I grew up in Edina, MN and met my wife at Ripon College. I am a Registered Investment Rep with Avant Management and love helping people plan for retirement. My beautiful wife, Emily, and I live in S.t Louis Park with our Bernese mountain dog Huckleberry. I love to be outside on the water or running around the lakes.

Finding CrossFit

I was introduced to CrossFit by our neighbor who (against my will) brought my wife and I to try Crossfit. After meeting the amazing people and realizing just how out of shape I was I became determined to become fit!

Why I Coach

I coach Crossfit because I want to help other people take control of their health and fitness in the same life-changing way that my wife and I did when we found SISU. I want to encourage people to push themselves further than they ever thought they could. I am proud to be a part of the community of incredible athletes and wonderful family at SISU.
