I'm a USA Triathlon Certified Coach (Level 3), an Ironman University Certified Coach, a Training Peaks Level 2 coach and I'm also a Precision Nutrition Coach.

I first saw the Ironman on TV in 1978 and even though I was a ball sport kid growing up, Ironman inspired me to push my limits physically and mentally. I still believe my best race is out there. That's what gets me up in the morning and out the door to train.

I raced my first triathlon in 1988 and coached my first triathlete in 1992. I walked on the cross-country and track teams during college and really loved the idea of continually getting faster and improving. This morphed into my wanting to help others discover their very best and eventually coaching others.

I started D3 Multisport in 2000 as there was a need for high-quality coaching in the sport. As the founder and owner of D3 Multisport Coaching, I am proud of the 7 USAT Certified Coaches and 3 Specialty Coaches who work with our athletes to help them achieve their goals. There is no greater satisfaction than helping an athlete cross the finish line and achieve their multisport goals. We work together, using evidence-based training science, technology, and wisdom.

The evolution of Team D3 gets me further excited because we have this incredible framework to bring athletes together, develop camaraderie and inspire a community in what is often thought of as an individual sport.

Together we are #D3Powered!
