In His Own Words:

My running journey began as a track team manager turned High School Record holder in 100m, 200m and 4×100 team relay. Previously a sub 50 second 400m runner, I turned my talents to distance running in 2013. I have since completed the Chicago marathon but loves the fast and deep pain of the 5K the most. My love of the long run and my history with these sprints mean my coaching sessions provide a special punch and flavor all their own. While I personally love running, my goal as a running coach is to diversify the running culture in Boston.
