I live in Beaufort, SC with my wife, Heather. We relocated here almost 6 years ago when she took a call as the Associate Pastor of Sea Island Presbyterian Church.
We are thankful that my full-time job as a Senior Editor, previously at LexisNexis but now with a division of ProQuest, moved with us. In addition to traveling with me to Beaufort, my job provides the flexibility to pursue my other interests while still paying my part of the light bill.
Specifically, I’ve completed three Ironman distance triathlons (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run) since 2010. Though I’m not the fastest person out there, I really enjoy endurance racing and finished my first 50K in 2012, though I think that might be the longest run I’m willing to try. I’ve completed a number of Half Ironman distance races and shorter triathlons. I am also an endurance swimmer, having completed the Beaufort River Swim three times, including a first place finish in my age group.
I have recently completed my Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership at Gonzaga University in Spokane with a 4.0 GPA.
