MichaelFirst and foremost I am a proud father to an amazing boy. I’m a full time firefighter/paramedic and have been in the fire service for over 15 years. My passion in life is the outdoors, namely pursuing big game. Fitness is paramount in both my profession as a firefighter and passion of mountain hunting.

I think of myself as the consummate CrossFitter. There is no one thing I excel at but there is nothing I suck at either. I strive to have fun, be safe, and maintain integrity with the movements. I want my fitness and health to carry on later into life (the old guy that goes out at night, gets into a fight, wins the fight, and goes home with the girl).
