WHY WHITE PINE ATHLETICS: To be a good athlete you need to be strong all around.  Having a coach helps make that possible.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF: I’m a photographer and filmmaker who loves being outside. For the past two years and until recently, I traveled the west shooting photos and exploring new places.  Besides trail running, I also enjoy backpacking and anything to do with the Southwest.

WHAT DRIVES YOU AS AN ATHLETE: Being able to go longer outside to take better images is a huge drive for me. I also just like to push myself and see how far I can go and to see what I can accomplish.
