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.
