I am a 29 year old Professional Endurance Athlete born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. My professional triathlon career started with 7th and 8th place finishes at my first two Professional XTERRA America Tour races in 2011. I qualified for Team USA and finished 12th in the Pro Men’s race at the 2012 ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships. In 2013 I overcame a rough season to finish 20th Pro Male at the XTERRA World Championships in Maui. Over the last 3 years I continued to dabble in off road triathlon, but the main focus was fat bike racing to help promote and grow the Alaskan fat bike brand 9:ZERO:7 Bikes. Racing for 9:ZERO:7 Bikes, I twice won the Fat Bike Birkie, which is the largest fat bike race in the world with well over 1000 participants. I also won and placed on the podium in winter ultra endurance races such as the Arrowhead Ultra 135 in Minnesota, the Susitna 100 in Alaska, and the White Mountains 100 just below the Arctic Circle. For the 2018 season and the future, my goal is to compete at the highest level in the XTERRA Off Road Triathlon Series and one day win the XTERRA World Championships.
