Grew up in Parma, Idaho, moved to Springfield, Missouri in 2003 to play football at Evangel University. Played ball overseas in Europe after college and then found myself back in Ozark, Missouri where I opened a CrossFit gym in 2011 - CrossFit 417 which I still own and operate today. I started competing in CrossFit in 2012, competing individually through 2014 and then led a team through my gym to the CrossFit Games in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. I transitioned from competing in CrossFit to tactical games this past year (2022) which has been an easy transition because it allows me to still use my fitness but combine it with my love for outdoors and shooting.
