I am a lover of movement in the mountains, among other landscapes of course but mountains are what beckon to me the loudest. Over the past couple years my athletic focus has been on trail racing and mountain FKTs (Fastest Known Times) alike. I’ve racked up a number of FKTs in my home mountain range, the Cascades, and have won a few ultra trail races as well. In 2022, one of the biggest races I competed in was the Puerto Vallarta 100k by UTMB where I placed 2nd and earned a spot to compete in the CCC 100k in France this year, one of my biggest goals of the coming season. The real through line of all these endeavors has been Fluid. Fluid’s Performance drink mix, both the Passion Fruit Tea and Fresh Citrus flavors, have fueled me through each and every outing and the Cinnamon Vanilla Recovery helps me feel fresh day after day. I found Fluid three years ago now and it has been a game changer for my ability to fuel, hydrate, and recover ever since. 

When I am not out running or doodling my way around landscapes, I run a business building tiny homes and van conversions called Roost Works in the teeny town of Trout Lake, Washington.
