I am an endurance runner and sales professional for athletic, recreation, and leisure markets.

Running has been a passion of mine from the very moments I could walk. I compete in trail, mountain, road, and snowshoe running with a focus on ultra-marathon distances. I currently reside in Providence, RI with my wonderful wife, two dogs, and three cats. My father is also an amazing figure and role model in my life. It is while living back in New Jersey, where I grew up, that I developed a new love for the sport and culture of golf. I am practicing to merge my passion for running with my love of golf in hopes of one day competing in speed golf.

I graduated from SUNY Cortland with a Master’s Degree in Management of Recreation and Leisure services, prior to which I earned my bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Oklahoma where I ran cross country. 

I strive to be a positive influence for others and to inspire people to get outside and enjoy nature. This philosophy emerges in every aspect of my life and career, which is why I enjoy working with brands and businesses that encompass athletics, recreation, and leisure as lifestyle.

After my 197 mile run across New Jersey in January 2021, I have been motivated to take on some of the longest and most extreme ultra endurance challenges in the world. Some of those events include: Multi-Day Stage Events such as the 4 Deserts Race Series, Marathon Des Sables, The Grand To Grand Ultra, Long Endurance ultras like The Cocodona 250, The Triple Crown of 200’s (Tahoe, Moab, and Bigfoot), The Spartathlon, Badwater 135, Western States 100, arctic events such as the Arrowhead 135, Tuscobia, Sustina 100, The 6633, Yukon Arctic ultra, and the culminating event the Iditarod trail invitational 350 mile and the 1,000 mile trail event. My mission is to showcase that we can live without limits as long as we are willing to keep pushing. I have also taken a more leadership role in the sport of snowshoe running working both in the USA Snowshoe Association and the World Snowshoe Federation to help grow the sport and brand both in the US and Internationally.
