From college football to college rowing is not the path most people take but it was the one for me. After suffering a career ending injury in my first collegiate football game ever I was lost, overweight and looking for another athletic outlet.
My sister, Kristina (co-founder of Row Republic), recommended I take up rowing to get in shape. I fell in love with the sport, got in shape, and never looked back. My goal is to get as many new people into rowing fitness as possible because it changed my life and I think it can change many others.
Why I Row: The energy. The connection. The power.
Music Style: House. Old school hip hop. Anything that sounds good and gets you amped!
Guilty pleasure: Regina’s Pepperoni Pizza
Dream Row Republic location: Capri
My hope is that people connect with the sport like Joey and I did, and that Row Republic becomes more than a workout—but a community.
I've never been one to turn down a challenge. I grew up an athlete, a performer, and an explorer -- always looking for the next big adventure.
