Do you collect anything?

Nope, just unintentionally race shirts.

What is your most unusual talent?

I have a very high tolerance to mountain lake water and can hang out for longer than most.

What is the scariest thing you have ever done?

No joke, Starting a 100 mile race for the first time.

Why do you like working with Gnarly?

Gnarly is comprised of great people and being able to put faces to a brand makes a huge difference. Also, their product is my favorite. That’s coming from a picky Nutritionist.

Outside of your respective sport, what are you most proud of?

I just got married and I’m really proud to have married an amazing lady.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Vegan sushi.

Who is your hero? Why?

I feel cliche saying this, but Kilian Jornet. He is the best in the world but doesn’t lose himself in the fame. He’s pure, humble, and an out-of-this world athlete with incredible work ethic.

Any advice for aspiring athletes?

Be consistent and identify your “why” before really pursuing a sport or else you will lose your passion.

I recommend…

The Performance Greens are my favorite. As an athlete, there are long days on the trails where I am depleted and need a little extra to get in all the nutrients I need even if I ate perfectly that day. I use the greens in the morning every day. Gnarly Vegan is amazing! I haven’t ever tasted a vegan protein powder that tasted so good and is so full of whole ingredients. I use the protein when I come home from long efforts or have lifted in the gym. I love mixing it with frozen bananas and almond milk in a blender.
