Eric began his triathlon journey at an early age, competing in his first IronKids triathlon at 7 years old. Growing up, he competed on the local swim team and ran cross country and track. Eric went on to run collegiately at the NAIA level, making National Appearances in Cross Country and in the 4×800 and Marathon. Ever since that first IronKids race, Eric has never stopped competing in triathlons. He has raced all distances, from Sprint to IM. 

Eric has coached swim team, worked as a Personal Trainer, and is now coaching triathletes while he goes to Chiropractic College in Oregon. Eric has completed a 1 year Coaching Mentorship with Matt Hanson Coaching and is also an ITCA Certified Coach.  

Eric believes strongly in communicating regularly with his athletes and is always available to help meet their needs and offer advice and encouragement. He understands that most of us are not just triathletes and that our daily life can take a toll on us, making it critical that he remain approachable and adaptable in his training plans. He believes that in everything he does, that it must be done for the good of the athlete.
