I started doing parkour seven years ago after watching American ninja warrior. From there, I started competing regularly in all types of comps all over the country and have been doing that for 4 years now. I go to multiple gyms such as Dexterity Depot and Kinetic Ninja Warrior once a week, to train with a lot of the Mid-Atlantic ninjas. Some accomplishments are being a semifnalist on ANWJR, competing on season 13 of ANW, placing 4th at NNL finals, and 3rd at UNAA finals.

You can watch me on Seasons 13 &14 of American Ninja Warrior.

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.
