Defeat Ninjas. Those guys are everywhere and always a threat.

Favorite sport or activity?

Anything I have a chance at winning and/or blaming someone else if I lose.

How to raise the 1st Olympian in my family, she’s only 3 months old so I’ve got my work cut out.

Tell us something we don’t know about you…

I have cat like reflexes on the dance floor, especially at open bar venues.

Longhorns or Aggies?

I don’t care what college grad is serving me burger and fries, it just needs to be tasty.

Leave the fine folks of CrossFit Austin with some parting words…

Nature gave us all something to fall back on, and sooner or later we all land flat on it.
