I met my beautiful wife, Lori, in 2016 while we were both coaching gymnastics and we began dating the following year. We wasted no time and were married a year and a half later in the summer of 2018. In the spring of 2021 we became licensed foster parents after having felt the Lord call us to foster and adopt. In just our first 12 months of fostering, we were blessed with the opportunity to welcome into our home and love five amazing foster daughters. This journey is only beginning and we can’t wait to see God’s promise fulfilled when we finally get to adopt our first forever baby!
What might people find surprising about you?
Oh, man… Where do I even begin? I am currently a professional wrestler, primarily for the Christian Wrestling Federation, having started in 2015. Prior to that, I spent 18 years of my life as a figure skater/ice dancer. 16 of which I spent chasing a Team USA Olympic spot (which never happened). And the final 2 years of my skating career I performed for Disney on Ice. And I coached gymnastics for almost 18 years.

What movie/show best describes your life?
The movie “TheWrestler” comes to mind, any WWE programming as well, and “The Office”. My wife has accused me of being a real life Michael Scott. I laughed… then cried a little.
