I am more than my abilities as an ultra runnerβ€”I’m a proud partner, father, friend, and former emergency services professional. My journey into ultra running began in 2017, a pivotal shift from a two-decade career that left me broken but resilient.

After years of selfless service, I confronted my struggles with PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Through intensive therapy and countless miles on the trail, I found healing and purpose. I no longer ran away; I ran towards joy, showing others that there’s always a path forward.

Sharing my story is both terrifying and empowering, but it’s through vulnerability that true strength emerges. Together, let’s break the silence, embrace shared experiences, and remind each other that it’s okay not to be okay.

This is my journey, and this is why I run.
