Adventure Racer, writer, husband, and father of four
My passion for the outdoors brought me to a crossroad and I took the road less traveled, bushwhacking is more like it. I am the founder and Captain for the Mixed Nuts Adventure Racing team and have been an avid adventure racer for 5 years now, leading the team to #1 place 4 Person co-ed team in KY for 2014. I also participate in trail running, mountain biking, and being a full time father of four athletic kids.
Thanks to a very supportive wife I‘ve been able to pursue my passion for endurance sports all while raising four beautiful children and becoming the founder and chief author at www.thegearnuts.com, a website that caters to outdoor athletes and people living the active lifestyle. .
After my father passed away from cancer I’ve learned to take every moment and opportunity for what it is, take nothing for granted, and give everything 100%.

Testimonial: “Barkies are one of the most versatile pieces of gear I use on and off the racecourse, they’re lightweight, multi functional, and have saved me too many times to count. Never leave for an adventure without one.” – Alex Flamm
