I was born in Holland and moved to New Zealand when I was 7. After living there for 4 years, moved to Canada. After that I moved several more times between Holland, Canada and New Zealand, After finishing college in Holland I moved to California and in 2001 to Florida, where I currently reside.
Growing up my parents always encouraged use to be active and I participated in several sports ranging from rowing, cross country and down-hill skiing to cycling. In college I joined the school's triathlon club doing several sprint and Olympic distance races. In California I took up mountain biking. Initially in Florida I was less active until I started running and did my 1st half marathon in 2013. Due to an injury and having to take time off running in 2014, I started swimming and riding again. and did a local sprint triathlon later that year followed by the Escape to Miami Olympic Triathlon. Did Ironman 70.3 Augusta in 2017, my 1st Half Ironman. Since then I have done three more Half Ironman's and am signed up for Ironman Louisville later this year.
