College attended/Degree/Military Service and what you do now
Attended college in the heart of Bulls Country, University of South Florida! GO BULLS! There I studied Business Marketing and Business Philosophy. Beyond the sales job I kept during college to pay some bills and spending money, I was grateful enough to complete an internship at Premier Physical Therapy in Clearwater, FL.  I currently am a Project Manager for a Contracting Firm.

Your athletic background (did you play competitive sports, college sports; your certifications – including what CrossFit certs you have
During my high school years I played on the football and baseball team. During college I competed in all and every sport I could, even ones that I was not that good at. Honorable highlights included a 4 year reign of winning USF's flag football league. I also refereed just about every sport I could. CrossFit certs: Include Level 1 trainer 

How did you find CrossFit?
After taking up a career type job where you sit at the desk all day, who wants to go to some facility where you are going to do more sitting around and take up more of your own free time with no true progression in fitness or body shape. My old man (who is also my first role model) kept talking about these workouts that he would complete in 20-30 minutes. After a few weeks of pestering me, like all parents do, I soon found myself stepping into my first box. After my first WOD was completed, I was hooked. It was like being in an individual but team sport. It was like dying but living all at the same time. The team, the community, the camaraderie, the energy still gets me pumped when I walk into a box, especially BNI.

Favorite CrossFit move (could be Oly lift, other lift, cardio move, even burpees (if you really love them!))
Squat Snatch or OH Squat

CrossFit athlete you would most like to WOD with (and for what reason)
Anyone who has not made it to the games preferably; those Men and Woman are on a whole different level.
