BACKGROUND
Southern California native growing up loving all sports. At 17, I competed in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney where I won a bronze medal along with placing 4th and 6th. I would later attend USC, and go on to break 17 school records, win two individual national championship and become a 12 time All-American. I returned to Olympic competition in Athens in 2004 after over coming many obstacles. Proud to say I came home with a medal of every color and was the anchor of a world-record-setting gold medal relay. Breaking the oldest world record in the history books and the last one set by the East Germans.
After graduating from USC I swam professionally representing NIKE and training at Club Wolverines (post-grad program at the University of Michigan). After narrowly missing my third Olympics in 2008 I happily retired from the sport. For the last four years I have been the National Spokesperson for the Jessie Rees Foundation, visiting courageous kids fighting cancer across the country encouraging them to NEGU (Never Ever Give Up). I remain close to the sport as Head Coach of Lake Forest II Dolphins Summer Swim Club, private technique coach, motivational speaker and most recently was the 2016 Olympic Swim Trials arena emcee along with broadcaster for USA Swimming's morning show, "Deck Pass Live". Have a passion for athletics, health, fitness, fashion, public speaking, and giving back. Hoping to break into more broadcasting/hosting gigs.
