  • How long have you been doing CrossFit and how long have you been at CrossFit DC? 

I started CrossFit in 2018 after my best friend Lonyl convinced me to join. I was sold on the idea of dropping in and collecting CrossFit t-shirts from around the world. I became a member at CrossFit DC shortly after moving to DC in March 2021.

  • What do you do when you’re not crushing workouts at the gym?

Pre-Covid I was traveling a lot! I miss those days. Now you can find me vacuuming my home, cruising around DC on my moped, watching Survivor, and looking for friends that want to play Mafia.

  • What is a goal you’re currently working towards (in the gym or beyond)? 

My lifetime goal is to win Survivor. An impossible CrossFit goal is to get one strict HSPU.

  • Favorite and least favorite CrossFit movements/workouts? 

I never miss a (barbell) snatch day and I schedule my rest on deadlift days, I’m too tall for that shit.

  • What is one coaching cue/tip that has helped you recently? 

I have a few great tips, give them a try! For double unders — stay calm. For muscle ups — be confident. For handstand walks — point your toes and keep your hands closer together. Follow me on Twitter for more tips and my thoughts on daytime television.

  • What is something you wish you knew about CrossFit when you first started? 

I wish I would have known how competitive it was and not just competition-wise. CrossFit gave me goals and a reason to workout- I didn’t have that before I started.
