The first time I saw it, I was hooked. I love to race, I love to train, I love the speed. I have been speed skating for 20 years. I met my wife at the rink and after our wedding we went to skate at the same rink we met at. It is part of me and I love everything about it.
Hobbies outside of skating
Spending time with my wife and 4 children. I also enjoy Bowling, Cycling, Fishing, Wake Boarding, and the drums.
Something odd people wouldn’t know
I took 10 years off of professional racing to get my Doctorate and I am now looking to get a diploma in sports injury.
Best day of my life
March 26th, 1996 when I gave my heart to Jesus Christ. Next would be marrying my best friend Jenny and then the births of each of our four children.
A moment that defines me
Christ is the center of my life and I live each day for Him. I am far from perfect, but He is and I trust in Him. It is not about religion, it is about a relationship with the creator of the universe. Glory to God for He is good, all the time. My favorite quote is “I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
