Polar products have measured every step I've taken over the last few years accurately and reliably. It's a comfort knowing that after a training session I'll be able to objectively monitor what that training has taken out of me, and continually tweak my process based on that data to ensure I get to my next starting line fit, rested, and ready.
Born in Indianapolis Indiana, I began running in high school, and continued training at DePauw University. In 2015 I relocated to Boulder Colorado to chase my dream of becoming a professional runner. I began to have some successes quickly, and was lucky enough to sign my first contract with Polar in 2016. In the years since, I’ve established myself as a nationally competitive athlete, with eyes set on fulfilling my absolute potential and doing the best I can.

I try to embrace all my competitors before the start, we’re all in it together after all.
Qualifying for the US Olympic Trials in both the 10k and Marathon in 2016. I hadn’t ever expected to qualify, but I put together a great year and redefined my possibilities.
