About

I was born and raised in Fullerton, California. I stayed in Southern California to attended Biola University where I received my B.S in Environmental Science and minored in Biblical Studies. I began running in 6th grade on a club cross country team, and have been running competitively now for almost 13 years. After I graduated from college I moved to Olympia, WA as a middle school science teacher. I got married in the summer of 2016 to Carly who I met on the track at Biola. We greatly enjoyed backpacking Europe all summer for our honeymoon. I am also the Director for Local Development of a small nonprofit named "HarvestCraft." We aim to empower communities through sustainable agriculture solutions. My main goal in running is to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Trials in the marathon, but also aim to develop myself as a well-rounded runner as I compete at a high level in various distances.
