How and when did you start doing CrossFit?
Spring 2012 (Kaia made me do it…bless her heart!)

Tell us a little bit about yourself. Family? Job? Hobbies?
I’m blessed with a wonderful family whom most of you know – wife Kaia and boys Hayden, Andrew and Reid. Kaia and I spend most of our time driving the boys around to sports activities and social events – a lot of weekends spent at ball fields. When we get a chance to hang out as a family, we love to xfit and ski. I’m lucky to have a cool job in event marketing. CrossFit is actually a client. DM me if you want to work at The Games this year.

Favorite WOD and Favorite Movement?
I love partner WODs – rests are awesome. When my shoulder works, I also like Fran – short WODs are awesome. I like DUs, wall balls and a good hang clean.
Least favorite WOD and least favorite movement?
Don’t like heavy deadlifts or HSPUs in WODs. I’m also terrible at toes-to-bar. Is there a WOD with all of those things? I hate that WOD. What’s that one with back to back 500m rows – awful.
Your Favorite junk food?
Pizza – it has an industrial strength power over me

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want with you?
My family unit, my iphone (island has wifi BTW) and pizza delivery
Describe yourself in one word?
If you could create a WOD, what would it look like?
8-12 minutes of some mix of hang power cleans, front-rack walking lunges, pull-ups and double-unders
