About me

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 was hooked. Currently, I'm most excited about combining the worlds of UL backpacking and ultrarunning through FASTPACKING.

I trained, planned, and prepped to attempt the self-supported FKT on the PCT in 2018 but was thwarted off the day I had left for the trail due to an appendicitis. I hope to have better luck in June of 2021 when I will give it another go.
