about me

I grew up playing baseball and then spent years surfing, bodyboarding, snowboarding, and skating.  In 2005 I was ready for a change and another challenge.  So I signed up for the Carlsbad Half Marathon in January of 2006.  After that I jumped headfirst in to triathlon and the fell in love with offroad racing and Xterra.
For 3 years I focused on Xterra and in 2008 was the Southwest Regional Champion and won the Xterra World Championship in the 30-34 age group in Maui.  Worlds in Maui was my last triathlon.  I was pretty burned and out and very content with my results.  I wanted a break and a new challenge.
In 2009 I decided to focus on just running and riding... and the just riding by mid summer.  I ended the 2009 season with some good results in mountain bike racing and then found a new addiction: cyclocross. I ended up with the cat 3/4 men division of the Souther California Prestige Series of Cyclocross... very unexpected.
In 2010 I will be focusing 100% on the bike.  The plan is to focus on the Socal MTB State Series, Kenda/US MTB Cup Series, Rim Nordic Series, some endurance mountain bike races and then cyclocross in the fall.
