I always loved sports and I ended up following my father’s footsteps in triathlon after 3 trips to the Hawaii Ironman (1998-2002-2006) that really gave me that passion for triathlon.
In January 2013, I started my college studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, in Business Marketing. That year, I was 4th at the USAT Collegiate National Championships; the consistent training paid off and I won the title in 2014 (and again in 2015).
In 2014 I concentrated on the 5i50 races and on the ITU Conti Cups. I had 6 PRO podiums and ended up 9th in the famous Hy-vee Championship. I ended the season with a promising 2nd at my first half-ironman ever at Challenge Rancho Cordova (1h13 run). In 2015, I again won USAT Collegiate Nationals, and had my first professional win at Challenge San Gil (half-ironman). In ITU racing, I became the American U23 Champion and placed 14th at the ITU Worlds U23 Championships in Chicago.
