Motto: “You can accomplish anything as long as you have a open mind and a positive attitude.”
Why Did You Join Team RWB?
“I wanted to join a group that supports our Veterans and also start assisting in my community. I enjoy doing various obstacle races and wanted to join a group to help me train. There is nothing as motivating and awesome as seeing a sea of red t-shirts with the Team RWB logo.”
What has Been Your Favorite Event or Experience with Team RWB?
“My favorite event was my first event with Team RWB. There was a 4 or 7 mile ruck followed by a picnic and tubing down the river. From the moment that I arrived, everyone was so welcoming and delightful. I instantly made some new friendships and knew that this was a great group with amazing people from all walks of life.”
How Do You Serve Your Community?
“One of the ways I like to serve our community is volunteering at local races. This is also a great way to meet some new people and get involved in local events. Also, I like to try and do some fundraising if some of the races are for charity.“
What Inspires You?
“There are a few things that inspire me but the most important are my wife Kim who is also a Team RWB member and my 2 daughters. They are the reasons that make we want to improve and be a better person each and every day. Life can be stressful and a challenge at times but they are what keeps me grounded and motivates me to be who I am today.”
How Has Team RWB Impacted Your Life?
“Although its only been a couple months since I joined Team RWB, it’s been a great experience. I have met some wonderful people and enjoy the events that take place. As a Veteran currently employed in corporate America, sometimes you don’t always have that camaraderie and feeling of togetherness like you do in the military. Since joining Team RWB, I do feel that sense of camaraderie and always look forward to the next get-together and meeting new people.“
What Would You Say to Someone Who is Thinking of Joining Team RWB?
“I would say absolutely join Team RWB! You will meet some great people from all walks of life. From civilians to military, from active to those who may not choose to be, there are always great people to meet, new friendships to make and events/volunteering to partake. I am really proud to be apart of Team RWB and I know you will too!”
