Hey everyone! I’m originally from Richmond, California. After a short stint as a grocery bagger in high school, I decided to enlist in the U.S. Air Force. During this time I was a Jet Engine Mechanic and a Flight Engineer. Since I grew up competing in wrestling, when the opportunity came to be able to coach, I jumped at it! I was the Head Coach of the Varsity Wrestling team at Desert High School on Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California for 4 years. My most recent military assignment landed me in Germany in 2015. In December I retired from the Air Force after 20 years of service. When it came time to choose a new career path I decided to follow my dream of owning/operating a CrossFit gym. From that was born Teutonic CrossFit!

When and where did you first start CrossFit?
I first started at Monster CrossFit in Lancaster, California in 2015. I was hooked immediately.
Why do you coach?
There are too many reasons to list, but my favorite thing is being a part of peoples journey to improve themselves. The happiness they find in overcoming obstacles makes me twice as happy!
Got any hobbies?
Hanging out with my beautiful daughter Bonnie Rae. When I have the time I also referee High School Wrestling for DOD schools in Europe.
