Unleash Your Inner Athlete
Achieve peak performance for your team, organization and community using lessons I learned from rowing 2,700 miles alone across the Pacific, and my 14-year journey to become an elite endurance athlete.
Endurance athletes turn dreams into reality in their spare time. But we weren’t born with this skill - we learned it. And you can, too.
You just need the courage to listen to your heart, and the clarity to choose which stories you tell yourself.
In 2020 I became the first person in history to row across the Pacific Ocean from California to Hawaii with no prior rowing experience. The journey took 71 days and 2,700 miles, powered only by sheer will and two oars.
I was experiencing depression in college, and just leaving my dorm felt like a mighty challenge. But when a friend invited me to join him in a short triathlon and I began to train, I discovered I’m so much stronger than I thought. I’ve since come to realize, we all are.
Over the next decade, I went on to run over 45 marathons, two Ironmans with top-5% finishes, and a 145-mile non-stop ultramarathon. Once, I even completed a cross-country ski marathon on borrowed equipment just weeks after learning to ski. At each step of my journey I realized again and again, my assumptions and limiting beliefs about what I could achieve were not only wrong, they were completely irrelevant.
I am stronger than my body, I am more than my mind.

Organizations I’ve Worked With
Inspiration isn’t something you go out and find. It comes from within.
We all have an ocean to cross.
And most times our ocean is more mental than anything else.
I would know. When preparing to row across the ocean – and then while I was at sea – I was pummeled by wave after wave of self-doubt. This is the storm that weathers our dreams.
Whatever your goal, cultivating mental resilience is essential. The distance between where you are now and where you want to be is no greater than the space between your ears, and how far your mind is from your heart.
