A short history of my life as an athlete, in photos and videos below. My current pursuits as an athlete are as a skeleton racer, with my eyes set on the 2022 Olympics in Beijing China. After spending 8 years with Team USA and reaching a career best of USA #1 and World #8 at the 2016 World Championships in Austria, I decided to switch teams and finish my career representing American Samoa. More details about this latest chapter in the athletic journey can be read about here.

Skeleton: Head First On Ice At Over 125kph & 5g
A point-of-view video of one of my skeleton runs on the Park City, UT, track. On days with fast ice, I'll break 80mph coming out of curve 6, and maintain most of that speed through curve 14.
Squash Game at the Princeton Club of NY
A pastime of my youth in which I only get to indulge about once a year since graduating university. I lost 11-8 to my buddy Nick, but I got to blame the borrowed racquet. Although not the most technically sound game, we did manage a 22 stroke rally early on. A well hit squash ball easily travels over 150mph.

Part of my workout at the Olympic Training Center, Lake Placid, NY. Getting just over 80% of my body height on the box jumps.
