I am a fifty-two year old native Texan born and raised in Fort Worth. I currently live in Mansfield, Texas with my wife of ten years, Carla. My personal interests are triathlon, running, bass fishing.. My wife and I own a Yoga & Fitness studio in Mansfield. I’m also an owner of a Managed Service IT company in Fort Worth.
I grew up riding and racing BMX bikes. Was inspired to the road from watching Greg LeMond on TV as a young teenager. I was initially hooked as a kid by the feelings of freedom and the sensations of speed. Growing up I lived in a neighborhood that was at the bottom of a hilly area, to ride anywhere you had short steep climbs ahead. My friends and I would ride until dark, up and down the hills we rode repeatedly.
After many years off the bike I started training in February of 2020. Within seven months I had lost forty-five pounds and made the decision to start training for an Ironman 70.3 event. I raced three sprint triathlons in 2021. In the first two events I had two top ten finishes, winning my age group (50-54) in the second event. I ran my first half marathon on September 11th, and placed third in my age group with a time of 1:43:45.
