I’m 30, from Oakland, Maine. My favorite obstacle is the cargo net HAHA just kidding... it’s the double dipper. My favorite ninjas are Chris DiGangi ️, Jon Alexis - we’ve been friends since I was 15 and he’s the reason I started ninja! We drove 12 hours from Maine to go to a ninja comp at Alternate Route. Never trained on a single obstacle . The only other sport I was competitive in was Track, competed D1 in college and competed at Jr Nationals and NCAA nationals.

I started ninja training in 2017 and didn’t do very well at my first Ultimate Backyard Warrior competition when I was 12.  But I caught the ninja bug and wanted to get better.  So, I stepped up my training and became a student of the sport.  I ended up in the top 10 at NNL finals 5 months later.  I was introduced as “The Bathrobe Ninja” on seasons 1&2 of ANWJR (making it to the semifinals both years). Since then I finished:

UNAA Finals: #10 (13&under) 2018, #3 (13&under) in 2019 AWG Finals: #1 (11-13) 2019, #2 (14-16) 2020 NNL Finals: #9 (13-14) and #6 (Strongest Ninja)  in 2020 This year, I’m competing as a “pro” in each of the leagues I compete in.

I am homeschooled and work as a ninja coach at Rock Solid Warrior in NC.

I first started Ninja Warrior when my dads CrossFit coach applied for the show. I didn’t know what it was so I searched it and from that point forward I was hooked. I have done 2 serious years of training. At first I started off playing on monkey bars at school. But I got more serious and made a backyard ninja course and started going to a ninja warrior/parkour gym. In my 2 years of training I have accomplished getting on ANW Jr, getting 5th in the nation for UNAA 2017, Getting podium in my first adult competition, and being a two time Area and Regional champion for UNAA.
