I am an athlete and musician who was born and raised in Lincoln, NE. After spending many years in the music industry in Los Angeles, CA, I began to find solace in getting outside more. During a spur of the moment solo backpacking trip up the coast of California, I became enamored with getting out in the wilderness with everything I need on my back.
In 2016, I completed a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. In the desert, I met a handful of ultrarunners who inspired me to try ultrarunning. I took two breaks from the PCT to give it a shot and ran 50 miles in Bryce Canyon and the Broken Arrow Skyrace 54k in Squaw Valley, CA. I became hooked.
In 2017 I stepped up my training, ran a few races, and in October placed 3rd at the G.O.A.T.Z 50k with a time of 3:59:31. That same year I had the "pleasure" of crewing Pete Kostelnick in the Badwater 135 mile race, from Death Valley NP to Mount Whitney which showed me a whole new level of grit and determination.
Currently, I'm most excited about combining the worlds of UL backpacking and ultrarunning through FASTPACKING. Follow me on my adventures as the story continues...
