Story:

I’ve always been passionate about the outdoors. I remember when we were young my family would take me and my little brother out for adventures in the mountains. This planted the seed and helped shape who I am today and how much I enjoy myself in the outdoors.
I’ve always been interested in sport since I was young - playing soccer and softball, and competing in triathlons before getting more into running in my early 20’s.
I love all types of terrain and profiles when training and racing. My favorite would have to be technical rolling single track. Nothing quite beats that feeling of running along trails like this with friends.
My favourite place for trail running is the Dolomites. The variety of trails and the scenery is incredible!
Keep chasing your dreams, don’t believe anyone that says you “can’t” or “it’s too hard”.
