I have been a multi-sport participant for over thirty years. Triathlon, Duathlon, Adventure Race, Xterra, ultra distance swimming, cycling, running, and more have all been attempted along with Olympic Weightlifting and numerous other sports.
Some of my certifications are: USA Triathlon, USA Cycling, USA Weightlifting coach; USAT Referee, CrossFit and Russian Kettlebell Challenge Instructor and Fellowship of Christian Athletes Huddle Leader. I’m also a member of, and an official for, USA Track & Field. Along with being an educator, I coach a High School bicycling team, Jetstream, which won the 2008 Road Bike State Championship and the 2008 Mountain Bike State Championship and series for both. In my spare time I coach a large contingent of exceptionally talented athletes who compete in triathlons from sprint to Ironman distances.
Previously I have served on the SMW Regional Board, was a past State Director of the National Strength & Conditioning Association / Texas; have coached at the US Olympic Festival, Pan-Am Games, NACACI Championships; American Open and others. My Olympic Weightlifting teams have won the Texas HS State Championship eight times and several of my athletes have been selected for World / Olympic teams by the USOC.
My passion lies with watching young athletes blossom, develop and bloom into America’s best. Setting up a ‘feeder system’ for USAT by developing youth is one of my goals.
