Hi, I’m a husband to my bride of 34 years, father of two beautiful daughters and grandpaw to my two grandpuppies. I’ve been very active in triathlons for the past 15 years and have been doing Ironman triathlons since 2013.I’ve learned a lot about myself during my training and participation in Ironman and have been blessed with having developed many meaningful friendships with other Ironman athletes. I spend a lot of time on the road on my bike, where I’ve always been committed to obeying all traffic laws. Nonetheless, I’m concerned that each ride may be my last. I’ve had several close calls with drivers veering within inches of me while on my bike and know of several friends who have had friends killed by drivers while on their bikes while they were simply enjoying their healthy lifestyle and obeying traffic laws, as well. As a result, I want to do everything I can to make the roads safer for everyone and to promote enhanced goodwill between cyclists and drivers.I’d like to continue participating in Ironman for many years to come and want to be able to simply come home to my family after each ride. As a proud ambassador of the It Could Be Me movement, I’d like to bring increased awareness to cyclists and motorists alike to ensure mutual respect and adherence with traffic laws in order for each of us to share the roads safely together, and for each of us to be able to keep coming home to our loved ones after every outing. It Could Be Me and it could be you. Let’s partner together to help make the roads safer for us all.
