About Coach

I have lived in the Overland Park, Kansas area my entire life. I currently have a wonderful wife and four children, run a successful landscaping business, I am a part of the ownership team, and help coach the many athletes here at Kansas Athletic Club. I enjoy the outdoors, and love the water no matter what kind, lake, ocean, or pool as long as it is outside! Going to Florida and enjoying quiet time on the beach, oceanside jogs, and paddleboarding are passions of mine, as well as spending the quality time away with my family. Work is also a passion of mine and I enjoy it on such a level that each day is exciting, rewarding, and fulfilling to me. I enjoy sharing my motivation and journey with others, and hope each and every day I can be a positive influence for someone, creating a lasting change in their own live's.

Turning Point

CrossFit became a passion of mine at the age of 40 when times in my life were proving to be a challenge both mentally and physically. Since then, by fully submersing myself in the various training methods of CrossFit, as well as by surrounding myself with the many awesome people for whom I now call friends in the Cross Fit community, I have turned my life around both mentally and physically. I feel life is a constant work in progress for which you can never look back nor ever let up as you move forward. It is our duty as humans to help others and CrossFit has been one of the many tools to help me help others.

Motivation & Passion

My passion in my life is my wife, my kids, God, my career, CrossFit, and helping other achieve their own personal goals. I am truly grateful for everything this life has blessed me with. Coaching has opened up another chapter in my life to be able to not only utilize my knowledge I have learned as an athlete and as a coach, but also build off the power of other people who give back to me as I give to them. I am motivated daily by my family as well as the awesome, motivated team of athletes, business partners, and coaches that surround me at Kansas Athletic Club. The energy is magnetic and a force that I truly feel will help propel myself into a successful and rewarding future as a person.
