A former college soccer player, I moved to Brooklyn in 2009 to get my Master’s at Pratt Institute.  After dedicating the first 20 years or so of my life to athletics the 5 or so years after college became more about becoming an architect, deciding who I was, and finding my place in the world.  While beginning to answer some of these questions I also put on about 15 lbs and was just disappointed in how I felt.  Luckily I found CrossFit through some friends – who never stopped talking about it.  Thanks to them I feel better than I’ve ever felt.  I got certified to be a coach in the Summer of 2011 and can’t get enough.  I love the ongoing challenge, the comradery, and the results.

When I’m not at the gym, I love to cook, be outside, and play with my amazing dog Cash.
