Athlete Biography

I grew up in Airdrie, Alberta and got into triathlon in 1996. After being motivated by watching the 2000 Sydney Olympics, my family moved into Calgary to be closer to my training center, at the Talisman Center. I work with my head coach, Calvin Zaryski of www.criticalspeed.com to work towards the Olympic Gold in 2012.
