I describe myself as a learner, non-pro athlete, and yogi. I like to eat real food and take care of myself. I work on robots and artificial intelligence (which some people think is cool) at UC Berkeley, getting my PhD , but most of my effort goes towards living a long, healthy, and thrivingful life.
My athletic career is heavily defined by my time at Cornell Lightweight rowing (national champs '14, '15, '17), and then coaching California Lightweight Crew. Since this I have been competition as a triathlete (1x olympic, 3x sprint, 1x half ironman, 1x13.1), but that has been slowed by COVID. I like to try and share how to improve people's lives through movement and food.
Connected to my graduate studies at Berkeley, I am the department wellness coordinator so I am trying to get people active and engaged with their mental health. My general advice for people is wellbeing comes first, then training, then competing. Picky bars exemplify this to me, and I love supporting them.
