I was born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona. I started sports at an early age, finding baseball and football as my favorites. I stuck with football until my sophomore year of college led to a season ending injury. Once football ended I found Crossfit in 2012, and the filled my competitive void. Over the years I fell in love with the methodology the people that filled the gym. I had no doubt it was what I wanted to do for living. I went to ASU and got my Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science. Being an owner of Camelback CrossFit has been one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me.

-Bachelors of Exercise Science from Arizona State University
-CrossFit Level 1
-CrossFit Level 2

My success in football earned me a scholarship to play Junior College at both Glendale Community College and Scottsdale Community College. During my sophomore year of college football I snapped my tibia in half and it ended my career.

Since I could no longer be competitive at traditional sports, and the LA Fitness routine was starting to bore me, I needed to get back to being competitive again. I was introduced to CrossFit by a couple friends and I was instantly hooked. Not only did it allow me to be competitive again, but I also came to a realization of what my passion was, fitness. I ended up choosing to go to school for Exercise and Wellness and graduated in May 2014. By getting the Exercise and Wellness bachelors degree I have learned so much about exercise and the benefits that people can get out of it. After getting my CrossFit Level 1 Cert a year later I realized that owning a CrossFit gym, competing, and coaching CrossFit was what I wanted to do for a living. I love the lifestyle that I live. I love waking up every day to help others achieve their lifestyle and fitness goals.

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and currently am enrolled at Scottsdale Community College furthering my education in health and fitness. I have no athletic background, so when I found crossfit, it completely changed my life. I began my crossfit journey two and a half years ago, and my passion for fitness has grown bigger every year!
Never being on a team growing up makes me proud to call Crossfit my sport of choice. One thing Crossfit has given me is a huge boost of confidence in myself.

I stuck with something that was extremely difficult for me in the beginning and it has paid off. I enjoy teaching kids the importance of exercise and staying fit through out life, and helping members reach their fitness goals as well. My goals as a coach is to show my support and help people live a healthy lifestyle. My goal as an athlete is to make is to regionals with my gym as a team.

I am originally from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I was always involved in several athletics growing up, playing football, basketball, baseball, and track. After sports, I had a fitness void in my life. I was still an active person, but it was difficult to find motivation in the gym. I then discovered CrossFit through a friend while living in Texas in 2011. Instantly fell in love with the community fitness atmosphere that CrossFit provides. Working along others gives me the motivation I need each day. In 2013, I moved to Scottsdale, AZ and started coaching CrossFit. Over the years I have competed in several national level CrossFit competitions. In 2017, wanting to furthered my knowledge about exercise science, I decided to complete a Exercise Science Masters degree from Arizona State University.

-Masters Degree in Exercise Science
-CrossFit Level 1

-CrossFit Level 2
-USA Weightlifting Level 1
-NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

I lettered my freshman year for the 400m dash and ran on varsity the remainder of my high school years ending with 4 league championships and 1 state championship.


Due to a hamstring injury my last year of track, I was unable to run track at the collegiate level. Instead, I turned towards intramural sports and the globo gym style of working out. I first heard of CrossFit through a college friend and gave it a shot. I was hooked on the community and the ability to see your hard work pay off. I wanted to help others achieve their goals which is why I decided to take the CrossFit trainer’s course. The most rewarding part for me is helping someone with a movement whether it’s lifts or gymnastics and seeing the light turn on in their head when they get it.
