Role with USA Triathlon Foundation: Chair of the Board of Trustees

What drove you to the multisport lifestyle and the USA Triathlon Foundation? Triathlons have provided me an opportunity to train and compete in my favorite sports. It is an honor to give back in my role as a trustee to help USA Triathlon Foundation in opening pathways for all to enjoy the benefits of an active and healthy life.

Athletic background: After being a member of the crew and the swimming/diving team in college, I transitioned to short distance triathlons and road races as a member of the Central Park Track Club. In order to spend more time with my wife, a distance runner, I transitioned to the Olympic and Ironman distance, as well as running marathons with her.
