About Me:

I am a professional marathoner for PowerBar attempting to make the next Olympic Marathon team in Rio 2016. I began running competitively while at Fountain Valley High School in Southern California. Despite never making the California State Meet in either cross country or track, I earned a scholarship to run at California State University, Fullerton. After my college career I began racing more often on the roads, trying my hand at 10ks, half marathons, and eventually the marathon. I debuted in 2006 at the Chicago Marathon, where I ran 2:16:58 and qualified for my first Olympic Trials. 


Ever since that day I have focused my career on racing marathons, with my main goal being to make an Olympic team. I have run 17 marathons in my career; my only victory was the 2013 US Championships. However, I have also finished Top-10 in 14 Marathons, including 4 at World Marathon Majors. My next race will be the Disneyland Star Wars Half Marathon on January 15th before I shift my focus to some Ultra races.


I currently live and train in Flagstaff, AZ with my wife, Carolyn, and our dog, Luna. I train with Team Run Flagstaff, a community organization in Flagstaff for which I am an assistant coach.
