5.) Personal Information


-Why did you choose RogueAC?

Steve seemed like the perfect fit for me, a middle between overly laissez faire and super strict. I have always heard great things about the city of Austin, so I wanted to check it out for myself. Also, I loved being a part of a team in college and really wanted to continue that through my professional career; Rogue was the perfect opportunity for that.

-What is your least favorite band?


– Favorite post-run food

Burger with pepper-jack cheese, bacon, and guac with sweet potato fries and a caesar salad

– Favorite workout

1k repeats and anything fast

– Heads or Tails?


– Who is the most influential or inspirational person in your running? Why?

Bob Drouin. He was my very first running coach and without him I would have never started running. He gave me a glimpse of my potential and I have only gone up since then.

– Dream job after running

Lawyer working for an organization that deals with international/human rights law and affairs

– Favorite movie

Slumdog Millionaire
