My family means the world to me. My beautiful wife Kaylee, daughter Vienna, my son Hudson and my parents are my biggest supporters when it comes to competing and fundraising. I bartend full-time and am very passionate about my career that allows me a lot of free time during the day to train. I’ve completed more than 130 races and have raised nearly $20,000 for charity since I started running 10 years ago. There is nothing better than giving back and fundraising for the community in need. I'm on the race committee for RCC Run the Woods 4 Mile Trail Race and I'm on the Volunteer Committee for the IMT Des Moines Marathon. I volunteer for Sleep in Heavenly Peace where we build and deliver beds to children that do not have beds. I am a part-time/substitute associate at Sugar Creek Elementary - kids will put a smile on your face no matter how you're feeling! Lastly, I'm an official for the Iowa Athletic Commission judging Mixed Martial Arts and Boxing events for the state of Iowa. Keep fighting the good fight! Work hard. Play Hard. Don't Quit.
