Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of SilverLine Athletics - data analytics company focused on the active enthusiast community.
Professional Triathlete. Retired in 2013 after 6 years of an amazing journey. When I was a rookie, I couldn’t believe how fast everyone else went. When I finished, I couldn’t believe how fast I was able to go - still - after so long as an athlete. It made feel so fortunate, and that became and remains my only motivation in sport.
NCAA All-American Swimmer. I was the team captain and mid-distance freestyler for Penn State University, and helped lead the team to a first ever conference title in 2000. Along with my teammates, I held a world top-10 in the 800 free relay, and competed in the (pre-michael) olympic trials coming around 25th in the 100 and 200. Despite my career as a triathlete, it was sprint and mid-distance swimming that has translated to Zwift racing.
And I could not leave out...long before Zwift was a thing at all, I was rocking the indoor scene! I set TWO Guinness World records for furthest distance on a static bike (spin bike) in 2008. One as part of a 24 hour relay, and the other as a single rider hour record - 40.69 miles on a spin bike with zero resistance! It required an average rpm around 170 for the hour (and it was absolutely miserable). Here’s a pic. That’s me holding the book!
