri the same year and in 2007 completed my first 70.3.

    In 2008, I joined the Chicago Police Triathlon Club where I began mentoring first time triathletes. I began organizing group swims in Lake Michigan and group rides and runs along the Chicago lakefront path. In 2010, with a few years of racing under my belt, I decided that I wanted to help those new to the sport and begin working individually with them. My first year of coaching was more gratifying than my own endurance experiences and I decided to put more emphasis on it. In 2012, I relocated to Charleston where I decided to further pursue coaching and in 2015 I completed the USAT coaching certification.

    Endurance training has become a major staple in my life. It has proved me time and time again that I can always better myself not only as an athlete, but as a person. There is always room for personal growth and development and through my own experiences I have been able to pass that knowledge on to fellow athletes. Being a competitive athlete is very rewarding but it pales in comparison to coaching athletes. Helping athletes achieve their goals and pushing them through their mental and physical barriers is a feeling that far surpasses my own accomplishments as an athlete.

    I enjoy coaching because there is no constant. Each athlete is different with their own strengths and weaknesses and they must each be approached differently. The coach – athlete relationship is a special one and requires total commitment, strong work ethic, and understanding. I strive to make each athlete the best they can possibly be through individualized training. My goal here at CT Endurance is to make you, the athlete, the best you can be through proven training methods and determination. CT Endurance looks forward to improving athletes for years to come.
