I was born in Toronto, Canada and grew up in New Hampshire. With no cross-country or track experience I don’t have the typical runner’s resume that many athletes have in obstacle racing. I did play college basketball and a couple years of semi-professional baseball, but I had never run more than 3 consecutive miles until I was 36 years old!
My first obstacle race was a Spartan Sprint in late 2012, and that was the one that hooked me. I finished 56th in the open heat of that race, and barely made the top 10 of my age group - but I had found my passion. Since then, I've logged thousands of hours of OCR-specific training, running trails and inclined treadmills, working grip strength and moving heavy objects as quickly as possible.
Since 2012, I’ve dedicated myself to the sport of obstacle racing and have done everything I can with training, nutrition and mindset to constantly improve. Currently, I'm focused on short to mid distance courses.
Outside of competing, I'm focused on growing the sport of OCR and promoting the athletes and businesses that make this whole thing possible. I'm a founding partner of FitLincMedia, where we help OCR athletes and businesses grow their brands, dial-in their social media and connect with each other around sponsorship. Again in 2019, I'll serve as Head Official for the North American OCR Championships (NORAM) and Obstacle Course Racing World Championships (OCRWC). In my spare time, I'm dad to my boy, Mr. to my Ms. and committed to improving in everything I do, every day.
