welcome to my website and blog
When I turned 40 few years ago and looked back at my life, I realize that I’ve been blessed with a multitude of experiences that have given me a true appreciation for life.
After I was diagnosed with cancer in 1995, I became a triathlete to proved that although I had cancer, cancer did not have for me.
After more than a decade of being a competitive triathlete, I became a coach in order to share my passion for the sport and the healthy lifestyle with others.
Although I started along the well-traveled path of high school, college (U.S. Naval Academy) then career (submarine officer in the Navy then several corporations), I have since diverged from that path to start a endurance sports training business (ENDURANCEWORKS, LLC) and a triathlon (Luray Triathlon), which matched my active lifestyle and creative energy. More recently, I began my path towards mastery in To-Shin Do Martial Arts at the Boulder Quest Center and later at the Newbury Park Martial Arts Center where I earned my 1st and 2nd degree black belt (shodan and nidan).
Finally, as a writer, I hope to share my experiences and inspire you to chase your dreams.
