Career Highlights
2019 NCAA All-American in the 10,000m; member of 2019 NCAA Champion cross country Team member at BYU; 4-time NCAA West Regional Cross Country qualifier; professional triathlete
Married for three years with an 8-month-old named Miles. Dad inspired me to get into running by competing in the Boston Marathon twice when I was in middle school and high school. He also competed in two Ironman World Championships in Hawaii and is a 4-time Ironman finisher.
Greatest Accomplishment
Marrying my wife, Hannah, and having our son Miles is the greatest accomplishment so far in my life. Being a part of the one and only National Championship Cross Country team at BYU is also one of my great accomplishments.
Interesting Story
I almost gave up running after college but decided to try and get into the Olympic Marathon Trials right after I graduated. I used that race as my make-or-break moment in running and I qualified for the Trials on my first attempt, at Grandma's Marathon. I'm now working a full-time corporate job that demands a lot of my time and attention along with trying to be a great father to my newborn son. I am also a professional triathlete and hope to compete in many Half Ironman and Ironman distance events later in 2024 (if I don't qualify for the Olympics, in the marathon).I eventually want to leave my corporate job and focus full-time on pursuing my dream of being a professional endurance athlete whether that is in the marathon or triathlon.

Favorite Running Memory
Winning the 2019 NCAA Cross Country Championships at BYU. I will never forget being a part of that team and the camaraderie I still feel with all of those teammates, coaches and training staff.
