My road in life has been direct.
Born and raised in Newport Beach, California.
Has been passionate about sports ever since childhood—for most of his life, he was focused on playing football and doing track.
Received football scholarships to Arizona State University and Washington State University, but turned them down due to unfavorable coaching changes.
Attended UCLA and received a degree in history.
While at UCLA, he played football his first year, then switched over to track, where he started doing the decathlon and later the javelin throw.
After graduation, he was introduced to the sport of bobsled by a track teammate and was encouraged to try out for the U.S. men's bobsled team by his former coach, Mike Maynard.
Made the team and has gone on to win multiple gold, silver, and bronze medals in the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation World Cup.
Competed in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games held in PyeongChang, South Korea.
