 2017 racing is done. Not on the high note I was working for, but zero complaints at this incredible event. Just an experience that will serve as a catalyst for change. This whole season has been turned out to be a lesson and an opportunity for reflection. Here’s to some time off and to planning 2018. Thanks to all my sponsors for their support, and to all the people who have helped me in some way this year. There are too many to count, but none have gone un-appreciated and I feel so grateful to be a part of this family. #triathlon  Thanks to #epiccyclesworld here in Clermont for being everything I love about local shops this past week as I prep for @islandhousetri. I’ve had good chats, heat acclimation sessions using their awesome facilities, a couple delicious date shakes, and plenty of espresso, all from cool people who care. Amazon hasn’t won yet. Also, they sell @argon18bike  #buylocal #localbusiness #paininparadise #argon18bike
 Made it to paradise! Tomorrow is full gas. @islandhousetri #paininparadise #bahamas #triathlon #pocteam #argon18bike #dbtravel  Haven’t really felt like taking any pictures or video this trip. I’ve really been enjoying the moment, enjoying the training process, and not stressing about capturing it. It’ll come back at some point I expect, but nothing good ever comes from forcing things. Or so I’m learning. Full focus on @islandhousetri next week #paininparadise #fullsend #theprocess
 Clermont camp is a wrap. The definition of basic. On to the fun stuff @islandhousetri #paininparadise #painbeforeparadise #givesyouwings #triathlon  Just under 2 weeks until @islandhousetri! That leaves about 5 days to put more work into my run. Stoked with how it’s going. #paininparadise  @tzaferes #miyazakiWC #worldtriathlon #givesyouwings #ltpendurance #triathlontraining

Who I Am

Early Years

I’ve always been very active, even as a kid. I loved building jumps in my family’s Oregon cul-de-sac to launch my wagon and my bike into orbit. I kept building and playing in sun or rain until my Mother’s call for dinner took on clear tones of fury. I started swimming competitively around age 6 and I quickly discovered how much I loved to compete and push the limits. I started racing local cycling events, and immediately fell in love with that two-wheeled rocket. I completed my first triathlon when I was 12.

Triathlon

I kept up the occasional triathlon to supplement my swim training for a few years, but this great sport gained momentum in my life. I joined a collegiate cross country squad to help develop my running ability and managed to win an 18-19 USAT National Championship. I qualified for both my pro card and entry into the U23 World Championships in 2012. In 2013, I joined The Triathlon Squad, moved to Poway and completed my first full professional season.

Videographer

Pro Triathletes are expected to write race reports, but nobody reads race reports. Seeking a better way to communicate, and an outlet for some bottled up creative juices, I took on some intensive research and experimenting with online videos. Thanks to the incredible support from friends, sponsors and the online triathlon community, I’ve stayed motivated to keep pushing the envelope of triathlon race and life videography. I want my videos to be visually engaging as well as rich in honest content for people interested in the sport I love.
